When enthusiasts discuss the “best of the best,” these drivers always make the list: Petty in oval racing, Moss in road racing and Garlits in drag racing. “The King” Richard Petty, Sir Stirling Moss OBE and “Big Daddy” Don Garlits are unsurpassed in their combined number of races entered and won. Their victories and records of achievement comprise a staggering number, and their worldwide influence on their respective branches of motorsports is undeniable. But, perhaps most importantly, each of these individuals has continued to contribute to the world of motorsports as tremendous ambassadors.
On Saturday, March 13, 2010, at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, there will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see and hear these three icons discuss their careers, exploits and important milestones. In a seminar hosted by David Hobbs and Sam Posey, there will surely be stories and tales about the golden age of stock car racing, sports car racing and drag racing – before the influence of million dollar advertising.
Bill Warner, founder and co-chairman of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, says, “To have these three racing giants at one place is unprecedented. This is a historical moment for all race fans.”
Tickets for this seminar are limited, and can be purchased at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance website at www.ameliaconcours.org or at the door.
