General admission tickets and VIP packages are now on sale for the inaugural Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance, a one-of-a-kind showcase competition of vintage and rare automobiles to be displayed at the famed Pinehurst Resort from May 3-5, 2013.
Those interested in purchasing tickets for the Sunday, May 5 competition at an introductory price of $40 each can log on to www.pinehurstconcours.com and order online starting at 10 a.m. Feb. 22.

“Tickets going on sale create an excitement level that this spectacular spectator event is right around the corner, and those interested in Spring entertainment values and being a part of history can now begin planning on attending,” said Jay Howard, executive director of the Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance.
The first-ever Concours show competition at Pinehurst Resort will feature a staging of 118 prestigious cars, some valued at more than $2 million, in celebration of the 118-year-old resort. Concours competitions have been held at Pebble Beach along the Pacific Ocean more than a half century and annually at Amelia Island in Florida.
Individual tickets increase to $50 from May 1-5, and can be purchased at two entry points to the show field at Pinehurst Resort on the day of the event. Teenagers will receive $10 off individual tickets the day of the event and kids 12 under are free with a paying adult.
