    05/07/2017 - 34th Annual Deutsche Marque Concours d'Elegance, Vienna, VA

    34th Annual Deutsche Marque Concours d’Elegance
    Sunday, May 7, 2017 (Rain Date: Sunday, May 21, 2017)
    Nottoway Park
    9601 Courthouse Rd
    Vienna, VA 22181

    Registration will be through Motorsportreg.com. See nccbmwcca.org for details and updates.

    You must be a current BMW CCA member to register.

    One of the highlights of our event schedule, and an annual rite of spring for German car fans, is the Deutsche Marque Concours d’Elegance. This year marks the 34th time that we have gathered with our friends from the Greater Washington Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America (MBCA) and the Potomac Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) for this terrific show. Once again, we have reserved Nottoway Park in Vienna, easily reached via Route 66. The park entrance will be marked with large car club banners so that you cannot miss it.


    As in past years, a “corral” will be positioned along the entrance to the park to display special cars not being judged. Space will be limited. More vendors are anticipated. The judged entrants from the three marques will be interspersed, allowing visitors the opportunity to see more of the fabulous cars assembled.

    In the Deutsche Marque Concours, vehicles are judged by their condition, appearance, and cleanliness. There will be three classes at this event - Street (judged), Meister class (judged - consisting of first-place category winners from the 2016 concours), and Display class (not judged - winner selected by people’s choice balloting). Judges scoring cars in the Street and Meister classes will only judge the tops of the cars, including the exterior, interior, engine bay, storage compartments and chrome, but not the chassis. Street class cars are generally divided into several groups based upon BMW CCA national concours rules.

    Please note: Cars produced after 2012 will not be judged, but are welcome to be entered in the Display class, and eligible for the People's Choice and Judges' Choice awards.

    Vehicles will be classified into the following categories:
    Classics
    2002s
    Modern 1980s - E30 3 Series, E28 5 Series, E24 6 Series, E237 Series, M1 and Z1
    Modern 1990s - E36 3 Series, E34 5 Series, E32 7 Series, E318 Series and Z3
    Modern 2000s - E46 3 Series, E39 5 Series, E38 7 Series, 6,Z4 and Z8
    Current - E87 1 Series, E90/91/92/93 3 Series, E60/61 F10 5Series, E63/64 6 Series, E65/66 F01/02 7 Series, E83 F25 X3, E53/70/71 X5 and E71 X6

    The entry fee for the concours is $30 per car ($40 after April 30th or on-site). Registration includes one wine and cheese reception ticket. Additional wine and cheese reception tickets are available at $15 each.


    There is no charge to attend the concours as a spectator. Inorder to allow us to plan appropriately for the number of guests, please register in advance using the registration form that at MotorsportReg.com.

    Six weeks until the big show!

    If you're hesitant to enter, thinking your car is not a "show car," fear not! While the prospect of having your car's cleanliness and condition scrutinized by judges may sound daunting, all participants had to start somewhere. We welcome new registrants, as it allows them to get a better idea of what areas of their cars could benefit from some TLC. They will get a chance to meet with concours veterans and judges, allowing them to pick up some tips. Beside the Judged class, the Display class is open to all comers to show off their pride and joy. Cars produced after 2012 will not be judged, but are welcome to be entered in the Display class, and eligible for the People's Choice (chosen by event spectators) and Judges' Choice awards.

    4 weeks until the show! We dream of having weather like today's on May 7th. Thanks to those members who have pre-registered - this helps us plan for the food & beverages for the awards reception that follows the judging.
    Many thanks to BMW of Fairfax for continuing to be our chapter's Corporate Sponsor. They plan to bring some great eye-candy for us.

    Stephen,
    Chip Geppi, BMW of Fairfax's Pre-Owned Sales Director, confirmed that they are bringing the following cars, in case you wanted to consider a move up from that clunker!
    *M4 GTS
    *Alpina B6 Gran Coupe
    *M6 Competition Edition
    *New 2017 540i
    They will also bring a 5th car, maybe a X5M, but he's trying to locate an i8 and M2 (no promises on those).

    3 weeks to go! Hopefully members will find time over this holiday weekend to make progress getting their cars ready. Thanks, again, to those members who have pre-registered.
    Remember, there is no charge for spectators at the event, so come out and support the program & your fellow members' efforts. We plan to have several new food trucks at the venue to make your visit more pleasant.

    A reminder - 2 weeks to go until the 2017 Deutsche Marque Concours d'Elegance

    Sunday, May 7, 2017 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
    (Rain date: Sunday, May 21, 2017)

    Nottoway Park, 9610 Courthouse Road, Vienna, Virginia 22181
    Map: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/maps/nottowaymap.htm

    Returning to the event lawn this year will be another multi-make "Car Corral" display area adjacent to the entrance road of the park. The Car Corral remains free of charge and open to the public to display any non-judged automobile. Space will be limited, but, because usually there are many interesting cars that end up hidden in the parking lot somewhere, the Car Corral will exist simply to highlight the level of automotive enthusiasm that makes an event like the Deutsche Marque Concours so popular year after year!

    Please bring your appetite this year because we'll have three food trucks ready to take your order: Red, Hot & Blue, Fava Pot Egyptian/Mediterranean, and Goodies Frozen Custard and Treats!

    The Deutsche Marque Concours d'Elegance remains free of charge to spectators and the Concours entry fee will be kept the same as in years past.

    Please understand that in order to maintain fairness in judging, you must have your car both registered and in position on the lawn well before judging starts at 10:30 a.m., preferably by 10 a.m. If your car is selected for an award, the announcement will be made at the (approx.) 3:00 p.m. Awards Reception. Please be present at the Awards Reception to receive it, otherwise it must be awarded to the runner-up in attendance at the Reception.

    To ensure this event runs smoothly, we invite you to volunteer your time! Volunteer opportunities include setting up our registration tent area, guiding entrants to lawn parking spots, handing out registration materials, participating as a Concours Judge, setting up our Awards Reception area, and helping to leave the facilities as we found them. Your input is very much needed and appreciated!

    See the event website at dmconcours.com

    John,

    Wanted to say "Congrats" one more time for all you did to make this event a wonderful fun time to show cars and hang out with fellow BMWs owners. The event as always was a true success in spite of food control issues, too wet a show field, and pollen. The move to the hard surface parking lots allowed us all to get to know each other every well. Another good point was us "Modern" owners felt welcomed and enjoyed the break in the weather even if we did take home a few trophies... GREAT JOB John!
