The Concours of Elegance will once again bring together a selection of 60 of the rarest cars from around the world — many of which will never have been seen before in the UK.

Many of the Concours cars will also take part in a two-day driving tour in the days running up to the main Concours event.

Complementing the Concours of Elegance will be displays of hundreds of other fine motor cars, including entrants to The Club Trophy. Now in it’s fourth year, The Club Trophy sees some of the UK’s most prestigious car clubs offering up their finest examples to an independent panel of judges.

The winning Club Trophy car will secure a place in the following year's main Concours of Elegance event.
