    05/15/2016 - 33rd Annual Deutsche Marque Concours d'Elegance NEW DATE

    33rd Annual Deutsche Marque Concours d’Elegance
    Re-Scheduled Date: Sunday, May 15, 2016 - Rain or shine
    Nottoway Park
    9601 Courthouse Rd
    Vienna, VA 22181

    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 33rd 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 the past several 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 2015 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 2011 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, E23 7 Series, M1 and Z1
    Modern 1990s - E36 3 Series, E34 5 Series, E32 7 Series, E31 8 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 5 Series, 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 24th or on-site). Registration includes one wine and cheese reception ticket and a commemorative dash plaque for the first 40 registrants. Additional wine and cheese reception tickets are available at $15 each.
    There is no charge to attend the concours as a spectator. In order to allow us to plan appropriately for the number of guests, please register in advance using the registration form that at MotorsportReg.com.

    Contact John McWilliams at john.mcwilliams@gmail.com if you have any questions. If you have questions on Sunday/day of show please call me (John McWilliams) at 571-699-4404. I will be at Nottoway Park at approx. 8AM.

    Schedule:
    8:30 AM Field opens to show participants for placement onto the field.
    9:00 AM General admission begins.
    10:00 AM All cars whose owners wish them to be judged must be registered, and cars placed on the field. If you would like to be judged, PLEASE have your car on the field by 10:00 AM. We do our best to judge everyone consistently and fairly, and can do this best if we have sufficient time. Thank you!
    10:30 AM Judging begins.
    2:30 - 3:00 PM Once judging is completed, scores are tallied, and winners determined, we will announce winners at the wine and cheese reception.
    3:00 PM Wine and Cheese Reception - Awards for all clubs will be presented at the Wine and Cheese Reception.
    Note: The concours is an all-day event. The organizers of all the clubs will be working diligently prior to the show as well as on the day of the event. Please also respect the hard work by the participants who have prepared their cars for the show. If you enter the event, please be prepared to stay through the awards presentation. If your vehicle places in its class and you have departed the field, the award will be given to the next runner-up in class. Further, in order to be fair to all the participants, we need to have sufficient time to judge all the cars consistently and fairly. We can't do that if people show up at 11:30 a.m. and ask to have their cars judged. We're not trying to be difficult, only respecting the efforts many of our club members make to prepare their cars for the concours. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

    The 33rd Annual Deutsche Marque Concours d'Elegance is finally here! Compete against or come see the best in vintage BMW, Porsche, and Mercedes, as each marque battles for top honors.

    Registration to compete is required and we should have a great lineup of rare, classic cars. Spectators are free but get there early to grab a parking space in our corral area.
