Along with the posts on Facebook, here are the pics from Sunday, April 24. Enjoy and see you next year!!
LARGEST EVER FCR CONCOURS HELD AT THE BRUMOS COLLECTION
Records are made to be broken, but it’s going to be some time before this one is eclipsed. Florida Crown Region held its “Almost Spring” Concours on a beautiful Saturday at The Brumos Collection and the biggest field ever turned out with 72 Porsches being judged. Special thanks go to the great folks at the collection for hosting us – Brandon Starks, Executive Director; Toni Boudreaux-Godwin, Director of Operations; and Dan Davis, founder of the collection. We were also fortunate to welcome a contingent from the Thoroughbred Region in Ocala/Gainesville.
Hagerty Youth Judging Was a Hit
The Youth Judging at the PCA/FCR Concours went perfectly! We had eight participants between ages of three and 12, according to Cason Vogel, Territory Manager for Hagerty. They all received Hagerty Youth Judging hats, shirts, and scorecards. Even though they were all first-time concours judges, they didn’t hold back on their attention to detail. They judged a 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S Silver Rose (owned by Jeff Thompson), a 2019 Porsche GT3RS in Chalk (owned by Michael Klamm), and a white 1972 Porsche 911 T (owned by Erik Olsen). The judges fell in love with the houndstooth interior on the 911 T and awarded it 1st place. The GT3RS took home 2nd (possibly owing to the fact that they all got to sit in it), and the 944 took 3rd place.
The Results Are In
Due to the number and quality, our two judging teams had a particularly tough time selecting the class winners. A huge thanks goes to judges Bob Barren, Dennis Fallen, Jay Caracoza, Patty Tantillo, Brent Bodiford, Bruce DuFresne, and to FCR Treasurer Ed Lustgarten – the busiest man on the planet that day!
