On The Blog: Jay Leno, Chopard & Drive Time at The Marconi | OC Event Venue – event recap and staff favorite photos!

Naturally, everyone at The Marconi was ecstatic when Chopard began planning its product/book launch for its new “Classic Racing” watch line. Ya know, racing and the Marconi Automotive Museum go quite well together. 

Founder Dick Marconi raced in the Vintage Circuit and drove in Long Beach’s Grand Prix, and CEO Bo Marconi was the first women to race in the North American 348 challenge! 

Then, word came around that comedian and car enthusiast Jay Leno would be attending as their celebrity guest. How much ironically majestic could it get? 

Here is a recap of the event through favorite photos chosen by staff:
