Scottsdale Motorsports Gathering is this Saturday
Scuderia Southwest is “On the Air” at the Scottsdale Motorsports Gathering. There’s a new radio show that begins airing this Saturday and Scuderia Southwest is teaming up with them! Sports talk radio show Monty in the Morning is starting up a new weekly car centric radio show called “The Cars and Coffee Show” and they will be broadcasting from our event every month. Tim Montemayor - “Monty”, and Jake Montemayor will be talking all things cars live from 7:00-9:00am on 1580am and 99.3fm The Fanatic and the show will repeat at 11:00am. We’re excited about this and other related things that we’ll be rolling out soon and we’ll be updating you as they get ready.
Our theme for March didn’t come together as originally planned so we’ll select a few special cars and position them on the spotlight row and perhaps do a couple of radio interviews with the owners.
Concours in the Hills Recap
What an amazing time! Thanks everybody for coming out and making the 6th annual Concours in the Hills a huge success!!!! There were Miatas, Mustangs, and Maseratis…Cobras, Cadillacs, and Corvettes…Ferraris, Fiskers, and Fiats…everything you can imagine was there. The US Marines were back in force with a pair of their impressive helicopters and they were joined by three other friends of Scuderia Southwest who also brought out their private helicopters. The race cars were impressive and thanks to Arie Luyendyk, Lynn St James, Harley Cluxton, Didier Theys, and Arie Luyendyk, Jr for opening the show.
We set records in every category. Well over 900 cars, 108 sponsors, and over $155k raised for Phoenix Children’s Hospital. We tried, but we don’t even know how to count the people that were there. At noon it was pretty easy to tell that there were over 25,000 people at that moment but because people and come and go, an hour later an entirely different group of people could be there, so it’s possible that two or three times that many people could have wandered in throughout the day!
We had several award categories and the winners were:
Best Car Club Display: Jaguar Club of Central AZ
Best Import: 1970 Maserati Ghibli, Albee Allstadt
Best Domestic to Mike Shoen's 1968 Lonestar Cobra
Best of Show went to Terry Larson’s 1957 Jaguar D-type racer
A great day was had by all!
Save the date…we’re already on the calendar for next year - February 8, 2020.
