Automotive Art in Motion
The Friday GCDE Tour d'Elegance features Concours entrants seeking to prove their road-worthiness and add important extra points (one for starting, one for completing) to their Judging Card on Concours Saturday.
The starting point is at Old Wheel Restorations, 12820 Gibson Lane, Odessa, FL 33556, just 15 minutes away from the event showgrounds.
Those participating on the Tour d’Elegance will enjoy a scenic route through rural Odessa, historic Safety Harbor, and Oldsmar (yes, founded by R.E. Olds himself!) Lunch will be in beautiful waterfront Philippe Park. The entire route is approx. 35 miles roundtrip.
Those of you who want to cheer them on, and get some great photographs and video, should mark their spot in front of the shops along Main Street in Safety Harbor, Fl. There are some great food and beverages spots on Main St., so come tor lunch, and see the procession at approximately 2pm. This is the only area open to the public for viewing these great vehicles in motion. All other stops are reserved for the Concours vehicles and owners only.
Participants will return to the starting point at approximately 3-4:00pm in time for the 5:00pm move-in start time at the Steinbrenner High School Truck & Trailer Parking.
This tour is completely free to our Concours participants, lunch included!
