Bill Warner has been involved in motor sports since childhood, from a teenage “go-fer” for race teams to a full fledged racer himself, most recently in vintage sports car events. He is an award-winning writer and photographer whose work has graced the pages of publications all over the world, among them,
Road & Track, Automobile Year and AutoWeek.
In 1996, Bill founded The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in Florida, one of America’s most prestigious classic car events. The Concours benefits Community Hospice and in the eight years the show has been in existence, over $1.2 million has been raised for the care of terminally ill children and adults.
Bill’s company, Race/Torations, restores collectible cars, specializing in racecars. Race/Torations’ award winning restorations include the Ex-Denny Hulme Brabham BT-8, a Shelby King Cobra, a Lotus 11, an Elva Mk5, a 1954 Corvette, the ex-Bob Tullis/Paul Newman Group 44 Triumph TR-6 and a 1953 Oldsmobile Fiesta, which is now a part of General Motors’ Heritage Collection.
In 1999, Bill found and purchased the Ford Model 40 Special Speedster, a special made for Edsel Ford. Missing for over 38 years, the Special Speedster is considered one of the most significant finds of the 1990’s and is among the most prized of his own eclectic car collection.
In addition to many awards for his charity work, Bill Warner was named Meguiar’s Collector Car Hobbiest of the Year in 2002.
