Concours participants, their guests, and sponsors gather for the Tour d’Elegance, considered by many to be the heart and soul of the weekend; where old friends are reunited and new friendships are made. It's a time when participants can workout their cars in a social, relaxed environment.

The day starts with participants arriving for a gourmet breakfast in Hannibal Square, Winter Park. Over 100 Vehicles are expected to participate in this year’s tour, everything from vintage Ferraris to contemporary Audis. Once Breakfast is complete, it's time to enjoy the open road!

Escorted by the Winter Park Police, participants will follow a pre-determined route, designed by the local Porsche Club, ending with a fabulous lunch at an undisclosed location. It promises to be unique and exciting!
