FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                     January 4, 2017

Scuderia Southwest acquires Concours in the Hills

 Scuderia Southwest, one of Arizona’s largest car clubs, announced today that it has acquired Concours in the Hills, the largest car show in Arizona for high performance and collector cars.

 Concours in the Hills, held annually in February in the park around the lake and fountain in Fountain Hills, was started in 2014. In three years it has grown to 513 cars in 2016 with some 15,000 spectators and 67 sponsors. A charity event benefitting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale raised $90,000 in 2016.

 Peter Volny, who started the show and is also on the board of Scuderia Southwest stated “Scuderia Southwest is one of Arizona’s largest and the most prestigious car club and organizer of the immensely popular monthly Motorsports Gathering held at The Shops at Gainey Village and the annual Festival of Speed so it only made sense to add Concours in the Hills to their growing portfolio.”

 Concours in the Hills will be held on Saturday February 11, 2017 from 10AM – 3PM featuring a diverse range of ultra-high performance sports, luxury and classic vehicles from both imported and domestic manufacturers in one of the most spectacular locations in the Phoenix area.

 Concours in the Hills is not a formal “white glove” event, but rather a casual and fun gathering of automobile enthusiasts on the green grass around one of the world’s tallest fountains.

 The Concours is supported by the leading car clubs of Arizona representing Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Porsche, McLaren, Jaguar, Corvette, Viper, Ford GT, Lotus, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Alfa Romeo, DeTomaso, DeLorean, Mustang, Cadillac and others.

Vehicle entries are a minimum donation of $50 to the Boys & Girls Clubs. Spectator admission and parking is free. In case of rain, the event will be rescheduled for February 18.

 Automobile owners and sponsors who are interested in participating at the 2017 Concours in the Hills can register on line at or contact event organizer Peter Volny at:


Merry Christmas and January Spotlight

Santa, a long time Scuderia Southwest follower, took a break today after Saturday's big night and flew Rudolph through some twisty mountain roads.  He asked that we pass on his wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all the Scuderia Southwest followers and remind everyone about the January Motorsports Gathering (details below)!

 Join us on Saturday the 7th for another month of amazing cars.  For January we'll have cars that have been accepted into the Arizona Concours d'Elegance as well as a few cars that will be crossing the auction block at Russo and Steele.  It's car season in Arizona and you can get a sneak peak at Scuderia Southwest's Scottsdale Motorsports Gathering - the best cars and coffee event in the country!

As always, details for time, location and rules can be found here:

What a great day it was! Thanks everybody!

On behalf of Toys for Tots, the US Marine Corps and Scuderia Southwest, we would like to thank you for the big pile of toys donated this morning at the Motorsports Gathering!!!  

Also - thanks for yet another good month with magazine collections for the VA Hospital.  You guys are great!


I'd also like to thank a several key partners.  Very understanding when things go sideways and just all-around great guys.  We are so happy to be associated with them: The guys at Russo and Steele, Apex Motor Club, Elite Towing and Transport, and Protect-A-Shield.

And thanks to Brian for sending in a few shots of those low class Volkswagons ;)

At the December Gathering...A Lambo for Christmas!

Santa - I've been very good this year.  Please bring me a Lamborghini Aventador SV, in Rosa Bia...PLEASE!

For December, our car of the month feature is Lamborghini.  We'll bring out the bull so bring all your friends.  Aventador, Huracan, Countach and Miura...there will be something for everyone.  That's a pretty good showing of fast cars from a.........tractor company.

We will also have a Toys for Tots drive going on so bring an unwrapped toy.  We should have a large military truck on hand as our collection vehicle.

Don't forget, we collect magazines every month that get distributed to the VA Hospital.  It doesn't matter what magazine, bring them all.
