My friends at JHE Productions in Charlotte are promoting a Councours d’Elegance at Pinehurst May 3-5.
JHE does all the staging for NASCAR and IndyCar, such as NASCAR’s mobile driver introduction pods wherein each driver essentially walks out of a giant Sprint phone after being introduced by the P/A announcer. They also do a lot of concert staging, such as those crazy situations like the Indy 500 pre-race where a stage (with full 50,000-watt sound & lighting) is set up in 9 minutes, the Red Hot Chili Peppers come out and play one song, and then the whole thing is struck in 4 minutes. Absolute insanity.
Will be interesting to see what sort of modern twist these guys put on the somewhat stodgy world of rich guys with museum-quality cars.
