Bruce Canepa rolled out a slew of brilliant Porsches for the inaugural Art in Motion (AiM) Concours at the Monticello Motor Club in New York’s Catskills the second weekend in October where Porsche was the featured marque.
Part concours d’elegance and part track day, the event offered a stunning lawn display of automotive beauty plus the fun of fast lapping on the road circuit.
Canepa’s 1969 Porsche 917K took Best of Show while his ’86 962 won first in class in its race. The show’s Finest Competition Award went to Canepas ’81 935 K4.
“… truly a rolling feast,” said Canepa. “We consider ourselves fortunate to have taken part in the beginning of what will hopefully be a long tradition.”
