Palm Beach, 27th of January
Rained out... this year's Cavallino Classic in Florid ended like they
began on Thursday during the private track day at the Palm Beach
International Raceway, with torrential rain.
Whereas the Concours on Saturday at the lawn at the Breakers
suffered from various showers this day at the Presidents Country
Club, the famous Mar-a-Lago, saw nothing but rain during most of
the day. After the wet days before the lawn was flooded in parts
when the cars arrived in the morning and after a first try to reach
their destination on the field the surface appeared too wet and
deep to take the load of the cars and as even a light Aston Martin
DB 2 left scars in the grass one could only imagine what a
Bentley Speed Six or a big Packard would have done to the show
field, so the decision was made to keep the cars in the parking
and the driveway.
