Concours D'Elegance

A Concours d’Elegance is an event during which owners of restored and highly maintained cars compete to see which is closest to its ‘as delivered’ condition. In simple terms, it’s a car show. During a Maverick Region concours, owners and spectators alike will enjoy viewing a wide variety of well-prepared Porsche cars. This is your not-to-be missed Maverick event!

There are two types of concours: the highly competitive PCA national level where cars are judged for originality, restoration and/or cleanliness, and the "top-only or street" concours. At the national level of competition, owners have spent many hours preparing all aspects of their cars, and competition can be intense.

The top-only or street concours is much more relaxed and is the type Maverick Region sponsors. Only the car’s exterior, interior and a storage compartment will be judged. Points are deducted from a maximum possible value based on condition and cleanliness, and trophies are awarded to the top cars. Cars will compete against like models based on the Maverick Region Concours Guidelines.

See Andy Kay's article in Slipstream (March 2016) for more information.

Details Photo Day

Our first Photo Day was such a huge success that members keep asking when we are going to do another one. Since our members are probably going to be cleaning their cars for the car show we figured we would do another Photo Day on the same day as the car show.

We will be taking photos from 9am-11am in the front north parking lot of Lakeside Market. See the map below for the specific location.
