Clubs wel­come at new con­cours

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING - STU­ART JOHN­STON

FROM Model T Fords to the lat­est Fer­rari 488 Spi­ders, and ev­ery­thing in be­tween. That will be the mouth-wa­ter­ing spec­trum of mo­tor­ing de­lights that awaits en­trants and vis­i­tors alike, when Con­cours South Africa 2016 is hosted at Sun City on Septem­ber 9 to 11.

The three-day event for the top col­lectible cars in the coun­try is a first for South Africa and in­ter­est has been huge since the first me­dia an­nounce­ment was made just over a fort­night ago.

Apart from the Con­cours com­pe­ti­tion, there will also be a Show-n-Shine, with spe­cial­ist cars on dis­play for the en­joy­ment of all, while not be­ing sub­ject to the rigours of a for­mal Con­cours judg­ing process.

For car clubs who wish to make the trip to Sun City as a unique club out­ing, special park­ing ar­eas will be al­lo­cated for club dis­plays and in­di­vid­ual spe­cial­ist cars out­side the ho­tel in the gen­eral park­ing area.

The fol­low­ing cat­e­gories have been iden­ti­fied for the in­au­gu­ral Con­cours South Africa and Show-n-Shine events.
