It will be a sprawling display of horsepower as 200 rare and classic cars make their way to the annual The Bridge car show, which is held in Bridgehampton Saturday, September 14. The invite-only event pays tribute to the heritage of the historic racetrack grounds it sits on. Four years in, The Bridge has quickly become one of the most anticipated automotive events in the U.S.Robert Rubin, who has owned the Bridgehampton Race Circuit since 1981, and founded The Bridge Golf Club in 2002, said, “This year, the number of cars has increased to the point where the entire 18th fairway is covered, all the way down to the art fair. The transition will be seamless.” Rubin, Shamin Abas, and Jeffrey Einhorn produce the event each year.It also coincides with the “September Art Show” curated by Marlborough Contemporary’s Max Levai. The group exhibit will be presented on the final fairway and aims to merge the art and automotive worlds in a creative way. It will be comprised of leading modern and historical works, which will be displayed within Lars Fisk designed custom-built pavilions. Visitors can also check out an array of outdoor sculptures and large paintings.“The art show is breaking new ground with its concept of a curated rather than gallery-centric presentation of works, including a more ambitious outdoor sculpture component,” Rubin said. “And the chemistry of the crowd is fantastic. For many Bridge members, the event is the high point of the club’s social season — a bonus after Labor Day, when everything’s supposed to have wound down.”Some of the rare cars on view include a 1909 Isotta Fraschini Tipo FENC, 1948 Tucker, 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing, 1963 Aston Martin DB4, 1939 Jaguar MkV Drophead Coupé, 1964 Alpine M64, 1965 Maserati, and many more. Some of these cars will also be on display the following day at the Cars & Coffee event hosted at The Bridgehampton Historical Society, which is open to the public.Additional highlights include Aston Martin debuting the new Valhalla, its third mid-engine hypercar set to be featured in the next James Bond film. Bugatti of the Americas will celebrate its 110-year anniversary with a retrospective display. And it’s not just cars included. Richard Mille, the presenting sponsor, will showcase the brand’s newest timepieces for both men and women. Just days after completing the last dive of five to the bottom of each of the world’s oceans, which has never been done, Triton Submarines LLC will be onsite. On the aviation side, Airbus Helicopters Inc. will showcase, and NetJets Inc. will have a full-sized mock-up of the new Cessna Citation Longitude.firstname.lastname@example.org Share

In an effort to protect our customers from potential fraudulent attempts, we took immediate action to block the affected cards and re-issue new cards,” the statement indicates.“While none of our customers have reported any fraudulent activity on their accounts, we have to take every precaution to mitigate the issue and protect our customers. We understand that not being able to use your cards is inconvenient; however, we felt that this was the best course of action to provide complete protection to you, our customers,” it continues. The process of re-issuing of cards began on Saturday, February 23rd and will continue throughout this week. The Bank anticipates that all replacement cards will be available by Monday, March 4th. “While NBD is in no way associated with the Caribbean based card processing facility where the compromise took place, we apologize to all our cardholders and merchants for this situation,” the statement notes further.
