John Griffith
At the
Concours of America


But did John make to the Concours d'LeMons Michigan??

Same place, just one day earlier the Concours d'LeMons, "Celebrating the Oddball, Mundane and truly Awful of the automotive world", was held. It wasn't on the rolling greens of the but a "corner parking lot by the dumpsters."

This is light hearted, irreverent event, in their own words, "farcical". The event is held in three places around the States over the course of the summer. Earlier in April the Concours d'LeMons Georgia was held at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia. There is still one event coming up; the Concours d'LeMons California will be held in Seaside California this coming August 15th.

Grassroots Motorsports and Hagerty Insurance are the major sponsors of the event. Grassroots Motorsports has always promoted motorsports for those on a budget. Hagerty Insurance brings respectability to the event, but I think they are here to see just what they are insuring.


Hagerty Festival of the Unexceptional

This same weekend, at the Whittlebury Park Golf & Country Park, Hagerty Classic Cars UK held its Festival of the Unexceptional. Here is a selection we can't see on this side of the Atlantic. Check out this story from The Telegraph.

INVITATION
British Saloon Cars - RR Run
August 16, 10:00 AM Start.

DONíT BE LATE!
The RR means we start at
RIDGEVILLE and go to RIDGEWAY

According to Google Maps that trip takes only 35 minutes but Google doesn'tít know how to find all the backroads.

We will gather at Timmieís on Hwy 20 at Haist St, around 9:30.

From there we will head to our starting point is at the intersection of Canboro Road and Effingham Street in the village of Ridgeville.

The aim is to get to Ridgeway for lunch while using the absolute minimum of highway or main roads. West Street in Port Colborne will be the first stop to regroup in case anyone falls behind.

In Ridgeway the end of the run is at 209 Ridge Road, a place called The Sanctuary, it was once a church but now provides craft beer and some very nice lunch items. If The Sanctuary is too crowded (possibly on a nice weekend) there are numerous other good places to eat in Ridgeway.

In the last couple of years little Ridgeway has bloomed! The afternoon is yours to explore and discover.
