Auto Royale – British International Concours d’Elegance 2020 – Postponed until 2021

July 17 @ 10:00 am - July 19 @ 6:00 pm

Ferrari 196 at Auto Royale

Paul Mathers, Director at Marque II Media said:

“We have been encouraged and humbled by the support we have received from car collectors, sponsors and exhibitors. It is for them that we have pushed so hard, and so optimistically, to commit to our July dates for Auto Royale. However, out of respect for our supporters and the ongoing efforts to deal with the pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to reschedule the inaugural Auto Royale until summer 2021. The health and well-being of everyone involved in Auto Royale remains the priority and we just cannot continue during the current extraordinary circumstances.”

“While we are disappointed, this is the responsible decision to make at a time when our country along with the rest of the world is facing this crisis. All visitors who have purchased tickets will be provided with a full refund. I would like to thank our supporters and wish them well at this difficult time and we look forward to celebrating the very best of motoring together at Auto Royale in 2021. We are determined and motivated to put on a great show next year.”



This is the first Auto Royale event to be held at Althorp House and it is set to become one of the most prestigious events of its type in the World. Come along and make history; in years to come when the Althorp Concours is mentioned in the same breath as Pebble Beach and Villa d’Este, you will be able to say ” I was there, at the first one!”

Here are just two of the cars that will be on show –

Lord Spencer said: Many acknowledge Althorp as one of Britain’s greatest country houses. A splendid example of understated English architecture, it’s set amongst 550 acres of lush, classical parkland. More importantly though, Althorp was built by my family as the Spencer family’s headquarters. It is therefore with great pleasure that I open the gates of this special, historic place to you for an event I believe is set to take its place among the great international concours d’elegance.”

“While Althorp’s witnessed some stunning events over the years, its front lawns will have never seen such a fine and impressive collection of automobiles as will be assembled here next July – and I invite you to join me on this special occasion, whether it be as an event partner, an exhibitor or a valued visitor. Come and write a page of your own history, and mix with thousands of your automotive peers in the glorious spirit of hospitality that Althorp has offered revellers for centuries.”
