Carsceneinternational.com regrets that we have only just found out (by looking for a Report on the event) that this event was cancelled at short notice. After issuing promotional updates on a monthly basis, the organisers did not see fit to inform us that they were “pulling the plug”.

The inaugural Auto Royale event, incorporating the British International Concours d’Elegance, will take place at Waddesdon Manor, Buckinghamshire on 16 – 18 July 2021. This brand new and exclusive event will showcase the very best classic cars from around the world and aims to set a new concours standard in the United Kingdom.

Waddesdon Manor, set in the Buckinghamshire countryside, will host Auto Royale over three days next summer. Built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in the 1870s for displaying his vast art and antique collection while entertaining the glitterati of the day, the historic manor house has previously hosted a successful concours– the legendary Louis Vuitton 150th Anniversary Classic in 2004.

Auto Royale’s experienced organisers promise the British International Concours d’Elegance competition to be of the highest standard. Celebrating the British love of cars, automotive history and design, and creating a fun and engaging day, Auto Royale aims to reimagine the classic concours paradigm and refresh the vibrant classic car community.

The three-day celebration will showcase a mix of prestigious concours competition, vintage, classic and supercar car club displays, specialist traders, corporate hospitality and the very best of local food and wine, on the stunning grounds of one of Britain’s greatest country manor houses.

A number of classes of vehicles will compete for Best in Show including historics, preservation and restorations. In addition, there will be special classes for the inaugural event including Carrosseries Scaglietti and Drogo, the cars of F1 legend Fangio – to celebrate El Maestro’s 110th birthday, and a class for British favourite Jaguar to mark the 120th birthday of founder Sir William Lyons and 70th anniversary of the C-Type.

Auto Royale is set to be a firm favourite in the automotive summer calendar and will be hosted by ex-racer, raconteur and concours aficionado, Alain de Cadenet.

1954 HWM Cadillac

This unique Cadillac-engined HWM was built for its original amateur-racer owner, and raced in period at Goodwood, Aintree, Brands Hatch, Snetterton and Crystal Palace. The chassis and body were supplied by George Abecassis and then fitted with an engine from the owner’s previous car, an Allard J2. It’s pretty aluminium body was originally built for the 1954 Mille Miglia but never used. The car was soon exported to New Zealand where it enjoyed a long race career until 1970 before finding itself in long term storage in a barn. Since restoration, the car has been successfully raced and shown at concours events around the world including Pebble Beach.
