The driver’s reception for the 2009 Hilton Head/Savannah Speed Classic was held at Johnson Square in Savannah this afternoon. The Speed Classic is the starting event for the Hilton Head Concours d’Elegance weekend. A parade of racing cars left the track at Hutchinson Island and drove over the Tallmadge Bridge into the historic district for the reception. You should have heard the sound of the engines echoing between the builds of beautiful down town Savannah!
The best part for me was seeing the Cayman Interseries cars driving through town and parked around the square. I can not wait to see them on the track. They are absolutely gorgeous in their 917 livery! The drivers seemed to be having a great time and Roy and I really enjoyed talking to Jim Bacus about his Cayman and the series. They will be practicing and qualifying tomorrow and racing on Saturday. If you live in the area do not miss the event and the chance to see the Cayman Interseries cars in action as well as the vintage racing cars.
