The Contour of Luxury Summer 2019 - Page 376

Concours of Elegance DATE Late August 2019 LOCATION London WEBSITE The Concours of Elegance takes place at Hampton Court Palace and brings together a selection 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 also take part in a 2 day driving tour in the days running up to the main Concours event. Uniquely, the Concours of Elegance winner isn’t selected by a panel of judges but by the Owners of the cars themselves. Each participant is asked to vote on the other models on display to decide which car is considered to be the ‘Best of Show’. Goodwood Revival DATE Early September 2019 LOCATION West Sussex WEBSITE The Goodwood Revival is a three-day fes- tival held each September at Goodwood Circuit since 1998 for the types of road racing cars and motorcycle that would have competed during the circuit’s original pe- riod—1948–1966. It is one of the world’s most popular motor race meetings and the only United Kingdom event which recreates the golden era of motorsport from the 1950s and 1960s. Salon Privé DATE Early September 2019 LOCATION Oxfordshire WEBSITE A Concours d’Elégance in the truest sense, Salon Privé is the most luxurious of garden parties set against the backdrop of ‘Britain’s Greatest Palace’, Blenheim Palace. Presenting the finest collection of supercars, hypercars and classic cars, along with a luxury retail village and exquisite cuisine, it is a truly unique experience. Alongside this rich and eclectic show of classic cars, this is a unique opportunity to not only admire, but also test-drive cars from the world’s most elite super and hyper car brands. Beyond the automotive wonders of Salon Privé, lies an extrava- gant and quintessentially English social day out for all to enjoy, with a luxury retail village to explore, as well as cham- pagne, lobster luncheon and afternoon tea.
