Audrain Concours d’Elegance 2022
October 2 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Concours d’Elegance is not a trial of performance, but of elegance.
Sunday’s Concours d’Elegance is the crown jewel of Audrain Newport Concours & Motor Week. The Concours team works year-round to assemble a terrific selection of judges from around the globe. The Concours classes span the decades from early 1900 to 1980 with a focus on cars that pay homage to the theme of History, Luxury, and Sport. Donald Osborne, Nic Waller and the rest of the selection committee search diligently for special cars to engage guests from around the world.
First, second, and third-class trophies and ribbons will be awarded with the first in class winners competing for the Willie K. Vanderbilt Trophy. There will also be one of a kind awards given by some very special guests and judges.
Newport’s extensive automotive history dates back as early as the Gilded Age. The first American car race, the Vanderbilt Cup, took place in this historic area. On September 6, 1900, Willie K.Vanderbilt and some of his closest friends traveled to the nearby horse track to race their newly-imported automobiles. Little did they realize the impact the Vanderbilt Cup would have on American racing culture.
Given its rich motoring history, Newport is the premiere destination for a Concours & Motor Week. Beautiful, historic mansions and the seemingly endless Atlantic Ocean provide the most elegant of backdrops. Audrain Newport Concours & Motor Week is a celebration of the automobile, uniting enthusiasts from around the world.
