This year's Southeastern Classic (XXXV), will be special for several reasons:
Registration will start late afternoon Thursday at the Holiday Inn Express check-in location; Hospitality will be nearby!
Friday will include a number of activities and events to be disclosed at a later date.
Our traditional Saturday SEC Car Show will be on the 17th hole of the Port Royal Golf Club, adjacent to the Hilton Head Island Concours d' Elegance, being hosted by the same Port Royal Golf Club.
In addition to our own fine Healey family of cars we will be in the company of some very fine, classic automobiles. We think you will really like it!
Welcome to Southeastern Classic XXXV. It’s hard to believe some of us have been doing this for 35 years! As hosts for this event, the Atlanta Chapter of the Austin Healey Club of America welcomes you to this years’ location – Hilton Head Island, SC!
Please join us for some of our traditional SEC favorite activities and events:
We have also added some unique twists to include:
Your SEC Event registration includes two (2) tickets for both Saturday’s and Sunday’s HHI Motoring Festival events. You will be free to roam the entire field of vehicles on Saturday and again on Sunday, at your leisure. Please check out their website at www.hhiconcours.com.
The Hilton Head Island Concours d’ Elegance & Motoring Festival is a multi-day world-class experience; its two-day format makes it unique to other Concours events.
Sunday, there is an array of 100-200 outstanding cars and motorcycles displayed across the fairways of Port Royal Golf Club's Golf Courses. These vehicles are exceedingly rare, unique and of the highest level of restoration.
The HHI Motoring Festival welcomes you to apply independently for their Sunday Concours d’ Elegance show if you wish to have your car included and judged. They will be selecting 10-12 Healey’s split between the 100’s and 3000’s for this year’s show.
Go to www.healeyclub.org to register on-line. The event is located on the November calendar. You do not have to be a member to register. If you are an AHAC member, login and go to the calendar. If not, you can still register via the Events/Calendar.
If you have any questions please contact Charlie Moshell (firstname.lastname@example.org), Sheron Moshell (email@example.com) or John Miner (Registration) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tentative Schedule and General Information:
Golf Cart shuttles will be available to provide ease of navigation around the HHI Motoring Festival automotive display. Shuttle service will also be available to and from our wonderful host hotel, the Holiday Inn Express Hilton Head Island, at 2 Tanglewood Dr, Hilton Head Island, SC 29928. (843) 842-6662.
As folks arrive on Thursday, we will be hosting Hospitality. Beverages and snacks provided.
Friday is our “FUNday Friday”. We encourage you to take in the sites of the island, the beaches, or even some self-directed driving tours, Burnt Church Distillery being a popular spot. Tech Sessions in the afternoon are always a hit as well. The ladies will have their own tech session this year, a Wine Glass Painting Class. No skills or supplies needed. BYOB is recommended. We will be limited to 40 registrations.
Continuing with “FUNday Friday” will be the Funkhana at the Celebration Park next door to the Holiday Inn Express. All within walking distance. Friday evening dinner is on your own. You can experience the many wonderful restaurants on the island, or you can keep it simple and partake in the delicious food trucks we will have available at the Park as well. Tables and chairs will be set up to accommodate the meal and hospitality.
Saturday morning will be our Southeastern Classic Car Show on the 17th fairway at Port Royal. We are limited to 80 cars, thus only one car will be allowed per registration. Must be registered by October 14th to be eligible to participate in the show.
Saturday evening, we will be having our SEC Awards Banquet. It will be a very casual event since it will be outside on the lawn at Celebration Park, ending the SE Classic with a traditional Low Country Boil. For those who are not into seafood, barbeque will be available as well. Do I dare say, “Hospitality” again? You are welcome to BYOB. Some refreshments will be provided.
Our SEC event is officially over following the Awards Banquet. However, for those who would like to stay another day and enjoy your tickets to the HHI Concours d’ Elegance on Sunday (included in your registration), the Holiday Inn Express is extending our deeply-discounted room rate of $159/night to Sunday evening as well.
