As Audrain Newport Concours & Motor Week comes into full swing, we are excited for the annual Audrain Tour d’Elegance, happening on Saturday, October 2nd!
The Tour is a chance for Concours d’Elegance entrants to take a scenic road trip through beautiful Rhode Island, and experience the beauty of the state from the comfort of their own vehicles.
The Tour begins bright and early at 6:30 AM, at Scarborough State Beach in Narragansett, Rhode Island, and takes a beautiful scenic tour through Narragansett, Jamestown, Newport and Middletown.
