Concours d’Elegance draws thousands to Radnor Hunt grounds
On Sunday Sept. 11, the 20th annual Radnor Hunt Concours d’Elegance car show drove in a show-stopping collection of cars and motorcycles for area car enthusiasts. The Concours d’Elegance, which debuted in 1997, is an invitation-only event bringing together 100 of the most interesting and significant automobiles. The event, held on the grounds of the Radnor Hunt in Malvern, hosted close to 3,200 attendees over the three days featuring Lancia as this year’s marques along with Mercedes Benz 300SL Coupe and Roadster and mid-century motorcycles.
Winners included the two Best of Show winners; one for Sporting Marque and the other for NonSporting Marque: the 1958 Ferrari 250 Tour de France Competizione Berlinetta Scaglietti, owned by Dr. Roy Brod of Lancaster, and the 1931 Marmon Sixteen Convertible Sedan owned by Richard Driehaus of Chicago, Ill.
Fun was had by all as guests never tired browsing through the vehicle-filled fields of Radnor Hunt. In the end Thorncroft Equestrian Center finished first as the proceeds will be steered to the organization and the important work they do with therapeutic riding for both handicapped and special needs riders.
