A new ‘30 Under 30’ feature has been revealed for this summer’s Concours of Elegance, to celebrate younger classic car owners.
The standalone concours at the Hampton Court Palace event on 3-5 September will showcase 30 cars owned by enthusiasts aged 30 or under, split across six classes representing 99 years of automotive history.
And the emphasis is not necessarily on pristine, high-end classics, but on fine examples of much-loved cars.
The classes for the inaugural 30 Under 30 Concours are:
- Pioneer Petrolheads (1900-1939)
- Best of British (1940-1979)
- Italian Stallions (1940-1979)
- French Fancies (1940-1979)
- American Muscle (1940-1979)
- Leg Warmers & Spice Girls (1980-1999)
If you’d like to enter, send an email with a short description and image of your classic car. The entry fee, which includes admission for two people, a catalogue and all-day access to the Bridge of Weir Members Enclosure, is £75.
Entries are open now.
And making a return after its 2020 debut is the Junior Concours, for half-scale, handbuilt petrol-powered, electric and pedal cars of all ages.
