Kiawah Island Motoring Retreat

April 15, 2016 - April 17, 2016

Kiawah Island Motoring Retreat Banner

Collectors and enthusiasts are invited to enjoy spring in the Low country, as the 2016 Kiawah Island Motoring Retreat (KIMR) rolls onto Kiawah Island April 15-17, 2016. Located at the entrance to the famed Ocean Course, this celebration of outstanding automobiles features an entire weekend of events.

The highlight is the Sunday judged Concours featuring world-class domestic and foreign classic and antique automobiles. Executive Director of the Concours is Paul Ianuario, Chief Judge is Dave Olimpi, and Ken Gross is serving as Honorary Chair. All of these folks are well known in collector circles for their scope and breadth of experience as judges at major events, authors and museum curators.

More than one hundred unique and rare Concours cars will compete for the Best of Show trophy and other awards on Sunday, April 17. Collectors are encouraged to submit entries at www.kiawahconcours.com. There is no application fee, but all entries are subject to a selection process.

Co-Chairs of the KIMR, Island residents Bruce Stemerman and John Wilson note that “the KIMR is destined to become one of the East Coast’s most exclusive Concours events. We hope you share our vision and will participate in the 2016 Kiawah Island Motoring Retreat”

Also on tap: seminars led by respected experts, a motoring tour through South Carolina’s coastal Low country, and special dinners exposing attendees to famed lowcountry cuisine and more.

Celebrated automotive artist Barry Rowe, artist of several Pebble Beach posters will create original artwork for the commemorative event poster.

Kiawah Island is a premier resort destination (named the #1 Island in the U.S. and #2 in the World in 2014 by Conde Nast Traveler), located just a short distance from historic downtown Charleston (named #1 City in the U.S. by both Conde’ Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure). It provides a unique and beautiful location for a major automotive event. Special travel packages will be announced in coming months, providing KIMR attendees unique “play and stay” opportunities.

KIMR is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and net proceeds will benefit three worthwhile local charities: Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic, Charleston Area Therapeutic Riding Program at Brickhouse Equestrian Center and the Kiawah Conservancy.
