Fountain Hills, Arizona, US played host to the ninth Concours in the Hills – the most popular staging yet – with the Ferrari 275GTB of George Getz winning Best in Show from more than 1200 cars on display.
More than 50,000 spectators came to the free-to-attend event on on February 4, 2023, with donations amounting to around $500,000 going towards the Phoenix Children’s Hospital. The show was opened with four Navy Seals from the elite Leap Frogs parachute team jumping out of a hovering helicopter, which was followed by seven military-attack helicopters dropping by to say hello; there was also a flypast of World War Two warbirds. The date for 2024 has already been announced – February 3 – and more details are available here.
