As spring marches forward we once again take a look back at the 25th Annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance.
It is the cars that bring us together, but the people that make The Amelia special.

Our annual gathering is a time of reunions. In 2020, The Amelia reunited Roger Penske with more than 30 vehicles associated with The Captain and Team Penske. Thanks to Wheels Up, nine former Amelia Honorees returned to celebrate our Silver Anniversary. Friends from across the globe assembled at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island and on the fairways of The Golf Club of Amelia Island, many for the first time in years.

The 2020 seminars included Friday's "Penske Perfect - Effort Equals Results" and Saturday's "Team Penske - The Early Years." The energy in the room, fueled by the entertaining panelists and the capacity crowds, was palpable.

Special classes provide The Amelia with the chance to think outside the box. A highlight of this year's concours was "Rolling Bones." The class honored the origins of American hot rodding, celebrating the spirit of the earliest rods to slash across the dry lakes and salt flats on the weekends yet serve as transportation during the week.
"Rolling Bones" were a hit at the event.

What entertaining seminars and interesting special classes will be showcased in 2021? Which legend of racing will we honor? Answers to those questions and more will be revealed in the coming months.

We look forward to reuniting once again March 4-7, 2021, at the 26th Annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance.
