In addition to the presence of the American Bugatti Club, examples of the marque are coming from across the U.S. and Europe with the possibility of a record-setting number of the cars at the event. Noted Bugatti authority Hugh Conway, chairman of the United Kingdom’s Bugatti Trust, will be an active participant in the celebration, and will be joined by the Trust’s curator, Angela Hucke.

The 36th Festival will also celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Vintage Sports Car Club of America, the event’s sanctioning body. A special race to commemorate this VSCCA milestone is in the works.
Others who will be at the Labor Day weekend event include John Fitzpatrick, one of the greatest-ever Porsche drivers; former British racer David Hobbs, who will be signing copies of his new autobiography; and VM columnist/racer Burt Levy, author of The Last Open Road, who will sign copies of the latest book in his series. And of course, Vintage Motorsport will be in the midst of the action, too.
