.: The 2012 Event
EURO Auto Festival – October 19-21, 2012
EURO Auto Festival 2012
2012 is here and the EURO board has assembled another great event for the 17th annual all European car show. Plan your trip to Greenville-Spartanburg with the surrounding area in mind and enjoy our Friday tours, technical sessions, car detailing forum and dinner with your favorite moustache guy,
Our host hotel for the weekend is the spacious Embassy Suites at Verdae where every room is a suite, secure parking area for EURO guests, beautiful atrium for relaxing and golfing at the challenging Preserve course. BMW Manufacturing and the Zentrum will again host the car show and driving events at their performance center. Even with BMW’s sales success and seven day work week, EURO Auto Festival has arranged for use of the spacious parking area near the Zentrum to park all of our guests again, no shuttles needed this year!
Our EURO volunteer team is excited to have for the first time, Mercedes Benz as the featured marque. Over the past few years the number of premium German cars has grown beyond the classic sedans, SL’s and cabriolets to the point in 2011we featured Mark Richey’s 1954 Mercedes Benz 300 SL gull wing, the 10th unit manufactured!
Changes are being planned to expand the award stage at the Zentrum to provide a better photo opportunity and smoother traffic flow. Speed TV will be on hand to capture some of the 400 cars on display. Assigned parking spaces were a great success in 2011 and will be available for pre-registered attendees, register early so you don’t miss out.
A broader lineup of apparel is available from our founding car club, Foothills British Car Club (FBCC). Get your new EURO logo wear and help FBCC raise funds for Red Cross local disaster relief and club activities. Sign up in the registration section.
Send in your questions so that we can address them for everyone in the FAQ section of the website.

Our honorary guest speaker is the famous (at least to car guys-gals too) “My Classic Car” host, Dennis Gage and his Speed TV camera crew. The crew is not as famous as Dennis, but they may make you and your wheels famous when appearing in next season’s special about EURO Auto Festival.
