Praga Racing USA debuts the R1 at The Amelia

Praga travelled to Florida on 2nd and 3rd March to support Praga Racing USA’s first show appearance of 2024 at The Amelia, and meet the Czech company’s road and race car clients at ModaMiami on the same dates in Miami.

The Praga R1 belonging to Shane Anderson, CEO of Praga’s official USA dealer, was in prime position at the entrance to the Amelia Island Concours of Elegance event, making it the first race car to be seen on arrival for the record number of 27,000 car enthusiasts who attended.

Shane Anderson said; “We are really happy with the way the Praga R1 was received at the show. Being at The Amelia is a special occasion in itself, but to be located at the main entrance, for all to see, was super exciting. The R1 looked stunning and really added to the ambience of The Amelia Concours D’Elegance event.”

The Praga R1 joined hundreds of the most impressive vehicles from across the US, including race cars, classic cars and supercars. A 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO was crowned Best in Show, Concours de Sport while a 1947 Delahaye 135MS Narval Cabriolet took home Best in Show, Concours d’Elegance.

Mark Harrison, Praga Cars Sales & Marketing Director, said; “We’re really grateful Hagerty allowed the R1 to be on display and pleased that Shane made the effort to take his car to The Amelia – it’s one of the world’s most respected car events. Praga Racing USA had a very successful year in 2023 which has expanded our customer base in the US, which is perfect timing ahead of officially launching Praga’s first hypercar, the Praga Bohema, in a few weeks. We hope to bring the Bohema to the US for its debut this summer.”

Shane concluded; “Praga Racing USA had a great year in 2023 but we are only just getting started. We’ll be arranging participation in track days across the US for Praga owners to enjoy their R1s at top tracks, as well as participating in competitive racing for more race wins throughout the 2024 season. I encourage anyone who’s interested in joining the exclusive Praga family to get in touch to arrange a test drive with Praga Racing USA.”
