Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca’s official artist Bill Patterson gets to work on creating the award for Best in Show during the Concours on Pit Lane. The Concours attracted a large number of fans who were able to view many of the race cars in one location, while judges evaluated the cars.
It was an ideal ending to a very busy day, that concluded with an evening of live music and a special screening of the film classic, Le Mans in the Porsche Park in the Paddock.
