Former auto racing champions turned live-streaming co-hosts Tommy Kendall and Justin Bell, along with Emmy Award-winning executive producer Jason Jacobson, will return to the Audrain Newport Concours & Motor Week from September 30th through October 3rd. They’ll be on-site to capture the event’s four-day celebration of history, luxury and sport.
The trio are no strangers to the Audrain Newport Concours & Motor Week. In 2019, they produced a highly acclaimed three-day, 12-hour Livestream from each of the events that became a new standard in the industry. Additionally, in partnership with the Audrain Foundation, they produced the highly regarded one hour and 18 minute “Best in Class: The Making of a Concours d’Elegance,” documenting the inaugural event and capturing the essence of what it means to be a car enthusiast.
For 2021, the emphasis will be on creating memorable content from Motor Week, so Torque Show hosts Justin Bell and Tommy Kendall will be on hand for the scenic Audrain Tour d’Elegance, which covers 60 miles from Narragansett through Jamestown and onto Aquidneck Island, stops at Fort Adams for cars and coffee and concludes on beautiful Bellevue Ave for a public display of the cars in front of the International Tennis Hall of Fame and the Audrain Automobile Museum.
They will also be capturing The Gathering, an exclusive lawn party at the iconic Rough Point, the former home of heiress Doris Duke. Finally, they’ll also be broadcasting from the crown jewel of the four-day celebration, Sunday’s Concours d’Elegance. In addition, Torque will be producing content for Audrain to use in both social and online marketing efforts.
“With their enthusiasm and talent, it’s great to welcome Tommy, Justin and Jason back to Newport for our second event. They are sure to bring out the best moments of the people, cars and venues that make this so special. I can’t wait to see what they do!” said Audrain Group CEO Donald Osborne.
“We fell in love with Newport back in 2019 and feel a real connection to the vision and goals of the Audrain Foundation. We set the bar high with the Livestream and our documentary back in 2019 and are looking forward to once again capturing the incredible cars and documenting their history passed on by their caretakers,” said Justin Bell, co-founder and host of the Torque Show.
