The third biennial Turtle Invitational is upon us! Please visit the show website here to learn more. Entries are now closed and we expect a full field of extraordinary classic cars and motorcycles. However, classic vehicles are welcome to come and be displayed on the Seabring non-judged show field.
ABOUT THE TURTLE INVITATIONAL:
What: A group of passionate enthusiasts come together for a weekend of camaraderie, cars, motorcycles, cocktails, and conversations. A stunning roster of classic vehicles fill the show field. The Turtle Invitational does not aim to be just another stop on the crowded and stale Concours de’ Elegance tour. Our goal is to put on a spectacular weekend gathering where old friends are seen and new ones are made. The Turtle Invitational blends the gravitas of Davos, the quality of Amelia Island, the intrigue of an 18th century French salon, and the intellectual stimulation of a 19th century Chautauqua.
When: The 2021 Turtle Invitational will be held over the weekend of September 25th and 26th. Festivities will begin on Saturday afternoon with a rally commencing at 3 pm at the Hagerty Garage + Social, touring through bucolic northern Westchester County, and ending with dinner at the Pray Achievement Center in Bedford New York. Sunday’s show will start at 10:00 am, with the Turtle Invitational gates opening at 7:30 am for the arrival of show cars and motorcycles, followed by judging, lunch, and the celebratory after-party featuring Veuve Cliquot champagne.
Logistics: The show field is reserved for pre-registered invited and accepted cars and motorcycles. These cars and motorcycles are hand selected and approved by the Board based on their rarity, beauty, and historical significance. Only cars that have been pre-selected (in advance) by the board will be granted access to the show field and are eligible to be judged and partake in the awards ceremony. We require invited and approved cars to provide payment well prior to the event. WE WILL NOT HANDLE ANY REGISTRATION PAYMENTS ON SITE DURING THE EVENT. EXHIBITORS MUST PAY THEIR REGISTRATION FEE AHEAD OF TIME. Please be sure to pay the $250.00 prior to the show if your application is approved. You can make your payment by logging into MotorsportReg. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or problems.
Non-Registered Cars and General Spectators: If your vehicle is not accepted for the show field in 2021, you are welcome to bring your car or motorcycle and enjoy the event. We will be providing non-registered classic vehicle parking at an adjacent meadow contiguous to the show field. Hagerty Youth Judges will pick one car from the non-registered field that will be invited to the podium for a special award. There is a $20 gate fee for all spectators (including those with classic vehicles that are not registered for the show field). We will accept cash and credit cards for spectator fees and lunch tickets on-site at the gate. Kids under 15 are free. We ask that all attendees also consider a tax-deductible donation to the Pray Family Foundation. Finally, given the generosity of Danbury Porsche/Audi, there is a designated parking area on the south side of the show field reserved for any spectators that arrive in a Porsche, Audi, or VW.
Honoree: Turtle Garage is proud to announce the Turtle Invitational 2021 Honored Guest and recipient of the Golden Turtle Award will be the legendary Bob Sharp.
