Concours South Africa postponed until 2021
Johannesburg - Concourse South Africa has been cancelled for 2020, but its organisers say it will be business as usual in 2021.
The Concours event, held at Steyn City, is said to be the ultimate celebration of luxury living and automotive style. The 2020 Concours SA was set to be held between 28 and 30 August, and just two weeks ago its organisers issued a statement confirming that they intended to go ahead with the show, but would monitor the Covid-19 situation closely.
However, given the current uncertainty regarding the duration of this crisis, the organisers have decided to postpone the 2020 event.
“This crucial decision was made in conjunction with our partners, sponsors and stakeholders,” the organisers said.
“As a result of the scale of the current situation, we cannot be certain that - even in the latter part of the year - it will be safe to proceed with our event.
“We can assure all entrants, hospitality partners and enthusiasts that Concours South Africa will be back in 2021 - bigger, better and stronger.”
The last Concours South Africa was held on Spring Day 2019, where the Best of Show award went to a gleaming Ferrari Dino 246 GT which narrowly beat a very close field at Steyn City Parkland Residence.
Second place went to a Brilliant Red BMW 325iS while the 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint of Neville Forssman came in a very close third.
This high-end event blends collector cars with stylish fashion, and sumptuous food and fine wines. Entries are limited to the top 100 classic cars in the country.
