Concours in the Village Application

Concours Applications for 2024 are now open, we look forward to seeing you in May!

Please use the class list at the right for your reference. Applications will be reviewed by the Selection Committee and an application does not guarantee entry. If your car is approved, one of the staff will contact you directly with registration information. Approvals do take time for our committee to review, please be patient as we review your entry.

The ‘Concours in the Village’ at the Sandhills Motoring Expo uses ‘French judging’ when determining the best vehicles on display. As a bit of background, the term ‘Concours d’Elegance’ is French, which roughly translates to ‘competition of elegance.’ As such, the first events of this sort were held in France in the early 1900s as transportation began to transition from horses to horsepower. Those early events were largely about the overall impression of the vehicle, and that led to the use of the term ‘French judging’ throughout the Concours world. This, of course, is not the only type of Concours judging, but it is the one that is most relevant to the Sandhills Motoring Expo.

We thank you for your continued support!
