Concours of Elegance

at Hampton Court Palace

In association with Finesse Detailing UK

The Most Prestige Event in our Calendar

We were absolutely delighted to be invited to display 10 of our club members cars at this year’s Concours event at Hampton Court Palace on Sunday 8th September.

We were joined by a dozen other club members to convoy to the event on this beautiful summers day.

The dress code was ‘dress to impress’ and club boys and girls turned out in their finest!

Our Line Up Display

We had an ecliptic mix of club cars for the event which consisted of Ascari, Alfa Romeo, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Lotus, Maserati, Aston Martin, McLaren & Porsche.

We were excited to see that 9 of our 10 cars were the only examples at the Concours!!

Ascari Ecosse
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ
Porsche 911 GT3
Alfa Romeo 8C
Lotus Evora
Aston Martin DB9 Volante
Maserati GranTurismo
Lamborghini Huracan Performante
Ferrari FF

Upon Arrival

After we had arrived and set up, we met back up with our convoy members to enjoy a spot of breakfast in Tom’s Kitchen, the event’s premier catering partner.

After breakfast it was time to take a leisurely look around the some 75 of the worlds most significant automobiles around the palace grounds.

At lunch time it was time for a picnic in the park for some, whilst others opted for Hospitality and headed back to Tom’s Kitchen for a posh spread.

After lunch there was an opportunity to look around the cars one more time, explore the palace grounds or wonder through King Henry VIII’s regal palace.

It was time to reflect on car of the show (for which there was much debate) and plan our convoy home.

What a wonderful event which many said was our best ever yet!
