2022 Greenwich Concours d'Elegance - June 3-5
Everything kicks off on Friday with the Greenwich Grand Tour, which take entrants for a drive through Connecticut and New York, ending the day at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park. It should be a nice warmup before the rest of the show gets going on Saturday!
Saturday June 4 - RADwood and More!
Saturday will see the Roger Sherman Baldwin Park as host to Cars & Community, presented and sponsored by Griot’s Garage. This event will include RADwood, where many enthusiasts will dress in their best 80s and 90s attire – expect to see some interesting photos! The always popular Concours d’Lemons will also take place Saturday – always a treat to attend.
Plenty of family-friendly activities will be available Saturday that include racing simulators and other fun events for the younger enthusiasts at the Kids Zone.
Hagerty will hold their ever-popular Ride & Drive event on Saturday – a chance for anyone with a valid driver’s license to hop behind the wheel of a car from the Hagerty Collection. Cars will be available with automatic transmissions as well as manuals to be sure that no enthusiast will feel left out of the chance to drive a classic car around Greenwich!
Saturday will also see a few seminars take place on the Show Field that will cover Hypercars, the latest trends in the collector car market, and what enthusiasts need to know about fakes, replicas, and continuation cars.
Sunday June 5 - Concours d'Elegance
Judy Stropus of racing and auto industry fame will be the Grand Marshal for the weekend, which culminates with the Concours itself on Sunday that will include entrants ranging from a 2020 McLaren Speedtail to a 1904 Mercedes Simplex, and pretty much everything in between!
Classes for this year include Vignale-bodied cars – that will include a number of Ferraris on display. The cars, products of Alfredo Vignale – who left school when he was 11 to pursue a metalworking apprenticeship – showcase designs that range from conservative to very radical.
American cars will also be on display Sunday, including a class for Chrysler Letter Cars. There will also be a showing of American and International manufacturers in the “Powered by America” class. That class will feature internationally produced cars, powered by American drivetrains. Marques such as DeTomaso, Facel, and AC will be represented here.
Brass Era cars will make a return this year as well. These are some of the earliest cars built and range from the 1800s to 1919, colloquially known as “horseless carriages.” This class will showcase the absolute beginnings of the automotive industry.
Following the success that was seen in 2021 with the vintage SUV class, vintage pick-up trucks will be their own class for 2022. Mainly American trucks are expected to fill this class and fittingly so considering the historical connection between American industry and the pick-up truck.
Other featured classes include Alvis Car and Engineering Company, Aston Martin DB, Cadillac Eldorado (circa 1956-1964), and Rolling Bones hot rods. Motorcycles will be represented at the Concours by BSA and BMW.
The standard classes to be displayed include pre-war American, pre-war European, post-war Italian, post-war German coupes, pony cars, and supercars.
