Over 180 classic cars expected at Fawley Hill Concours d’Elegance

9th May 2016

More than 180 cars are due to attend the Fawley Hill Concours d’Elegance for the TOTAL Trophy, presented by international auctioneers COYS at this year’s steam and vintage weekend, which takes place between Friday 20th May and Sunday 22nd May.


On all three days over the weekend, COYS alongside their corporate partners leading International oil and gas company TOTAL, will be providing a fabulous hand-picked selection of very high quality classic cars, which will all be competing for the People’s Choice award, the TOTAL trophy.


On each day the public will be asked to choose the classic car that they have enjoyed the most at the event and the winner will be presented with a TOTAL trophy for the day with runners up being given goody bags from the oil company.


Marc Smith, General Manager TOTAL Lubricants UK, said: “TOTAL is becoming more and more involved in the world of classic cars, which is part of our history with brands such as ELF and over the next couple of months we will be making some major announcements about how we plan to support this important market.”


He added: “We are delighted to be supporting the event at Fawley Hill. It is a fantastic opportunity for classic car owners to meet up and it has attracted an eclectic list of vehicles.”


Chris Routledge, CEO of COYS, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Sir William and Lady Judy McAlpine at this event. It is one of the ‘secret gems’ of the British transport calendar and one of the few occasions when motoring and steam enthusiasts can enjoy first hand Sir William’s legendary railway, which runs around the estate.”


Lady Judy McAlpine said: “ We have a fantastic collection of vehicles, coming to a great party at one of the wackiest estates in the country. There is still room for more classic cars. All owners have to do is to go to the website (www.fawleyhill.co.uk) and register under ‘entry forms.’ They will have a great time and be helping some of the best small charities in the country.”
