Classics and Coffee at the Chateau and the Magnificent Seven Competition
Classics and Coffee at the Chateau is a special gathering of independently owned high-interest driver level cars displayed on the Atlanta Concours show field on Saturday September 29h from 9:00 to 2:00. This is an opportunity for car enthusiasts to meet with other collectors and to participate in all of the weekend show field activities including the Ride and Drive Experience, Manufacturer’s Row, Merchant Walk and Food Pavilion including a breakfast menu (yes, we heard you loud and clear)!
Unique to the Atlanta Concours weekend, the “Magnificent Seven Competition” will be making its own debut during our Saturday’s “Classics and coffee at the Chateau.” Judges will choose seven exceptional cars from the show field to participate in Sunday’s Concours d’Elegance competition within their own special class. The ‘Magnificent Seven’ is the first program of its kind offering a concours role to non-concours-ready vehicles. “It’s a unique opportunity to grow involvement for car aficionados who may not be car collectors in the usual concours-sense but still are enthusiasts that take deep pride in the vehicles they own and restore themselves,” said Keith Martin, 2017 head judge.
“We’ll be looking for seven exceptional vehicles that stand out based on unique attributes and offer those vehicles and their owners the chance to publicly showcase their car within an authentic and highly regarded setting on the Sunday Concours show field.” Additionally, all attendees of Saturday’s event will have the chance to win a Weekend General Admission ticket to the 2019 Concours by matching their own seven choices prior to those named by the officials.
Registration for Saturday, Classics and Coffee will be available in May of 2018.
