Entries for Concours SA 2018 now open
OWNERS of classic, vintage and veteran cars can now enter their cars for this year’s Concours South Africa, to be held this year from August 10-12.
This year’s event will be the third annual Concours South Africa, and as in the previous two events, will be held at the Sun City Venue, on the lawns adjacent to the Gary Player Country Club.
Last year’s event was won by the 1989 Ferrari F40 belonging to Johannesburg’s Keith Rivers, while the very first Concours South Africa winner was a 1985 De Tomaso Pantera GT5, owned by the De Abreu family in Gaborone, Botswana.
Last year over 80 cars entered in the various categories, and this year it is expected the entry will swell to some 100 cars, all built before the cut-off period of 1990.
The oldest car entered last year was a 1913 Buick entered by Johannesburg vintage and veteran specialist Brian Noik.
The organisers ask 2018 entrants to include photographs and a detailed provenance of their cars, as well as a concise history of the car model. More information on concourssouthafrica.com.
