The second Sunday in February has become a highlight in every New Zealand car lover’s calendar. Thousands of car enthusiasts visit Ellerslie Racecourse to enjoy this country’s biggest line up of classics – many of them regarded among the world’s best restorations.
The Intermarque Concours d'Elegance is central to the show. It celebrates classic cars with competitions of an international standard based on presentation, appearance, originality and excellence. The coveted awards include the Intermarque Team Shield, Masters Class and Best “Survivor”
Aside from the Concours cars and a number of exciting new events, about 70 car clubs will create the biggest display of different car marques in the country. These displays compete for the Best Club Display.
Back for 2022 are new attractions:
the 50-50-50 competition for younger cars and younger entrants.
a display of classic Hotrods
Rust Alley - a display of unrestored cars, partial builds & other bits & pieces
Displayed vehicles range from the early 1920s, through to the latest modern exotics. Vehicles range from micros to high performance supercars. The event is renowned for the diversity of cars on show – from British, European and American marques through to Japanese, Australian and even sometimes New Zealand made cars.
As previously, there is also the Tours d'Elegance road tour for classic cars to participate in a delightful drive around local areas with fellow classic car enthusiasts on Saturday the 13th February. See Tours info and online entry for details of the timings and route for 2022.
