Grand Arrival on Owners’ Day

The Concours may be the main event, but the Grand Arrival is a spectacle in itself. Eighty of the finest cars, spanning more than 100 years of automotive progress drive in procession, before taking their places in the Fountain Gardens for the weekend. Seeing the Concours cars in motion is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The Club Trophy, supported by the Royal Automobile Club

The UK’s best car clubs, including those of Aston Martin Owners Club, Ferrari Owners Club, Jaguar Drivers Club and Jensen Owners Club will showcase 40 of the rarest and most impressive cars of their members at the Concours of Elegance. An independent panel of expert judges goes on to a pick a winner, which is then included as part of the main Concours event the following year.

The Jaguar Trophy by Jaguar Classic

A special Trophy created for Jaguars of all ages, this event gathers together 50 of the finest Jaguars in the country to be scrutinised by a panel of experts, which has previously included Jaguar design director, Ian Callum. The winner will be awarded the Jaguar Trophy and a host of other prizes from Concours of Elegance’s partners.

The Levitt Concours

On Saturday 2nd September, a group of 30 rare and exotic vehicles from Austin Healey 3000s to Ferrari Daytonas – all owned by women – will join the Levitt Concours, driving their vehicles into the gardens of Hampton Court Palace for a curated schedule of events.

Organised by women, and designed for women, the Levitt Concours will also be judged by a panel of modern day racers, style icons and national editors.

Car Club Displays

Concours of Elegance will be inviting leading car clubs from the UK to arrive in style, parking their cars within the gardens of Hampton Court Palace. With support from Aston Martin, Ferrari, Jaguar, Jensen and Mercedes-Benz owners’ clubs, visitors to the Concours can rest assured there will be an eclectic selection of rare luxury and performance cars on display.

Sunday 3rd September

Car Club Displays

As on Saturday, Concours of Elegance will host another selection of car clubs in the UK on the Sunday. Visitors will be able to see luxury and performance models from some of the world’s most famous manufacturers.

Royal Warrant Holders Association

The Royal Warrant Holders Association was formed in 1875 to ensure continued existence of the Royal Warrant as a respected institution. A Royal Warrant is a mark of recognition of those who supply goods or services to the Royal Households. Meanwhile, the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust helps support the training of craftspeople working in Britain.

Grand Depart

As the Concours of Elegance wraps up on Sunday afternoon, there’s still one last spectacle for visitors – the Grand Depart. Eighty of the rarest cars in the world start their engines and prepare to leave the grounds of Hampton Court Palace as hundreds of onlookers wave off the Concours cars for another year. It’s a fitting end to an incredible weekend.
