2022 Greenwich Concours Dates
The Roger Sherman Baldwin Park will again host the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance this year, taking place June 3-5. Following the success of the 2021 event, this year will feature three days of collector car events kicking off with the Grand Tour on Friday June 3.
Saturday will see the Roger Sherman Baldwin Park as host to Cars & Community, presented and sponsored by Griot’s Garage. The Cars & Community event will offer an assortment of activities for families and automotive enthusiasts of all ages. The ever-popular Concours d’Lemons will take place that day along with a RADwood display, while racing simulators and other kid-friendly activities will be available in the Kids Zone.
Judy Stropus of racing and auto industry fame will be the Grand Marshal for the weekend, which will culminate with the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance itself on Sunday. As Matt Orendac, Vice Chairman of Concours Group said, “Sunday’s Greenwich Concours d’Elegance will celebrate examples of the greatest cars in the world.”
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. It’s hoped that the addition of a pick-up class will showcase another way to enter the collector car hobby.
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.
