his crowd-pulling, crowd-pleasing authentic 1956 NASCAR Mercury Monterey stock car to
Lime Rock Park. Going forward, the Russ Truelove Award will be presented at Sunday in
the Park to those demonstrating exceptional dedication to the car-showing hobby. Russ is
delivering the Monterey to Daytona this fall, and he’ll fly down rather than drive down
when the Frances ring him up...

And the Historic Festival Honored Collector is...


Chairman Murray Smith today announced that Wayne Carini will be the Honored Collector for Historic Festival 34 Presented by the Prestige Family of Fine Cars, Labor Day weekend September 2 - 5. Carini, from Portland, Conn., is the charismatic host of one of the most popular cable TV shows in America, the HD-only “Chasing Classic Cars” on Discovery Channel-owned Velocity.

Wayne Carini is not only a widely recognized TV personality, but a highly regarded restorer; a pre-eminent Ferrari expert; a much sought-after concours judge; and owner of F40 Motorsports (buys and sells vintage and classic automobiles), Continental Auto, Ltd. (high-end and exotic automobile repair and bodywork), and Carini Carozzeria (restoration shop where Wayne spends much of his time). Carini Consulting advises and manages collections for clients around the world.

Wayne’s personal car collection has never been seen publicly, but he enthusiastically welcomed the opportunity to bring a half-dozen of his favorite cars, a half-dozen motorcycles, and a very special “hauler-and-racecar” combo to Lime Rock Park for the Festival when he accepted Sunday in the Park Concours organizer Kent Bain’s offer to be the Honored Collector.

“I am deeply honored to have been named the festival and concours honored collector,” Wayne told us. “Yes, I am pretty private when it comes to my collection – one of my favorite things to do is invite a few close friends over, head down to the cars, and simply wander around and enjoy – but it just feels right to bring some of my favorites to Lime Rock.

“And that’s because Lime Rock means so much to me... It was the early 1960s, I had just turned 10, and my birthday present was a trip to see the races at Lime Rock. We went up in my Dad’s 1928 Lincoln Touring car, and I was so incredibly thrilled to be going to a race track! It was unbelievable. No doubt, going to Lime Rock for the races set a hook that, in retrospect, certainly helped point me down the road to where I am today. I’ve raced there, judged there, filmed shows there... To be named honored collector is incredibly special to me. Thank you, Kent, Murray and Skip [Barber].”

Wayne loves special, one of a kind vehicles. What he’s bringing to the Historic Festival will be wildly diverse – two-, three- and four-wheeled – and it’s safe to say you won’t ever have another opportunity to see them live and up close other than here at Lime Rock.

One car he’s bringing we are allowed to reveal now is an amazing 1,000 h.p. ’32 Ford that has made dozens of record-breaking runs at Bonneville.

Wayne says, “We will start it up. And you will be flattened, I promise. Its sound is incredible...”

At Historic Festival 34, Wayne Carini will make special visits to Mohegan Sun VIP Fan Hospitality on Saturday and Monday (get your Fan Hospitality pass now, they’re sure to sell-out); autograph sessions with Wayne will also be scheduled throughout the weekend.

When he is not traveling the world chasing cars, Wayne enjoys spending time with his family in the log home that he built more than 40 years ago in rural Connecticut, and working on his new dream, Carini Vineyards, on the farm the family just purchased. The family loves to take summer afternoon rides in their 1927 Bentley Touring Car whenever they can. Wayne’s youngest daughter especially enjoys “going fast.” She was diagnosed with autism at an early age. Wayne has been an avid supporter of autism awareness and research organizations ever since. He helps to organize and sponsor car events for the benefit of children and adults with autism, especially in Connecticut.

(Lime Rock Park encourages you to visit Autism Families Connecticut ( for you to consider volunteering or donating.)

NEWS: Historic Festival 34, September 1 - 5

Honored Guests Confirmed
Special ‘Tin Top’ and Historic Trans-Am Race Groups

Presenting Sponsor Announced: The Prestige Family of Fine Cars

Since 1983, Lime Rock Park has held its annual celebration of historic motoring significance by combining authentic-car vintage racing with a prestigious Concours d’Elegance. It’s an event unique to North America in that the racing and the concours are all on one property during one major vintage and historic event.

The historic racing on Lime Rock’s classic 1.5-mile, 7-turn circuit on Friday, Saturday and Labor Day Monday sandwiches the Sunday in the Park Concours d’Elegance, held on the track’s 2,200-foot Sam Posey Straight.

In the past decade the Historic Festival has added a 17-mile race car parade-and-rally over local roads and through three town centers, ending in a community street fair in nearby Falls Village, as well as creating a 1,000-car Gathering of the Marques car show that’s held concomitant with the concours.

Chairman Murray Smith confirmed a number of other elements for this year’s Historic Festival 34...

 The Festival welcomes a presenting sponsor, the Prestige Family of Fine Cars, the leading vehicle dealer network in the Tri-State Region with more than 50 years of service to the car-buying public in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The Prestige Family of Fine Cars retails a number of marques including BMW, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Scion, Toyota and Volkswagen, out of Wappingers Falls and Middletown, N.Y.; Paramus, Mahwah and Ramsey, N.J.; and Stamford, Conn. The Prestige Performance team is completing in their second year of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Series and they are currently the championship leaders. 

 Historic Festival 34’s Honored Guests are the dynamic duo of John Morton and Pete Brock (below). Among Brock’s numerous accomplishments is, of course, his designing the Daytona Cobra Coupe and founding his wildly successful Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE)... for which Morton was asked to drive and together, they won prodigiously between 1969 and 1972 in BRE Datsuns in C-Production and 2.5-liter Trans-Am. Morton will race a BRE Datsun 240Z over the weekend, too

 The new-for-2016 Tin Top race group has already burgeoned to 20+ entries, with more expected

Another of this year’s nine race groups will be the wildly popular cars from the Historic Trans-Am organization (below); authentic pony cars that raced in Trans-Am in the iconic 1966 - 1972 period. Don't miss this!

AExpect 250+ exceptional entrants for the Sunday in the Park Concours d'Elegance, plus another 900+ cars to be entered into the Gathering of the Marques element

Historic Festival 34 does not charge for parking, kids 16 and under get free admission with accompanying adult(s), veterans and active military free admission
