Our past Waveny Park event was amazing thanks to all of you! As of today we will not be holding any additional 2014 C&C gatherings, but always watch the emails, Facebook, Twitter & our website for a quick popup if conditions allow.

Please feel free to visit Doug at Zumbach’s for a cup of coffee, Todd in Ridgefield at 109 Cheese and Wine for some foodie goodies & Peter on the radio at 95.9 The Fox for some great driving music and conversation. The 3 of us are around and love to talk cars & bikes all year long.

We will be announcing the 2015 schedule as soon as it is available!

A big thank you to the town of New Canaan, the New Canaan PD, Chamber of commerce & all that helped make the 2014 season a great one.

Stay safe, enjoy all of the amazing vehicles and stay in touch.

C&C Visits Lime Rock Park

Thank you to all that made the trek to Lime Rock Park this past weekend. We had an amazing turnout (almost 300 cars!) on such a beautiful day. The sounds of auto racing in the background only added to this special day. Doug got a little track time with the Metro PCA group and The Lime Rock Driver’s Club had some fun too.

C&C at Lime Rock ParkDoug, Peter and I will continue to figure out and work with the powers that be in New Canaan feeling confident that we can reach an agreement that satisfies all parties. The September 7th event will be in New Canaan as planned and we look forward to seeing everyone then. Until September, enjoy your summer and get out and drive. There may even be a pop up event this summer so keep an eye open for updates on Facebook, Twitter, an email and right here on our website. Remember, you can always come to Zumbach’s and see Doug for a great cup of coffee, visit Todd at 109 Cheese and Wine for a picnic lunch and listen to Peter on the radio at 959 The Fox.

Thank you all for your continued support,
Doug, Peter & Todd

Schedule Change

Important C&C Updates June 15th gathering has been moved to June 14th and to Lime Rock Park “B Paddock”

Dear C&C’ers,

Due to the inability to acquire a town permit for the up-coming Father’s Day event we are forced to move the June date and the June C&C venue. We will continue our talks with the town of New Canaan, but as of now our next New Canaan event will be
September 7th.

We know how disappointing this is and will continue to seek a solution. To continue the June gathering we have arranged a great morning at the track! We will still have great cars, great people and maybe even a few hot laps with some pro drivers for a lucky few….and the concession stand will be open and pouring Zumbach’s coffee!

The Lime Rock Park C&C will start at 10am and run all day, on Saturday June 14. There will be no entrance/admission charge to Lime Rock Park for C&C attendees.

Your friends,
Peter, Todd & Doug
