Amelia Island 2018

Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, 10 March 2018.

The 23rd edition of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance once again occupied the 10th and 18th fairways of The Golf Club of Amelia Island, adjacent to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, with over 300 cars and motorcycles for the attendee’s delectation. They say that “lightning doesn’t strike twice”, but this seemed to be the case as the weather forecast for the traditional Sunday show was ominous, as

it had been last year, and the decision was made once again to bring the show forward to the Saturday. As it turned out, lightning didn’t strike twice, as the forecasters were awry in their predictions, with Sunday’s weather being equally as good as that on the Saturday, but the deed was done and Saturday it was. As was the case last year, Saturday’s “Cars & Coffee” gathering, normally held on the main show field, was transferred to the free to enter MotorXpo field across the street.
