It’s that time of year again – the fourth annual Concours d’Elegance is back at its fabulous host venue – Steyn City from Friday 30th August to Sunday 1st September 2019.
The event has its roots in 17th century France when the aristocracy would parade their horse-drawn carriages through the parks of Paris. With the advent of the automobile, Concours d’Elegance events evolved into competitions between automobile manufacturers, custom coachbuilders, and owners, whose vehicles were judged on the beauty of their design.
Judging of the cars will take place on both Saturday and Sunday with the prize-giving ceremony on Sunday afternoon. This year’s judging panel will be made up of experts, both local and international.
Exclusive in South Africa, Concours South Africa will bring together the finest classic, luxury and sports car from pre-war vintage to the modern era. The competition is limited to 120 vehicles and will take place on the plush lawns of Steyn City in Dainfern.
The Concours is not a contest of speed, but of elegance. Automobiles are judged on the quality of presentation, historical accuracy, technical merit and style—and the best garner reward and recognition and proves to be an annual family highlight to enjoy taking in all the vehicles, and a glass of wine on the lawns of course!
Tickets are R 350 per person per day, with kids under 12 and pensioners entering at no cost.
