Savannah’s Speed Classic : OCTOBER 23RD – 25TH

Savannah, unbeknownst to most, is the birth place of Grand Prix racing. From 1908 to 1911, four major automobile races were hosted in the southern city in which automobile drivers from around the world participated in a grand prix auto racing on a twenty-five mile race course laid out southwest of the city proper.

Nestled across the water from famed River Street, Savannah’s own little, private island still comes alive with the roar of engines the last full weekend in October.  Celebrating that heritage the Hilton Head Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance begins with the Speed Classic is a unique road race experience offering an intimate look at the inner workings of racing.  Featuring points series races and even more excitement with test drives and pit access, you’ll be strapped in at full throttle and up close and personal with racing cars and their drivers.
