Concours D’Elegance

Much has been made in the past about what the rules should be and indeed who should set them!
Judging is also a very delicate area with some judges spending 30 minutes on a car – others not even opening the door.
We as a club try to offer a fair and balanced judging by using our own very experienced judges supported by judges from other organisations.
We respect the fact that many competitors have travelled long distances and spent a lot of time in preparation of their cars.
Our rules are printed and circulated – every competitor has a copy so there is no doubt or confusion.
Our judges will check and inspect all items on the car. As in previous years we shall be organising both Condition and Concours competitions.
For those who aren’t sure of the difference, a basic definition is:

Concours

As the car left the factory. No modifications are allowed to the body, interior or mechanics – no extra chrome or special equipment.
However marks will not be deducted for alarms, fire extinguishers or stainless steel exhausts.

Condition

As the owner wishes to present the car – the overall condition is what is judged.
Premier Class is for those cars that won while in Concours or Condition.
If after two years the car has not won in this class it will be moved to Concours/Condition Class
Master Class is for those cars that won while in Premier Class.
If after two years the car has not won in this class it will be moved to Premier Class
It is important for all entrants to be with their cars during judging.
Judging cannot be completed without the owner present.
Please note that all MGs must be at least 12 months old.
Marks will be awarded in both Concours and Condition classes as follows: –

Bodywork & chrome

40 max

Engine compartment

35

Boot compartment

20

Interior

Wheels & wheel arches

20

To obtain a 1st in class trophy the car must obtain 126 points (72%) - To obtain a 2nd in class trophy the car must obtain 105 points (60%)

Our thanks go to the judges for judging at our show and to the MGOC for sponsoring the trophies.
