MotoringExposure and motorsports partner The Jeff Andretti Coaching Group LLC. brought some high-end horsepower with Innovative Vehicle Solutions to the Second Annual 2010 Gold Coast Concours hosted by Martino Auto Concepts to benefit the Diabetes Research Institute.
On a cool autumn day, automotive enthusiasts from around the country came together to support the Diabetes Research Institute and their pursuit for a cure to the chronic disease. The threat of rain did not stop the hundreds of supercars, exotics, and high-performance automobiles from proudly going on display. Thanks to Martino Auto Concepts, the beautiful Glen Cove city square was closed for the special charity event, giving the many participants and sponsors an ideal stage to showcase their rare and exotic automobiles and high-end products. The second annual concours event featured an extensive selection of automobiles from American muscle to screaming Ferraris and Lamborghinis of past and present, vintage racecars, powerful Porsches, elegant Bentleys and Rolls Royces, and performance-tuned sportscars.
In a show that featured classic and modern Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, Maseratis, and vintage racecars, the Jeff Andretti Coaching Group LLC. and Innovative Vehicle Solutions teams were at the center of attention. Jeff Andretti and Kai Goddard of the Jeff Andretti Racing Group LLC. spent the day signing autographs and greeting eager fans. To benefit the Diabetes Research Institute, Jeff Andretti donated one of his historic racing suits that was raffled off. Innovative Vehicle Solutions showcased their HAVOC 9 650-horsepower Camaro sporting a new aerodynamic package, stunning wheels, and a monster LS9 engine with a monstrous roar.
The event hosted by Martino Auto Concepts successfully raised money and awareness for the Diabetes Research Institute. The donations and money raised will go towards a cure for diabetes, the care for those afflicted with the chronic disease, and public education. While the number of participants, sponsors, and spectators in attendance was impressive, it did not surpass the show of support and generosity for the Diabetes Research Institute.
Special thanks to Martino Auto Concepts for organizing the event and the City of Glen Cove, New York for providing an outstanding setting for the Gold Coast Concours.
