Concours of Elegance 2017
September 1 @ 8:00 am - September 3 @ 5:00 pm
Concours of Elegance 2017 – sixty of the world’s rarest cars gather at Hampton Court Palace in London between Friday the 1st and Sunday the 3rd of September.
Concours of Elegance is unique among UK car shows as the only automotive event to be held at a royal venue each year.
In a world-first, the Jaguar D-Types that took 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 6th places at Le Mans during the late Fifties, will be reunited.
Curated by motoring expert and evo magazine founder, Harry Metcalfe will be a selection of modern supercars.
Visitors will be treated to the sights and sounds of the very first motoring pioneers. Concours of Elegance 2017 and the Royal Automobile Club bring together a collection of pre-1905 ‘veteran’ cars.
Now in its sixth year, Concours of Elegance 2017 differs from a traditional concours in that the cars are judged by the owners of cars taking part in the event. Organisers maintain that if a car has been invited to participate, it is already a winner.
Outside the main 60 car competition, The Club Trophy aims to bring together the ‘best of the best’ from the UK car club scene. The winner is automatically awarded entry into the following years 60-car Concours selection. Keep an eye out for last year’s winner, a 1923 Aston Martin Clover Leaf, at Hampton Court Palace.
The car with the most votes is awarded the Pullman Trophy and named ‘Best in Show’. Last years winner was the incredible, one-off, Hispano-Suiza H6B Dubonnet Xenia.
