The British International Concours d’Elegance in which up to 100 cars from Britain and abroad compete for a range of traditional class awards, special celebration awards and the coveted Best in Show. Destined to take its place among the World’s most important concours d’elegance competitions, all classes of vehicles from Edwardian era to 1980 are eligible for entry and ultimate selection.

The Concept & Innovation lawn

The most highly anticipated feature of motor shows through the ages is often the exotic, engineering marvels that are concepts – designed to give us some insight into the future, whilst often reflecting on the past. Located in front of the VIP Lounge and opposite the Parterre and Club Invitational display, our Concept & Innovation Lawn showcases the very latest designs and innovations as incorporated into the classics of the future, whether they be high-end, motor show concepts, pre-production or launch models

Successful entrants will enjoy a 5-star weekend at the former Rothchild family property, with special events and private Driver’s Club membership whilst showcasing their special vehicle to thousands of classic motoring enthusiasts.

Special Class

The Dorothy Levitt Award
This award is presented in honour of the driver they once called “the fastest girl on Earth”, the top-class British “lady driver” and Ladies World Speed Record (1905) holder. Winner of the 1903 Southport Speed Trials and 1907 Herkomer Trophy, Levitt was also credited with teaching Queen Alexandra to drive. This special trophy is awarded to the most elegant car entered by a female collector.

The Tour & Grand Arrival

The exclusive Tour is the official opening event of Auto Royale and takes entrants of the British International Concours d’Elegance on a scenic drive through Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

A light breakfast precedes the first leg of the Tour, then there is a stop for brunch and to display the cars en route, before finishing with the Grand Arrival at Waddesdon Manor.

For Friday afternoon ticket holders, the Grand Arrival of the Tour is a highlight of the day and the best opportunity visitors will have to see the cars of the concours in motion as they take their places on the front lawns of Waddesdon Manor. It will be an auspicious arrival and one that genuine enthusiasts will not want to miss.

Our event partnerships are a priority for us

At Auto Royale Concours, we are focused on developing mutually beneficial partnerships. Our partners are true stakeholders in our business and our success is tied with theirs.

SVA Says: The Specialist Vehicle Trade Association was over the moon to be invited to adopt Auto Royale Concours as an official partner. Having worked in the Classic and Performance Car World for over 14 years, I cant think of anyone better than Paul, Ben Guynan and the team to deliver an outstanding event. Auto Royale Concours we believe will become a ‘Must attend’ event in the calendar and we recommend all SVA members around the World to find out more about, sponsorship, exhibiting or attending this important event.
