First Annual Carroll Shelby Tribute and Car Show Announced
Exactly one year after his passing, Caroll Shelby, who created a plethora of famous cars including as the Shelby Cobra, the Shelby Mustang GT, the Daytona Coupe and the Ford GT40, will be celebrated through a one day event that will take place at the Carroll Shelby Foundation Headquarters in California.
The commemoration, which requires no admission fee, will feature some of the rarest Shelby cars from the past five decades, an awards ceremony and a panel discussion led by Rick Titus and a few special guests. Throughout the day, exclusive Shelby Legacy Collection items will be for sale, with proceeds benefiting the Carroll Shelby Foundation, as well as an array of Shelby branded apparel items.
“Carroll Shelby changed the course of history and touched millions of lives through his racing, his companies and his charity,” said Randy Richards, LASAAC president. “He challenged us to honor his legacy by continuing his work. This annual event will be a celebration for everyone who shares Carroll’s passion for performance and pursuit of excellence, while also supporting causes he truly believed in.”
Visitors can make $10 donations to the Carroll Shelby Foundation.
