The end of May celebration of Memorial Day signals the unofficial start of Summer in the States, and that means tons of local car meets, shows, concours and drives. Some of the biggies in June include the Greenwich Concours d'Elegance and Orphan Car Show, and the 46th Annual LA Roadsters Show, Dana Point, Huntington Beach, Rodeo Drive and Pismo Beach Concurs in Southern California.
Smaller, but no less important events around the country and around the globe include AutoMat's 53rd Anniversary Car Show, Friends of Steve McQueen Car Show, 14th Annual CycleFest, Red Mill British Car Day, Westbury Gardens AACA Automobile Event, Viking Classic Auto Show 2010, The Drive-In, 15th Annual San Clemente Car Show, British Motorcar Gathering, Classy Chassis Concours d'Elegance, Concours de Nice, Citroën Rendezvous, 18th Annual Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Festival, East Coast Annual Ferrari Meet, SoCal Euro CARnival 2010, and the weekly CruzinPort meet and Friday Night Classic Car Cruise Night out east.
Racing fans will be busy with the Grand Prix of Canada and Europe in Formula 1. NASCAR visits Pocono, Michigan, Sonoma and Loudon before gearing up for a return to Daytona in early July. Fresh from its namesake Indy 500, IndyCar heads to Texas and Iowa. The ALMS guys and gals have the month off as their European counterparts partake in 24 hours of grueling action at the series' signature track – Le Mans. No WRC races either in June, but Rally America fans can catch the Susquehannock Trail Rally. Grand-Am holds the Sahlen's Six Hours of the Glen in June. The NHRA circus is busy every single weekend with races in Chicago, Bristol and Norwalk, Ohio bracketing the SuperNationals in Englishtown, NJ.
Other racing action in June includes vintage racing at the Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival and the 40th Annual Antique Nationals vintage drag racing festival. LeMons heads to Dallas and Summit Point too, while a new season of Pinks All Out launches this month as well.
June auctions include RM sales of The Pate Collection and the Classic Muscle and Modern Performance sale. Bonham's hosts the Collector's Motorcars and Memorabilia and Barrett-Jackson makes its first stop in Orange County, California.
