Famed Formula One racing car driver Sir Stirling Moss led the way, as a diverse pack of three dozen iconic race cars blasted their way around Arawak Cay for three ceremonial laps to mark the opening of the event.

From legendary Detroit models, such as the 1965 Corvette Stingray and 1992 Dodge Viper V10, to elegant classics such as the legendary Porsche 911 and the gorgeous, handmade 1954 Jaguar XK140 Roadster, there were plenty of beautiful racing machines to admire.
