Introducing Coventry Concours
MotoFest Coventry and the Association of Heritage Engineers have created a fantastic new opportunity for all those hoping to enter their vehicles into car shows and concours competitions up and down the UK this spring and summer. Like many of these events, MotoFest Coventry has unfortunately had to postpone the event until 4th, 5th and 6th June 2021.
The 2020 event was going to host our first concours event in partnership with the Association of Heritage Engineers, within the stunning Coventry Cathedral ruins. Our teams have been working extremely hard during these testing times, to bring to you the virtual Coventry Concours. We have taken a much loved concours style event and are delivering it to you on the digital platform of Facebook.
We have an array of celebrity judges including Allan Winn, Amanda Stretton, Angela Hucke, Drew Pritchard, Ralph Hosier and Neil Campbell with more judges to be added in due course. Look out for profiles on each of our judges on the dedicated Facebook event page (link below).
Over the next four weeks, the competition will have four dedicated rounds dependent upon the age of your vehicle.
Round 1 – Vehicles produced in the 40s and 50s (Pre-war vehicles will be accepted in this category) – Saturday 9th May to Saturday 16th May
Round 2 – Vehicles produced in the 60s and 70s – Saturday 16th May to Saturday 23rd May
Round 3 – Vehicles produced in the 80s and 90s – Saturday 23rd May to Saturday 30th May
Round 4 – Vehicles produced in the 00s and 10s – Saturday 30th May to Saturday 6th June
The criteria for all entries can be found here
Each entry will submit an array of unedited photographs of an original or restored vehicle, which should have a link to the city of Coventry. This link can be strong or tenuous with the most creative and interesting tenuous link, from all entries submitted, will receive a prize.
The winner of each round, decided by the judges, will receive a Golden Ticket guaranteeing their vehicle a place at the inaugural Coventry Concours event hosted at MotoFest Coventry 2021.
