Don’t forget that the KLMC Evening Concours Wednesday 19th August. Regular attendees will be pleased to know that the formula is just the same as last year. For the benefit of newer members, or those who haven’t been before, here’s a summary of what the event is about.

The Evening Concours is a lighthearted event where the participants judge the cars themselves. Although the top few cars at this event are usually absolutely spotless, the majority are not. The emphasis is on polishing it up and having a go, and making a fun evening of it. There’s a hot pot supper (with vegetarian option) included in the entry fee and the food is served while the judges are going hungry working out the results.

The concours is a public event, anyone can wander round the Heaves Hotel grounds, but it is aimed squarely at participants rather than onlookers. Anyone can be a participant. Entry costs £2 per car and food is available and can be ordered and paid at the bar.

There is no advance booking, just turn up at Heaves from 6.30 onwards.

The event is publicized to neighboring car clubs and to some one-make clubs, and usually attracts a very wide selection of cars of all ages, typically around 50 entries.

The list of classes is shown below and is pretty self-explanatory. Everyone gets put into either class 1 or 2, and into the appropriate age class. All the other classes are optional, the entrant decides.

Class 1: Best Saloon Class 2: Best Sports /GT
Best Pre ’73 Best ’73 - ’92
Best Post ’92 Best Customised/Modified
Best Porsche Best Exterior
Best Interior Best Engine Compartment
Most Faithful Servant Landlord’s Trophy

There are three awards which are not voted by the participants but by the judges…
Best Jaguar/Daimler – the Joe Eldeen Award
Most Original Car Car of the Show

This is always a fun event, so please join in and make the most of it.
