Legends of Riverside II Road Racing Reunion

The second edition of the Legends of Riverside Film Festival and Gala is almost here, aiming to bring together the people and machines that competed at the legendary road racing track located on the outskirts of Riverside. The event, which is scheduled to take place on March 26-28, is therefore dedicated to the legendary Riverside track.

The special guest to the event is none other than Carroll Shelby, and one of the highlights of the three-day event will be a gala dinner with Shelby himself.

In addition to Carroll Shelby, over 40 other legendary competitors including Bruce Kessler, George Follmer, Howden Ganley, Denise McCluggage, Dan Gurney, John Morton, Scooter Patrick, Davey Jordan, Jerry Grant, Elliott Forbes-Robinson, Bob Bondurant, and Tony Adamowicz are also scheduled to be present at the event.

“Our ratio of guests to racing stars, and other famous racing faces is about 3 to 1,”
organizer Doug Magnon said in a release. “This event isn’t about huge crowds and long distances separating our paying guests and guests of honor. This is an up-close-and-personal pit area experience, not nose-bleed and binoculars seats in some far-off grandstands.”

Moreover, the Riverside event will see a number of special awards presented over the weekend, including the 500cc Club of America’s Harry Morrow Award, the Lee Iacocca Award, and a new award created especially for the Riverside event to commemorate the memory of Peter Bryant and that will recognize past excellence in engineering and dedication to motorsports.
