Corvettes and Porsches are invited to attend the inaugural Pinehurst Fairway Drive presented by AutoTrader Classics, with each brigade headed by cars owned by automotive executive and champion car owner Rick Hendrick and business executive and noted Porsche collector Bob Ingram.

Up to 118 selected Corvettes and Porsches will be staged in battlefield formation Saturday, May 4, on the same two fairways adjacent to the famed Pinehurst Resort Clubhouse that will house the show field for the inaugural Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, May 5.

“Rick and I are excited about presenting our particular collector car of choice in what is truly going to be a memorable weekend in the annals of North Carolina automobile history,” said Ingram, the honorary Chairman of the Pinehurst Concours. “Car enthusiasts will see quite a collection of sports cars as a warmup to the main Pinehurst Concours showcase event Sunday.”

Potential entrants for the Pinehurst Fairway Drive presented by AutoTrader Classics are asked to log on to www.pinehurstconcours.com, where they can submit model, year and any show history. Entrants will be notified of their selection by April 12. Once the invitation is accepted, a field parking pass will be mailed.

Cars will load the field between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. on May 4, with the staging open to the public free of charge from 9 a.m. to noon. After viewing the rare Corvettes and Porsches, fans can attend a classic car auction staged by RKM Collector Car Auctions at the nearby Pinehurst Fair Barn.

More than 100 collectable autos will be for sale at the Saturday auction. General admission tickets for the auction are $25, with discounts for seniors, students, military and children. See www.RKMCollectorCarAuctions.com for details.
