Keith Martin Returns as Chief Judge

We are very excited to announce that Sports Car Market Magazine publisher and star of Velocity Channel “What’s My Car Worth” Keith Martin (our 2016 Honorary Judge) will take on the official Chief Judge role at the 2017 Atlanta Concours d’Elegance!  Keith returns after judging an outstanding field of Concours cars including the 1909 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, Best of Show winner at our 2016 inaugural show.

Welcome back Keith!

New Classes & Events Coming to the 2017 Show

A variety of special car classes and several exciting new events have been added to the 2017 show. Featured at the show will be two special collections to be announced soon; several new classes including “Fabulous Fins of the Fifties; and more than 100 award-winning Concours cars including a 1956 class-winning Austin Healey 100M from Harbor Island, SC.

Unique to the Atlanta Concours weekend, an event dubbed as the “Magnificent Seven” will be making its own debut during Saturday’s Drivers at the Chateau. Judges will choose seven exceptional cars from the Saturday show field to participate in Sunday’s Concours competition within their own special class.

A Consignment Corner showcasing classic and high-end exotic vehicles for purchase, carefully pre-chosen as investment collector cars, will be featured on the show field.  Seasoned collectors and those new to the hobby will have an opportunity to preview these highly collectible automobiles for sale.

Returning to the show for your enjoyment are the high-end luxury and exotic auto manufacturer and lifestyle exhibitors, the chance to drive the exotic car of your dreams at our Ride and Drive Experience, preservation and barn finds, celebrity and expert technical presentations, our merchant walkway, and much more.

Mark your calendar for this new monthly event!

Thanks for participating in our survey!

Thanks to those of you who participated in our 2016 post-event survey. Highlights from your feedback included improved communication, more cars, and yes we heard you… breakfast on the showfield!

We now have an Entrant Liaison dedicated to assisting Concours Entrants with the application process and show experience. Also, more cars will be on the 2017 show field, and breakfast will be available both mornings of the show.  We know that these and many other improvements will enhance the weekend experience. Thanks for your great ideas and congratulations to Don Menendez, a survey participant and the recipient of two tickets to the 2017 Atlanta Concours d’Elegance!
