Bill Warner and his team delivered yet another whirlwind weekend of cars, cars and more cars in spite of a major challenge from Mother Nature.
2017 Honoree was Al Unser, standing next to the Borg Warner Trophy holding up four fingers, one for each time he won the Indianapolis 500. They paid tribute to his contribution to racing by exhibiting a number of his significant racecars from IROC, Indy, Pikes Peak and Daytona.
The Desmarais family owns this very original D-Type. Since sold in 1955 it has acquired a single repaint and about 9,000 miles. That didn’t stop them from participating in the Reliable Carriers Eight Flags Road Tour, right. Competition D-Types and their more street-oriented siblings, the XK-SS, were one of a number of featured groups at this year’s AICE.
