12th Cavallino Classic

Griot's Garage was once again invited to be the exclusive car care sponsor of the twelfth annual Cavallino Classic, the most prestigious Ferrari event in the country. It brings together hundreds of Ferraris and features several days of historic racing, rallies and a concours event. I had the privilege of presenting The Preservation Cup for the Ferrari best representing fine original preserved condition.

Griot's Garage was also the proud co-sponsor of the Coppa Bella Macchina competition, held between a select group of Ferraris. "Bella Macchina" translates loosely to the "beautiful machine". The object of the Coppa competition is two-fold. The first is to determine that all the equipment on the Ferrari is functional, and that it operates as originally designed and manufactured. The second is to determine the level of originality, authenticity, correctness, quality of care, and overall condition of the Ferrari. The intensity of this competition is unbelievable and to win is a great achievement.

Here are photos of just a few of the many great cars (and motorcycles) we enjoyed.
Palm Beach Sportscar Classic

Griot's Garage participated in the Palm Beach Sportscar Classic presented by Jaguar Select Edition, at Moroso Motorsports Park in Florida. Working with Donovan Motorcar Services, Jaguar has created the Jaguar Select Edition Racing Team, fielding two restored 400-horsepower vintage Jaguar E-Type racecars. In addition to the Palm Beach event, the team has participated in a dozen other key historic races throughout the 2003 season. Guests at Moroso were also treated to performance test drives in Jaguar XJs, and X-Types. Jaguar distributed Griot's Garage car care products to all participants and used them to care for the entire fleet, including Select Edition certified pre-owned vehicles. What better way to preserve your pre-owned Jaguar than with the finest car care products available!
