The Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance 2012: rarest classic motorcars, rare horse-drawn carriages and classic Royal cars
A historic motoring event will be staged at famed Windsor Castle to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. The inaugural Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance will take place within the inner courtyard inside the walls of Windsor Castle from September 7-9, 2012.
The Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance 2012 aims to bring together some of the rarest and most outstanding classic motorcars from around the world. In addition to the main Concours with never before seen cars in Great Britain, the event also plans to include displays of rare horse-drawn carriages and classic Royal cars.
“The Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance is a significant new event celebrating the style and glamour of historical automobiles, the like of which this country has never seen. The event will also be a fitting testimonial to the craftsmanship of the UK classic car restoration industry of which the UK is a leading player,” commented Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance Creative Director, Jeremy Jackson Sytner.
“Taking place in this highly prestigious location, the event is being established as a major charity fund-raising initiative,” said Sytner, quoted by sportscardigest.
The Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance will be open to the public on Saturday, September 8, 2012 and Sunday, September 9, 2012. The event will run as a not-for-profit enterprise with all profits going to charity.
