Our Chapter’s Concours has classes for everyone. So if you think that a Concours is only for those people who trailer their car and never drive it, think again! Even your daily driver or your autocross car is eligible to participate, and all participants are eligible to win awards. The field always includes a great selection of cars, from classics to the latest models, including MINIs too! So there is a classification for everyone.
If you belong to a specialty BMW/MINI club, we encourage you to make Concours a special day for your entire group. In the past we’ve hosted gatherings of 2002s, and M3s that made the event even more interesting. We also encourage BMW CCA members from other Chapters to drive in for the day to help celebrate all things BMW. The only thing you need to do is register on line, so we know you’re coming. A full list of event categories and registration guidelines will be announced in on the Chapter website and in the Boston Bimmer, so watch for full details.
In 2011, the Boston Chapter added a Show & Shine event in Rhode Island and welcomed a full field of cars, but rain and an unexpected Fall snow storm kept the annual Concours d’Elegance and Show & Shine from happening in 2011. However, the Concours team is already planning the 2012 event and there is talk that it may be held in the spring or summer so watch for updates on line and in the Boston Bimmer.
The Concours coordinators also invite you to help manage this year’s event. It’s a great way to meet members, to learn how car competitions are judged and to have a lot of fun along the way! Look for an email link on the Chapter website to contact a team member.
