The 2016 Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance was staged April 29-30 at the Pinehurst Resort and Golf Club in North Carolina. The 4th annual event on the fairways of the historic golf resort blended the heritage from three of North Carolina’s traditions — motorsports, golf and military.
“The Pinehurst Concours has emerged as a truly special day and one of the most unique events in the state of North Carolina,” said Pinehurst Concours president Jay Howard. “We have a little something for everyone. But the vintage cars remain the stars, and our field of rare automobiles keeps getting better and better as the reputation of our venue and world-class judging team spreads throughout the collector car hobby.”
Best of Show at the 2016 Pinehurst Concours was awarded to the 1928 Isotta Fraschini 8ASS owned by Peter Boyle of Oil City, Pennsylvania. Boyle, whose car was shown in the Pre-War European Class, also won Best in Show at the inaugural 2013 competition with a 1938 Steyr 220 Glaser Roadster, which returned Saturday with the three previous winners as display cars.
Other notable winners included the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing owned by Karl Kleiderer of Charlotte, North Carolina winning the FIVA Award, while James Strickland of Marietta, Georgia took home the HVA Award with his 1961 Jaguar E-Type Open Two-Seater.
