Third annual Heveningham Hall Concours confirmed
Grand Suffolk venue will host Aviation and Motorsport Concours d’Elegance on June 30 and July 1, 2018 – complete with Horsepower Hill
Following on from last year’s highly successful second Concours d’Elegance, Heveningham Hall has announced that 2018’s experience will take place on Saturday June 30 and Sunday July 1. The aviation and motorsport show will be staged alongside the Suffolk estate’s long-standing country fair, an annual event held in the Grade 1-listed Georgian mansion’s 5000-acre parkland.
For a third time, the concours will see 50 of the world’s most iconic automobiles exhibited against the exquisite backdrop. And if that isn’t enough eye candy for one day, an aviation concours simultaneously takes place on-site. Following its inaugural event last year, this will feature some of the world’s rarest aeroplanes.
There is a new event for 2018 should stationary vehicles leave you yearning for more. Horsepower Hill will provide concours owners and special guests the opportunity to run their vehicles in a timed burnout.
Meanwhile, the Heveningham Tour is set to make a return, following a positive response to 2017’s inaugural event. This found 25 guests and classic vehicle owners – behind the wheel of such exotica as a 1951 Ferrari 212 Barchetta, 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Corse and 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta – enjoying the glorious Suffolk countryside before taking a breather with a clay-pigeon shoot and ‘Hillbilly’ barbecue. The route for 2018 will be announced later in the year, but is confirmed to cover 50 miles and take place on Friday June 29.
As with 2017’s event, the Concours d’Elegance is held in association with Bonhams auctioneer, Bremont watches and Gusbourne wines, with all proceeds raised going to charity. The concours is again also working alongside the Royal College of Art. The Heveningham Hall Concours RCA Automotive Design Scholarship awards one student a scholarship to cover fees and living expenses for the 15-month MA Automotive Design course, which takes place in London.
‘The support shown to the concours over the past two years has been amazing,’ said Max Hunt, the chairman of the concours judging panel. ‘This year we are upping the ante again with the introduction of Horsepower Hill and a larger aviation concours, and by continuing to ensure that the provenance of the cars on display remains second to none.’
Around 20,000 visitors are expected to descend on the grounds during the show, with enthusiasts attracted to the main-ring events, aerobatic displays and local crafts. Over £700,000 has been raised for charity from previous events. You can find out more information on the Heveningham Hall official website and the Heveningham Hall Concours site.
