Ferrari Club Concours d’Elegance

Since 1964, the Ferrari Club of America (FCA) has held an Annual Meet in North America. This is a multi-day, national FCA event held in a different location each year, always near to a renowned road racing track. Last year in 2015 it was held in Monterey, CA after Pebble Beach Week; see 2015 Concours and 2015 Laguna Seca for write ups.

This year in June 2016, the Ferrari Club National Meet was held in Columbus, Ohio near the historic Mid-Ohio Sports track.  The Ferrari Club Concours d’Elegance was held on the 18th hole at the Brookside Golf and Country Club in Columbus. The theme for the Meet was: Honoring the Ferrari 275 and its 50th Anniversary. The weather was perfect, the cars were spectacular, Ferrari North America (FNA) brought some additional eye candy, as did Ferrari dealers Cauley and Continental.

Ferrari Club members came from all over to attend  the impressive FCA Concours d’Elegance. Logistics were smooth, attendance was good, and tickets were available at the gate for the public (with proceeds going to charity). In addition to the Concours, there is a Competitive Rally & Pleasure Drive through the countryside, multiple days of racetrack activities, a vendor market (Mercato di Ferrari), seminars, receptions, charity auction and banquet with award presentations. Hats off to the FCA Ohio Chapter and Central States Region for organizing this feat.

Here is a walk through the Ferrari Club Concours
