Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance "Autoists" to
1909 Tampa to Jacksonville
Endurance Run Route
Celebrating the 110th anniversary of the first running of "The Great Endurance Run",
classic pre-1910 automobiles will run from Tampa to Kissimmee to Downtown Jacksonville
and then on to participate in the Heacock Classic Cars & Coffee at the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance on March 9, 2019.
Limited to 16 cars preferably 1909 and older, as period correct. If there are not enough pre 1909 cars involved, we will open it up to any vehicle up to the 1920's.
A documentary film will be made of this event, with a major celebrity voice over,
so those involved will be able to not only participate in a
memorable re-creation, they will have their journey
documented for all to enjoy for years to come!
While the first race was held to promote road building in the
Sunshine State, our version has two aims. First, to raise awareness
of the inaugural Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance, to be held at
Curtis Hixon Park in downtown Tampa on Saturday,
April 13, 2019. Second, both the "Great Endurance Run"
and the Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance will benefit
the work of the Shriners Hospital in Tampa.
Although the event is certainly about fun and classic automobiles, the real purpose is to help the Shriners Hospital with the great work they do. This is a total volunteer effort. No one is making any money on it, all the proceeds benefit the Shriners and their young patients.
The original event was sponsored by the Tampa Daily Times, the Tampa Automobile Club and Coca Cola.
The Participants of The Gasparilla Great Endurance Run 1909-2019 will be asked to display their cars in Curtis Hixon Park on Friday, April 12, 2019, during the Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance "Cars in the Park" Cocktail Party and FUNraiser Auction.
Ray Kriegbaum, Group Therapy Rallye Team, produces automobile "Fun Rallies" and road tours for charitable organizations,
clubs and company promotions.
Ray is also the official Photographer for the Gasparilla Concours d'Elegance!
