A Special Evening with David Hobbs & Friends Auction Preview

Join us at the Hall of Springs in the Saratoga Spa State Park for a special evening with David Hobbs and Friends.

David will join us along with friends for a cocktail reception and dinner - sharing anecdotes in his unique and delightful style. This is a once in a lifetime evening as the Saratoga Automobile Museum will reunite David with the 1969 Gulf Mirage M2 BRM.

The evening begins at 6 p.m. and will feature a cocktail reception, dinner and an evening of great stories from these guests of honor:

David Hobbs: David’s racing career spanned 30 years at all levels including Indy cars, IMSA, NASCAR, Can-Am and Formula One. Hobbs has provided commentary for Formula One and GP2 races, working with CBS, NBCSN, and ESPN over the years. Some of the kids may know him from the Disney Pixar © animation Cars 2.

Bob Varsha: Bob has long been known as the American voice of Formula 1. He has covered virtually every type of motorized competition in the world, on both two wheels and four, plus collector car auctions, historical retrospectives, vintage racing, the all-electric Formula E Championship, as well as host for the world’s premiere classic car showcase, the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance.

Judy Stropus: Judy is a driver, racer, author, professional timer/scorer, and award winning public relations expert. She’s worked with top teams including Penske Racing, Brumos Racing, Bud Moore Racing, and Al Holbert’s Porsche IndyCar Team, just to name a few. Judy competed in the notorious Cannonball Baker Sea-to-Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash in 1972 with actress Adrienne Barbeau playing her character loosely based on Judy in the movie, “Cannonball Run”.
