Scarsdale Concours d’Elegance

The Scarsdale Concours d’Elegance is one of the premier motoring events taking place in New York. Featuring cars as far-fetched as the Citroen 2CV, to the Porsche 918 Weissach, the Scarsdale Concours d’Elegance offers no shortage of excellent and exciting vehicles. This event takes place on the first of October in the beautiful town of Scarsdale, New York. Interestingly, the Scarsdale Concours d’Elegance was founded in 2003 by students of the Scarsdale High School. It is a non-profit organization, and they have raised over $400,000 for local charities and agencies.

Peekskill Vintage Grand Prix

The Peekskill Grand Prix is one of the best motoring events that occur within New York State. It is a “motoring event” that takes place on Sunday, October 15, and it is free. A course is laid out throughout the village of Peekskill, and certain classes of automobiles are allocated a certain amount of time to complete it. It isn’t intended to be a race or competition. It is just for the owners of some of the world’s most magnificent cars to have the opportunity to put them through their paces.
