The concours which takes place on August 26, 2018 (the fourth Sunday of the month) located on south Third St. in Geneva Illinois is a 1 day event. The Chicago Region has asked to participate and will be providing race and sports cars to be on display during the concours. The Region’s display will be our own car show within the Geneva Concours. We will have five trophy categories with one soliciting the general viewing public to vote for their favorite SCCA entered car. The Region will also be selecting one vehicle from our display to be a recipient of the prestigious Carl Benz Trophy from the Geneva Concours d’Elegance. This vehicle will be presented the trophy during the concours trophy presentation that afternoon along with all of the concours winners. All vehicles in the Region’s display will need to be in place by 9:00 am and remain on display until 4:00 pm. The event takes place rain or shine, and secure tow vehicle parking is available.
This event will be an invitation only event and we hope you will be able to support us.
