The second annual Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance, produced and promoted by JHE, returns May 2-4, 2014. The weekend will kick off a celebrated six-week period at Pinehurst Resort which will also host the 2014 U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open Championships in mid-June consecutively.
The signature event blends the history, heritage and grandeur from three of North Carolina’s proudest traditions – motorsports, golf and military – in a unique celebration of America’s passion for the automobile and for the benefit of the brave men and women who protect and provide the very freedom we enjoy as United States citizens.
This year, Pinehurst Concours Chairman Bob Ingram will lead a board of advisors who will help to broaden the reach of the classic car showcase. Twelve members will make up the board, including Tommy Bolton, civilian aide senior to the secretary of the Army; Jamie Doyle, Sports Car Digestpublisher; Rory Ingram, Ingram Collection managing director; Terry Karges, Peterson Automotive Museum executive director; Randy Leffingwell, veteran writer for AutoWeekand Los Angeles Times; Chad McQueen, actor and racer; Bruce Meyer, founder of Peterson Automotive Museum; Graham Moore, Fort Bragg area businessman; Tom Pashley, Pinehurst Resort executive vice president; Murray Smith, historic car collector and racing organizer; Freeman Thomas, director of strategic design for Ford Motor Company North America; and Matt West, founder and CEO of Intangibles.
The inaugural Pinehurst Concours in May 2013 attracted more than 5,000 fans despite rain and unseasonably cool temperatures, and received rave reviews from entrants and collector car enthusiasts across the country.
