6:30pm | Welcome Barbecue at The Radnor Hunt Club
The Radnor Hunt Concours d’Elegance weekend begins Friday night with a homemade, cooked-on-site barbecue dinner. This event is a great way to begin the weekend of activities and provides the opportunity to enjoy the company of fellow enthusiasts while listening to music, dancing, and enjoying great food & drink on the patio of the Radnor Hunt Clubhouse.
Please join us for a relaxing time and a “first look” at some of the amazing new and classic cars on display at this year’s Concours!
8:30am to 12:00pm | The Bill O’Connell Memorial Road Rally
The Rally is held rain or shine, and begins at 8:00 AM with Rally Registration and a Driver’s Meeting. The rally concludes with a catered lunch beginning around 12:00 noon.
The per car including one passenger, additional passengers are a separate fee.
INCLUDES: Full Continental Breakfast, Driver and Navigator & Two Radnor Concours Rally Hats PLUS a wonderful catered lunch at the Rally finish line by La Locanda Ristorante.
In order to keep it a friendly event, we created two classes; Classic for the older cars and Sports for the newer. We also learned along the way that the majority of entrants were inclined to like a pleasant drive through the country, so we replaced the traditional TSD style. The event now consists of a series of questions along with stops at various sponsors to collect a sealed envelope with a playing card. The cards are used for a poker hand to break ties.
Trophies and prizes are awarded to both the driver and navigator of the winning cars in each class. There are also sub-classes for marques that have at least 5 vehicles entered. Other awards include The Most Intriguing (or “What kind of car is that?”) that is awarded to the most interesting vehicle, which could be a 1912 Normal, or a topless car driven even if it rains. Great prizes and trophies for the winners will be awarded (note: in order to share the wealth, a car can only win one jackpot).
Do you enjoy driving your car in a relaxing environment through gorgeous countryside ending at a great lunch? If the answer to that is “Yes”, please click on the link to the rally entry form here.
