About the Concours of Elegance:

Established in 2012, the inaugural Concours of Elegance was held within the private grounds of Windsor Castle to mark the diamond jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen’s reign.  Organised by Thorough Events, the first Concours of Elegance set a new global benchmark for a classic car concours; winning prestigious awards in the process; unheard of for a ‘start-up’ event in its first year.  The second Concours of Elegance was held in 2013 to equal fanfare and acclaim at the historic Royal Palace of St James in London.  Only the highest caliber of cars are invited to the Concours of Elegance, event, with the rarest cars in the world, from all over the world, painstakingly selected by the Concours Steering Committee; a respected team of authoritative historic car experts.  A key objective of the annual Concours of Elegance is to raise significant sums for charity, with the 2013 event at St James’s Palace generating in excess of £250,000.
