CONCOURS AND CAR DISPLAY 2022
A selection of car photos by Clive Mulder.
This event derives from an earlier one called a Concours d’Elegance which originated in Paris in the early 20th century. It was a combined showcase of fashion and cars. It was revived at Surfers Paradise as part of the Speed Week held there in the 70s.MG Car Clubs formed in Australia from the early 1950’s picked up the event as one of their annual features and in 1970 incorporated it as a National event in their Annual National Meetings.
Our Club has presented a trophy for Concours since 1962 when Denis Geary presented the Club with a trophy for this purpose.
The first winner was Tom Armstrong. The current Concours event is confined to judging vehicles for their relative merits in terms of finish, originality, cleanliness and appointments. The coachwork design is not a factor, but is for the purpose of determining classes, the determinant of the the marque. The basic intent of the Concours is aimed at ‘Maintaining the Marque’.
