Announced – Heveningham Hall Concours d’Elegance winners!

The winners of Heveningham Hall Concours d’Elegance 2018 have been announced - with a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO owned by Pink Floyd's Nick Mason taking top spot in its class

The judges have spoken! Heveningham Hall Concours d’Elegance can now confirm the winners of 2018’s motorsport and aviation concours, which took place in the baking heat last weekend.

Gracing the 5000 acre Georgian estate in the heart of Suffolk, the line-up of exotic metal was intoxicating, to say the least. However, some stood out from the rest, with Chairman of the motorsport judging panel Max Hunt and fellow judges J Mays and Romulus Rost awarding the following vehicles the bronze Lawrence Edwards trophy:

  • 1939 Delage D8-120 Cabriolet (owned by Peter & Merle Mullin) 
    • Winner, pre-war category (commendations for the 1927 Bugatti T37 Grand Prix and the 1937 Bugatti Type 57S)
  • 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO (owned by Nick Mason) 
    • Winner, post-war category (commendations for the 1953 Jaguar C Type and the 1964 Ferrari 500 Superfast)
  • 1987 Porsche 962 (owned by Henry Pearman) 
    • Winner, supercar category (commendations for the 1997 Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution & 2010 Porsche 918 Spyder)

The winning car from Horsepower Hill, a new event for 2018, was a 2013 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. Highlighting the opportunity in its inaugural year, the new hill challenge provided concours’ owners and specially-selected guests the chance to burn rubber in their own cars.

A grand total of 54 vehicles were exhibited over the two-day edition, including cars from the very dawn of motoring up to the modern day. One of the highlights arrived in the form of a separate McLaren Formula One exhibition, alongside the aviation concours featuring aircraft from 1936 to 2014.

Sir Tim Boughton, Lee Proudfoot and Vic Norman – the event’s aviation judges – awarded the Hanna Aviation Trophy to the 1952 Morane-Saulnier 315 with commendations for the 1936 Percival Mew Gull and the 1937 De Havilland 90 Dragonfly.

Commenting on the success of this year’s concours, Max Hunt, chairman of the judging panel, said: 'Our third concours has attracted record crowds to see our best ever line up yet. A huge thank you to all the owners and visitors for making this year’s concours such a success.'
