Classic car connoisseurs will converge on Hilton Head Island next weekend for the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance. The multi-day festival, which includes the Savannah Speed Classic (Oct. 28-30), Motoring Midway (Nov. 5-6) and Car Club Jamboree (Nov. 5), will culminate on Sunday, Nov. 6, 2011 with more than 150 vintage automobiles competing for “Best of Show” in the Concours d’Elegance.

ResortQuest is currently promoting their Featured Homes for Fall Special, offering discounted rates—currently up to 20 percent off—on select private homes. Also coinciding with the Motoring Festival dates, Island-Wide Golf Packages on Hilton Head are available, with a four-day, three-night, two-round package starting at $335 per golfer based on quad-occupancy in a two-bedroom villa. Offers are subject to availability, and some restrictions may apply.

ResortQuest Hilton Head professionally manages more than 300 premier vacation rentals on Hilton Head Island with a range of property types, from oceanfront private homes to villas with golf course views, conveniently located near the Concours d’Elegance venue at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn. ResortQuest’s professionally managed vacation rentals are located across the Island, including properties within Sea Pines Resort, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, Forest Beach, Shipyard Plantation, and the communities of Singleton Beach and Burkes Beach.

“Whatever you might consider 'Best in Show' for your vacation accommodations, ResortQuest is certain to have a vacation rental to match your criteria,” said Jessica Gardo, marketing manager, ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, Hilton Head. “When it comes to location, we offer beachfront homes and villas on the golf course with resort amenities that include swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centers and tennis courts.

The Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance, which was recognized as one of the Southeast Tourism Society’s “Top 20 Events” for Fall 2011, will kick off on Friday, Oct. 28 through Sunday, Nov. 6, with three of the four signature events taking place at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn. The fourth event, the Savannah Speed Classic, will be held at the Grand Prize of America Track on Hutchinson Island, Ga.

Dennis Gage, the mustachioed host of the SPEED Channel’s “My Classic Car” television series and honorary chairman of this year’s Motoring Festival, will be in attendance on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 5 and 6, for the events at the Museum. The Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn is located near the north end of Hilton Head Island at 70 Honey Horn Drive, off Business 278 / William Hilton Pkwy.

The annual Motoring Festival is produced by Hilton Head Island Concours d'Elegance, Inc., a non-profit organization that seeks to entertain and educate the community with a unique, multi-day Lowcountry motoring experience while supporting youth programs. Proceeds from the festival benefit Driving Young America (DYA), a charitable fund established by the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival and Concours d’Elegance in 2007. DYA awards scholarships to young people seeking an education to pursue a career in the automotive industry including design, engineering, performance, safety, service/repair, restoration or historical preservation.
