CARROLL SHELBY TRIBUTE celebration to go GLOBAL
Webcast and “Rev Your Shelby” Salute To Reach Shelby Admirers Worldwide

Team Shelby – Shelby American, Inc., a division of Carroll Shelby International, and the Carroll Shelby Foundation, have announced that the Carroll Shelby Tribute Celebration, being held at 6 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, May 30th at the Petersen Automotive Museum, will be broadcast live worldwide via a free webcast. In addition to viewing this ceremony via webcast, enthusiasts are encouraged to join Shelby owners around the world in a “Rev Your Engine” salute to the life of an American icon, and friend, Carroll Shelby.

“We’re so excited to share this farewell tribute of an American Legend with all of the Shelby and automotive fans around the world,” said Jenni Shreeves, director of the Carroll Shelby Foundation. “Carroll genuinely valued the people who admired and owned his cars.

According to the countdown clock on the Team Shelby homepage, something will begin at 10:00 pm EDT tomorrow. Is that the webcast or the memorial? Based on the other information it appears to be the memorial but I would think you'd want people to tune at at the beginning of the webcast.

Agreed, that clock is the countdown to the live webcast of the memorial. However the webcast will start an hour before that I believe. The countdown clock I believe was going to be to the actual time of the "Rev Your Shelby" tribute, which would mean that the countdown clock should be set 5 minutes faster to the 6:55 pm PDT time. Or I guess the Rev your Shelby will be at the 5:00 minute mark.
