Brand new calendar of auctions in 2016-2017 also including: Schloss Dyck, Mondial de l’Automobile, Coys at Alexandra Palace and Coys at Olympia


Entries are invited


International auctioneers Coys are delighted to announce an exciting new auction to be held on Thursday 8th September 2016 in the heart of the Sussex Downs within the historic grounds of Fontwell House, just a few furlongs from the world-class Goodwood Revival meeting.


The first week of September is set to be one of the most important weeks in the British classic motoring calendar, with a significant international Concours of Elegance at Windsor Castle, major auctions in London and Sussex, and what is considered the world’s greatest historic race meeting taking place at Goodwood on September 9-10-11.


Only a few miles up the road from the action at Goodwood, the Coys ‘Thoroughbreds and Vintage at Fontwell’ auction will take place in the elegant gardens of Fontwell House, behind the traditional horse racing course.


Chris Routledge, CEO of Coys, said: “Early September is very much the British equivalent of events taking place on the Monterey peninsula in August with a world-class concours, international auctions and fantastic historic racing at Goodwood; all running throughout the week and all held within the South East of England.


“We are delighted to announce this auction in the heart of Sussex and to be in the same orbit as other auction houses around these exciting series of events.”


The ‘Thoroughbreds and Vintage at Fontwell’ sale is the latest addition to Coys calendar of exciting new auctions in 2016-2017, including: Schloss Dyck in Germany (August 6th), Mondial de l’Automobile in Paris (October 8th), Coys at Alexandra Palace in London as exclusive auction partners of the Classic & Sports Car Show (October 29th) and Coys at Olympia in London (February 18th).


All interested parties are invited to contact Coys to ensure they can take part in these series of auctions.
