Annual Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival 2012 – Lakeland FL

The annual Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival takes place around Lake Mirror and in the Downtown Lakeland Florida area on October 19 – 21, 2012. Best of all – it’s free!

Annual Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival – Lakeland FL

In it’s 13th year, this is one of my favorite events drawing a crowd of about 35,000 people wandering around Lake Mirror viewing a field of about 600 vehicles. It is considered as one of the best shows in the Southeast. There is no doubt in my mind that visiting Lake Mirror Classic will mesmerize car enthusiasts around Lakeland and the country.

The honorary chairman for this year’s Festival is British race car driver Brian Redman, he is known for his Professional-racing career that includes three-time winner of the 24 hours of Daytona and two-time winner of the 12 hours of Sebring. During his career he was a factory team driver for Ford, Ferrari, Porsche, Cooper, Williams, Chaparral, Jaguar, Chevron, and McLaren. He has been inducted into multiple Hall of Fames to include the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America.
