Few other concours have improved so rapidly year-on-year
If this was a record chart then we’d need a DJ excitedly proclaiming the ascendance of Salon Privé, as it’s fast heading up the listings. Few other concours have improved so rapidly year-on-year, and the healthy rivalry between Salon Privé and the Concours of Elegance over the same days seems to have spurred the former in particular to head onwards and upwards. Thursday is the Concours d’Elegance, Friday is Ladies’ Day celebrating elegance (and hats specifically) alongside the concours, Saturday adds the Masters-themed display, and the Sunday opens up the event to the public with more than 1000 supercars and classics on display. Correspondingly large crowds attend. All this takes place at one of the UK’s greatest stately homes, Blenheim Palace – the birthplace of Winston Churchill and the current home of the Duke of Marlborough.
