Wheels, Wine… and a Brand New Bentley

Dimmitt Automotive and Festivals of Speed sponsored two glamorous events in November 2019 for fans of fine automobiles — in particular, the beautiful new Bentley Flying Spur. A crowd of roughly 250 car enthusiasts turned out for the unveiling at Dimmitt’s Bentley Tampa Bay dealership in Pinellas Park on Nov. 23, during which multiple orders were placed for the new model. The night before, the Flying Spur attracted attention at Festivals of Speed’s annual Wheels, Watches, Whiskey & Wine bash at The Studio, Dimmitt’s elegant Sarasota dealership. Wine-tasting winners were awarded a cupcake bouquet from Luscious Bouquet and a crystal vase from Festivals of Speed. Some notable guests were Hans-Gunter Vosseler; Tom and Roslyn Puderbaugh; Bentley brand manager Todd VanHerwynen; Pete Leite of Hichens, Harrison & Co., a main sponsor; Lori Crawford of Remax Luxury Realtors; and John Franz of Franz Wealth Management, the presenting sponsor of the Sarasota event. Toojay’s Deli catered, and other luxury vendors included Da Sesto Italiano Ristorante e Vino, Fast Lane Travel, Dracula’s Legacy Wine Bar and Bistro, Buzzpop Cocktails, International Diamond Center, and, of course, duPont REGISTRY Tampa Bay.
