Sunday 1st September 2024
Celebrating the best of half-scale hand-built pedal,
electric and petrol-powered cars of all ages
In 2020, the Concours of Elegance successfully launched a BRAND new feature which became one of the highlights of the event – the Junior Concours.
Taking place from 30th August – 1st September, this year’s Concours of Elegance, presented by A.Lange & Söhne, will once again welcome the Junior Concours to Hampton Court Palace’s Fountain Gardens on Sunday 1st September.
Celebrating the best of half-scale hand-built pedal, electric and petrol-powered cars of all ages, the much-anticipated Junior Concours will see parents and their children taking on their respective roles of Mechanic and Works Driver.
A maximum of 20 half and three-quarter scale cars will line-up among a priceless collection of the world’s rarest cars at the Concours of Elegance.
Much like their full-size stablemates, the Junior Concours cars are mostly hand-built, borrowing intricate details from iconic cars such as the Bugatti T52, Jaguar E-Type, Ferrari F1 Dino and Mercedes 300SLR.
The faithful recreations vary in their complexity, with some requiring pedal power and others making use of electric motors or two-stroke petrol engines and centrifugal clutches.
Over the course of the day, the cars will be piloted by their Works Driver (supported by their Mechanics, of course!) – up onto the Concours Live Stage.
Competitors will win awards for:
Best Pedal Car
Best Electric Car
Best Petrol Car
Most Original Car
Best Dressed Driver/Mechanic
