Proof Nobody Does Vintage Car Events Quite like the Italians

Not too often you get to participate to an event where you see classic cars racing on a street circuit a few meters away from the sea—in Tuscany. I dare to say, only in Italy you can get three Lancia Stratos sideways in the tiniest streets imaginable, all the while shaded by tall and beautiful maritime pines.

Into its fourth edition, the Cartier Concours d’Elegance, other than managing to gather some of India’s finest historic vehicles, has contributed immensely to the betterment of the classic car and bike movement in India. As many as 80 cars and 19 motorcycles were competing in nine classes for cars and three classes for motorcycles, with 21 trophies to vie for. With well known international judges, the event should have been without any controversy…yet there were some surprises.

With hundreds of events to choose from each year, classic car owners can enter their machines into any form of competition, from historic rallies to full-blown concours judging on show fields around the world. For a more laid-back atmosphere, however, there are a number of regional events like the Franciacorta Historic that have been steadily growing in recent years due to their combination of location, smaller size, and often less frenetic demands on both drivers and vehicles.

Group C Legends At The 73rd Goodwood Members’ Meeting

The 73rd Goodwood Members’ Meeting is an event that looks to revive the spirit of early British Automobile Racing Club (BARC) competition. However, spectators at this year’s member’s meeting were also treated to high-speed demonstrations from one of the most popular classic racing series to re-emerge in recent years: the heart-pounding machines of Group C.

These machines had been purpose built to be fast, with speeds on the Mulsanne Straight during the 24 Hours of Le Mans to exceed 200mph (321 km/h). Testament to this obsession with outright performance is the record for the highest speed ever achieved by a sports racing car in competition: a staggering 253 mph (407 km/h) set by a WM P88-Peugeot in 1988.

It’s quite a show. Now in its second edition of the modern age, the 73rd Goodwood Member’s Meeting had high standards to meet after the “inaugural” event last year when the member’s meeting format returned from almost half a century without it.

The 2015 meeting did not disappoint, with Lord March and the Goodwood Road and Racing Club delivering a memorable spectacle with action packed races and high speed demonstrations from a variety of eras.

Luftgekühlt II did not lack for rare Porsches. Highlights included uber-rare 964 3.8 RS; street and race-prepped 904s and 906s; a 1971 East African Safari 911; a 959, a 964 Carrera 4 RS Lightweight; the Petersen Automotive Museum's early 356 Continental Cabriolet; and a Le Mans-winning Kremer 935 driven into the event by good friend of Petrolicious, Bruce Meyer. This event was like being a kid in a candy story–that is, if that candy store is filled with Porsches.
