At The Concours Club, providing security and privacy to Members is paramount. Millions of dollars have been invested to ensure Members enjoy a completely safe and undisturbed environment. From the grand perimeter wall to the custom security protocol system, no expense has been spared.
The towering concrete barrier wall nestles the 80 acre site and provides the first line of security, ultimate privacy and sound mitigation. Upon arriving to the guardhouse, the distinctive subterranean bollards reinforce security. The facility will be guarded 24/7 by expertly-trained security personnel, provided by one of the nation’s top security providers. The Club will also offer the latest in access control technology by Integrated Security Systems, an industry leader. ISS designed a one-of-a-kind security protocol system specifically for The Concours Club, providing optimal safety to Members.
Upon entering, Members will be surrounded by lush landscaping designed by one of the world’s most renowned planning, landscape architecture, and urban design firms, EDSA. They are the name behind some of the most beautiful resorts in the world including Atlantis Paradise Island in the Bahamas, One&Only Royal Mirage in Dubai, Four Seasons Orlando at Walt Disney, and Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood. Their design captures the spirit and culture of The Concours Club from the moment members enter the facility.

AMENITIES AND FEATURES
IN THE NEWS
The Concours Club was recently featured in the NY Times discussing the breadth of amenities associated with the finest, most exclusive automotive country club in the world. Aimed at offering a country club experience for automotive fans, The Concours Club features include a state-of-the-art members lounge and incredible dining facility operated by popular Miami Chef, Brad Kilgore.
Founding Member, Helio Castroneves, described the intricacies associated with building a world-class driving course that will impress even the most seasoned drivers.
Founder, Neil Gehani, also notes the importance of establishing an automotive club in warm-weather climate, something that had never been done before.
The 2020 running of the Rolex Daytona 24 made up for last year’s early ending. Unprecedented stretches of green flag racing allowed the leaders to set a new distance record covering 2,965 miles. The full course yellow waved only six times in 24 hours, creating a breakneck pace that remarkably produced only five retirements.
Wayne Taylor Racing captured overall victory for the second year in a row in the DPi class, while South Florida based DragonSpeed USA took honors in LMP2. BMW’s M8 filled the top step in the GTLM class, and Paul Miller Racing took victory in the ultra-competitive GTD class giving Lamborghini its third win in a row.
The Concours Club’s founding member Helio Castroneves was piloting Penske’s Acura ARX-05 at the front end of the field when he was taken out by a Mazda prototype who was penalized for his indiscretions. Despite requiring 40 minutes of repairs the Acura fought back to an 8th place finish.
For the 2nd consecutive year, The Concours Club was an official Partner of the Annual Miami Concours which took place on Sunday, February 16th in the iconic Miami Design District. Miami Concours featured the most significant post-war automobiles ever produced and honored automotive entrepreneur, Jim Glickenhaus and Italian design firm, Pininfarina.
The event launched Saturday night with a private dinner catered by Brad Kilgore and featuring the exclusive unveiling of the DeTomaso P72. On Sunday, the Miami Concours drew hundreds of visitors. The Concours Club hosted The Collector's VIP lounge where refreshments and bites were served. The Concours Club presented the Competition Cars category featuring a combination of the latest technology and iconic classics.
We congratulate the following award-winning Founding Members:
- Hypercars: 2020 Apollo IE (pictured) • Barry Skolnick
- 1980s: 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC AMG • Peralta Family
- European Sport & GT: 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL • Leo Schigiel

MEMBERS IN CONCOURS
Leo and Lisa Schigiel's stunning 1972 Dino 246 GT 03326m was awarded "La Coppa per Sei Cilindri", the award for the finest 6-cylinder Ferrari. Ferrari produced and sold under the Dino marque between 1967 and 1974 with both the 206 GT and 246 GT models. The Dino 246 GT was capable of top speeds of more than 140 mph, outperforming other sports cars of the same time period.
Congratulations to Tom and Tommy Cabrerizio for being awarded "La Coppa per Otto Cilindri", the award for the finest 8-cylinder Ferrari. The Cabrerizio's Ferrari 2008 430 GTC 2604 was the award-winning vehicle at the Cavallino Classic. The 430 GTC was developed by the Ferrari Corse Clienti department in an attempt to dominate the racing scene. Derived from the excellent F430 road-conquering Berlinetta, the 430 GTC dominated its category since its debut.
PALM BEACH CAVALLINO CLASSIC
Jim Amine’s beautiful F50 was featured as part of the Palm Beach Cavallino Classic's "25 Years of the F50" celebration. The Ferrari F50 is a mid-engine range-topping sports car manufactured between 1995–1997. Powered by a 4.7 L naturally-aspirated Tipo F130B 60-valve V12 engine that was developed from 1990 Ferrari 641 Formula One car. The vehicle's design is an evolution of the 1989 Ferrari Mythos concept car.
In late January, The Concours Club team was in attendance at the 29th Palm Beach Cavallino Classic. The annual Ferrari enthusiasts' event is widely regarded as the most important gathering of Ferraris in the U.S. Hosted by iconic Ferrari journal, Cavallino Magazine, the event celebrates the beauty and art of the Ferrari brand, from its inception to the present day. The event is known for attracting some of the rarest and most prized Ferraris in existence, including the pictured 1963 250 GTO, the most valued Ferrari of all time. Some of our Members participated in the event. We are looking forward to seeing these prized automobiles at The Concours Club!
