Briggs Cunningham gathering

A major highlight of this year’s Sunday in the Park was the presence of nearly half of the street Cunninghams built. Eleven C3s (including two cabriolets), plus three race cars, were on the property. It was the largest gathering ever of Cunninghams in one place at one time.

Chuck Schoendorf’s C3 Coupe (s/n 5214) won the “Briggs’ Babies” class, while the C3 Coupe (s/n 5209) owned by Leslie Lockard was the Cunningham chosen by Briggs’ daughter herself – Lucie McKinney – for her special award.

Then Lucie was awarded Classic & Sports Car Magazine’s “Editor’s Choice” trophy for her own C3 Coupe (s/n 5223), which she’s owned since new.

Yet another Cunningham-related car won the “Road & Track Magazine Car We’d Most Like to Drive” award: the 1960 Chevy Corvette that won its class (GT 5.0) at Le Mans, driven by John Fitch and Bob Grossman, the car run by Cunningham’s race team.
