2015 Sunday in the Park Concours d’Elegance Results

At Lime Rock Park’s Historic Festival 33, its Sunday in the Park Concours d’Elegance saw 264 entrants in 29 classes vying for Best of Show honors. The not-surprising but certainly deserving 1930 Mercedes-Benz SSK “Count Trossi” was judged the winner. The custom-bodied SSK is owned by Ralph Lauren.

Originally built with a competition “spyder” body by Carrozzeria Touring, between 1931 and 1933 this SSK was campaigned in the Mille Miglia, various hill climbs and other local events by original owner Trossi and following owners. The Italian count re-purchased the car and commissioned new bodywork in 1934. Willy White, an unknown American coachbuilder, is presumed to be the designer of the spectacular coachwork but that’s never been confirmed.

“The Trossi SSK is truly a work of art,” said Festival organizer Murray Smith. “This car is so rarely seen in public, I can’t thank Ralph enough for entering it in our concours for everyone to enjoy." The Lauren SSK previously won Best of Show at the 1993 Pebble Beach concours and at Italy's Villa d'Este concours in 2007.

Appropriately, the SSK was shown alongside five other spectacularly important Mercedes competition cars; two from the Mercedes Classic Center in Germany (the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR “722” and a 1955 Mercedes-Benz W196 Grand Prix Silver Arrow), two from The Revs Institute of Naples, Fla. (1939 Mercedes-Benz W154 and 1914 Mercedes Grand Prix car), and one from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum (1908 Mercedes Brooklands).


Jochen’s Selection

Stirling’s Selection
1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR “722,” Mercedes Classic, Stuttgart, Ger.

2014 Historic Festival 32 Sunday in the Park Concours Awards (2013 further below)

At Lime Rock Park’s 32nd Sunday in the Park Concours d’ Elegance presented by Bentley, September 1, 224 vehicles in 29 classes were presented and judged. When the results were tabulated, a 1933 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 owned by Peter Sachs of Stamford, Conn., won Best of Show. The stellar yellow-cream car had been entered in Class 3, “Risky but Racy, competition machines of merit pre-1945.”

This car was delivered to Tazio Nuvolari for the 1933 24 Hours of Le Mans; Alfa Romeo teamed Nuvolari with Raymond Sommer (who didn’t trust Nuvolari with the car!). In the race, they built a two-lap lead but had to pit due to a fuel leak, said to have been plugged with chewing gum. Nuvolari broke the lap record nine times and won the race by about a quarter-mile.

(Click here for photos from the awards ceremonies. Click here for Race results.)

The Class 3 winner was a 1934 MG K3 Magnette, presented by the Collier Collection’s “Revs Institute,” which sent four other cars to Lime Rock: a 1964 and a 1970 Abarth, an OSCA MT-4, and the 1935 MG PA-PB Leonidis, winner of Class 1, “Out in the Elements, open vehicles of distinction pre-1945.”

Another notable class winner was Dennis Nicotra’s pre-production 1964 Mercedes 300 SL (Class 13, “Power to Spare – and Grace to Boot”). There are numerous fascinating pre-production features of this car different from production Gullwings, including slightly different exterior proportions, hand formed under-hood sheet metal components, steel door hinges, and an asymmetrical roof vent. This prized 300 SL was recently restored – its first – by Germany’s respected 300 SL experts, HK Engineering. This car was initially delivered to Briggs Cunningham.

A literally untouched-since-it-raced in the 1961, 1962 and 1963 Targo Florios – a 1963 Alfa Romeo Zagato SZ – handily won Class 22, “Just as We Found It, untouched or minimally massaged.” There are photos from the 1963 race showing the tape that still surrounds the headlights today. The car is owned by Larry Garcia.

Roger Werner’s 1965 Cobra Mark 1 took Class 12, “A Sporting Proposition, sports cars 1962 - 1970” honors, while Class 26, “Pick of the Paddock,” for cars presented in the Concours that are racing over the weekend, was won by Tom Cotter’s 1964 Chevrolet Corvette.

Class 18 was nine cars, all Porsche Speedsters – “The Essence of Speed-ster” – and the winner was Steven Harris’s 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster.

Class 7, “Form Follows Function, useful, practical and commercial vehicles 1955-1985,” was won by a beautiful 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special, owned by Daniel Plotkin.

The Honored Motorcycle Collector for Historic Festival 32 was Robert Machinist, who brought five fantastic bikes: a 1967 Ducati 350; 1972 Ducati 750 sport; 1974 Ducati 750 sport; 1975 MV Agusta 350 sport; 1976 MV Agusta 750 s America; and a 2000 MV Agusta F4. Alongside were the motorcycles in Class 21, “Less Is More,” won by a 1953 Triumph Twenty One 6T Bluebird, owned by Michael Marino.

Virgil Exner’s stunning one-off dream car, the 1960 Plymouth XNR, was entered into Class 23, “America’s Finest, Post-WWII.” Up against a phalanx of Lincolns and Cadillacs, the XNR took the trophy. Early in his career, Exner had a stint with Hall of Famer industrial designer Raymond Loewy... who drew up all the designs for Lime Rock’s buildings, pit lane and training facilities in 1956. Regrettably, the track’s investors ran out of money before anything of Loewy’s could be built.

People’s Choice went to an imposing but still approachable 1926 Kissel Speedster, owned by Andrew Benenson. Benenson also owns the 1951 Cisitalia C 202 that won Class 17, “The Other Italians.”

Joe Freeman entered his 1947 HRG 1100 Roadster and won Class 8, “For Road & Track, the cars the boys brought home, sports cars 1945-1955.”

In Class 14, “Businessman’s Express, GTs 1960-1965,” the 1963 Porsche Carrera 2 of Tom & Kristin Zarrella took the trophy.

Lime Rock President Skip Barber is given the opportunity to peruse the Sunday in the Park field and choose cars that earn a “Skip’s Sunday Best” award. This year: 1919 Stutz Bearcat (Myron Schuster); 1956 Mercury Monterey NASCAR stock car (Russ Truelove); 1949 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Villa D’Este (Jon Savage); 1956 OSCA MT-4 Tipo Nuovo (Mitch Eitel); 1960 Cadillac Eldorado (Joseph O’Connell); and a 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A Carrera Speedster (Ben & Rob Edwards).

In “A Damsel’s Delight,” another special class, it was a brilliant one-off station wagon that took home the fancy glassware: a 1960 Bentley S2 Wendler Shooting Brake. Designed by Wendler of Germany, this car was commissioned by an American (who also owned a Wendler Mercedes-Benz 300S Shooting Brake). It’s the only one-off made by Wendler for Bentley.

And in what Historic Festival chairman Murray Smith called “the largest collection of racing Formula Juniors in America, in one place at one time,” the entire 29-car FJ field was pushed out onto the track for Sunday. Winning “best in show” of the Juniors was Mitch Eitel’s 1959 O.S.C.A., with Bob Goeldner’s 1962 Brabham BT2 and the 1963 Lotus 18 of Nick Grewal rounding out the “podium.”
