Carlisle Events holds several events each year in Pennsylvania, but its reach has extended south with its Fall Florida AutoFest. The annual events in Carlisle, Pennsylvania are hugely successful, and it is the hope the Florida events reach that same level of success.

Team Shelby is doing its part to help make that happen. For Carlisle Events’ Fall Florida AutoFest, Team Shelby has a few special events within the event to help bring even more excitement to the party. The Fall Florida AutoFest is November 10-13 at the SUN n’ FUN Campus, adjacent to Lakeland Linder Airport in Lakeland, Florida.

The Team Shelby fun starts November 11th with a Poker Run from Daytona Beach, Florida to the event, with photo-ops along the way, and a lunch stop in Mount Dora, Florida. Once Team Shelby participants arrive at the Fall Florida AutoFest, there will be a dinner, live music, and charity auction to benefit the Carroll Shelby Foundation. After the auction, a “Cars Under the Stars” car show will take place that evening.

Team Shelby participants start Saturday the 12th with an off-site breakfast, followed by a grand entrance into the AutoFest. Once at the show, participants will once again be treated to live music and a catered meal, while Sunday brings the weekend to an end starting with a cars and coffee-type car show.

At the Fall Florida AutoFest, Team Shelby will have a 2016 Shelby GT-H Hertz rental on the SUN n’ FUN Campus for everyone to see. Hertz Mustangs from other model years will also be present at the event.

One treat for show goers will be the presence of a 2016 Shelby GT-H Hertz rental car at the event, as well as, versions from 2007, 2006, and 1965 model years. Registration for the Team Shelby festivities starts September 1st, and to learn more about participation pricing, contact Team Shelby’s Larry Beach (teamshelbycentralflorida@gmail.com).
