America’s top endurance racing star brings heightened excitement to this year’s Vintage Auto Film Exhibition presented by MonroneyLabels.com to open Hilton Head Concours on Thursday evening Oct. 31, 2019.
“The driving purpose of the Vintage Auto Film Exhibition is to celebrate the excitement, the history and the culture of the automobile through film,” said event organizer Guy Smith of Popcorn Octane Productions. “Featuring ‘Hurley’ the documentary and having his favorite Porsche 917/10 race car along for the ride this year will be incredible.”
“Hurley,” executive produced by Haywood’s racing protégé Patrick Dempsey (from Grey’s Anatomy fame), chronicles Haywood’s remarkable life, revealing a greater insight into the tightrope walk between his famous racing driver persona and a personal life that remained a mystery.
Award winning “The Lauda Legacy” anchors the short films segment, featuring Niki Lauda’s 1974 Monaco pole-winning Ferrari 312 with three-time Le Mans winner Marco Werner. Making its big-screen premiere is “Phoenix Rising,” a film that follows the unexpected restoration of a significant Porsche Abarth Carrera GTL plus the latest “Why I Drive” from Hagerty.
Positioned as the kick-off for the Hilton Head Concours weekend, this year’s Vintage Auto Film Exhibition held for the first time at the world class Arts Center of Coastal Carolina gives the sophisticated red-carpet vibe sponsor MonroneyLabels.com CEO Ned Nielsen requested. “We’re proud of how this event has grown and honored to continue to be a part of it.”
