Amelia Concours Wins World Wide Award

   
    London, England - For an unprecedented second time in just four years the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance has won Octane Magazine's EFG International Historic Motoring Award for the Best Motoring Event of the Year. The award was presented in special ceremonies in Guildhall, London, England, Thursday evening, November 17.
 
    As the only American event nominated for the prestigious international award the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance faced strong international competition from the Concours of Elegance ,Windsor Castle (England), Chantilly Arts & Elegance (Paris), Concorso d'Eleganza Ville D'Este (Italy), Regent Street Motor Show (London) and the Rømø Motor Festival (Denmark).
 
    "Just being nominated for the IHMA is an extraordinary honor," said Bill Warner, founder and Chairman of the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. "To be nominated every year of the award's existence has been overwhelming. This year we were the only American nominee in the category. When we won the IHMA in 2013 we were very pleased, especially considering the quality, depth and reputations of the finalists.
 
    "We can only say a sincere 'thank you' again to the awards committee and our staff and especially to our 700 volunteers who always seem to be having fun. It's their selfless dedication that makes 'The Amelia' and both our IHMA awards possible," said Warner.
