Heacock Happenings: Highlights from Amelia Island 2019

Posted by on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 in Articles

Heacock Classic was again a proud participant at this year’s Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.  As always we participated in our long-standing sponsorship of Saturday’s Cars and Coffee, the foundation’s silent auction, and our award during Sunday’s Concours for most Elegant French Coachwork.

This year was even more exciting as we had Heacock Policyholder and 1975 winner of the Cannonball Run, Jack May, and his record setting Ferrari 246 GTS Dino, on display in our booth.  Amelia Island founder Bill Warner also ran in that year’s Cannonball and Historic Racing News caught up with both of them at our booth for a very entertaining interview.

The overall Concours honoree this year was famous race car driver Jacky Ickx, six time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.  Jacky personally signed a poster for us to give away at our booth on Sunday during the Concours, where Historic Racing News as able to capture Pete’s Perspective on the event and broadcast the drawing for the winner of the poster.

Finally, we were able to partner with Historic Racing News to bring the first ever live stream of the event to the world.  As such we have these exciting moments recorded to history that we can now share with you.  From all of us at Heacock Classic, Jacky Ickx, The Historic Racing News, and our very own policyholder Jack May: Stay Driven!
