Brian Joss – The fourth annual Concours South Africa 2019 will be held at Steyn City near Fourways, Johannesburg, from August 30 to September 1, the first day of spring.
Classic car aficionadas across the country are busy polishing their entries in anticipation of this world-class contest. A highly-regarded competition judged to the best international concours standards, a class win at Concours South Africa adds real (rand.and dollar!) value to winning entries.
If you’re not bringing your own collectable car, a bespoke range of hospitality packages are available for the classic weekend extravaganza.
These range from branded corporate pavilions for up to 100 daily VIP guests, through to tailored individual day passes.
Special features include the induction into the South African Hall of Fame, of Basil Green and Graham Duxbury. Basil Green, of course, is known for his work with the Ford Capri Perana, and Graham Duxbury, as well as being one of South Africa’s best known motorsport commentators, also won the famed Daytona 24 hour in the USA.
The welcome function and Hall of Fame induction will take place on August 30, while the Concours will start on Saturday August 31 when the judging of the competition cars will be held.
In addition, there will be a display of significant South African race cars, including Tony Viana’s Winfield BMW’s, and Jody Scheckter’s Group 5, Zakspeed Ford Escort, to name a few.
Made in South Africa cars, like the Ford Capri Perana, 333 BMW and Alfa GTV6, will also have their own display.
The Daytona Group will have some very special cars on display, including a McLaren Senna, five Rolls Royces – spanning 70 years of the marque, a superb selection from Aston Martin and a very, very special automobile from the spectacular Italian manufacturer, Pagani.
“Silvercrest Insurance will be hosting the competition entries in the Silvercrest Classic Lounge,” says event co-ordinator Greg Marucchi September 1 with a prize for best dressed, and a myriad of sensational cars, all taking place on the exquisite lawns of the Steyn City Parkland residence, just north of Fourways, Johannesburg.
