The Junior Concours
In 2020, the Concours of Elegance successfully launched a brand new feature that became one of the highlights of the event: the Junior Concours.
Taking place from 3rd – 5th 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 5th. 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 the 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.
HOW TO APPLY
Please submit a brief description and history of the car, along with an image, for consideration by the curators. A maximum of 20 cars will be selected which must be privately owned and not for sale. Please send your submission to Chrissy@thoroughevents.co.uk
Entry to the Junior Concours costs £100 for two adults and two children, which includes general admission to the Concours of Elegance. Additional admission tickets can be purchased at a special rate of £25.00.
