WAYNE CARINI TO BE THE MASTER OF CEREMONIES FOR THE 9TH ANNUAL AMERICANA MANHASSET CONCOURS D’ELEGANCE
MANHASSET, NY (July 2013) – Americana Manhasset is pleased to announce that Wayne Carini, noted collector-car archeologist, and host of Velocity’s CHASING CLASSIC CARS will be the Master of Ceremonies for the 9th Annual Americana Manhasset Concours D’Elegance, which takes place on Sunday, October 20.
The event has grown into one of New York’s premier luxury car events featuring 150 rare, privately owned cars that compete for Best in Class as well as Best in Show titles. Official judging begins at 9:30. The results of the competition and the award presentation, courtesy of Tiffany & Co., will take place at 2pm on the north side of the Americana Manhasset.
“The Americana Manhasset Concours is unique for the caliber of cars that are on the field, as well as for the location. The event draws from the origins of Concours events, in which cars of the day served as a backdrop for the latest fashions,” notes Mr. Carini. “This event is exciting because it showcases a range of cars from pre-war to one-off supercars in a spectacular, modern fashion setting.”
The 2013 event will also be the East Coast debut of the P 4/5 Competizione which finished First in Class 12 OA at the 2012 24 Hours of Nurburgring.
This year, the Concours will benefit Sunrise Day Camp through the purchase of raffle tickets to win a 2013 Maserati Quattroporte V-6 courtesy of Maserati of Long Island. Sunrise Day Camp is the only dedicated camp in the nation for children with cancer and their siblings, where summer camp and year-round programs are provided free of charge.
