Supercharged with a radical rush of ’80s nostalgia, the fifth annual Grand Motoring Film Festival drops the green flag on the Hilton Head Concours weekend Thursday, November 4th. The throwback thrills on hand will include short films that pay homage to the synth-driven day-glo flair that made the 1980s so bodacious. Static displays will spotlight the cars of the era that became legends like the Testarossa, Countach, Pantera, 911 Turbo, and MX5!
Taking center stage during this night of retro elegance will be “The Secret Race Across America” celebrating the Cannonball run, the famous (or perhaps infamous) transcontinental race that inspired some of the era’s most iconic automotive movies.
Guests can get up close look at the cars, dine on heavy hors d’ oeuvres and cocktails, enjoy red carpet extravagance and try their hand at an update of the pulse pounding racing games that lit up arcades during the ‘80s. It’s an unforgettable night that puts a throwback spin on the automotive film experience that has become a cherished island event.
Doors open at 5PM for the red-carpet reception and automotive exhibits, program begins at 6:45PM.
