Best in Clearly show winners for the 2022 Amelia Concours d’Elegance have been just declared, and we had been there to see the pair roll up and declare their prizes.
The Amelia, like some other concours activities, fingers out two “best in show” awards. The primary (and most prized) award goes to the overall Finest in Clearly show, and this yr it is the 1934 Duesenberg J-531 Convertible Coupe.
In the meantime, the next award goes to the Very best in Exhibit for “Sport.” In other words and phrases, it is the Finest in Clearly show among the many motorsports entries in the display. This award goes to the 2017 Cadillac DPi-V.R car or truck you see pictured at the best of this write-up with the Duesenberg. The Konica Minolta vehicle won the 24 Several hours of Daytona underneath Wayne Taylor Racing’s stewardship and was the automobile that marked Cadillac’s rather thriving return to prototype racing.
The Duesenberg that won was section of an all-Duesenberg class, and the Cadillac was section of a 60th Anniversary of the Daytona 24 Hour class. It was the newest racecar on exhibit, so it profitable as opposed to the a lot of other outdated racecars was a little bit of a shock for a concours event.
We’ll have tons of images coming from the relaxation of the field at The Amelia soon, so stay tuned for a mega gallery coming your way.
