About the Concours 2024

Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, Oxfordshire OX20 1UL | 28 August - 31 August 2024

Why Salon Privé?

Every car entered in the Salon Privé Concours 2024  has a story – whether it be of racing pedigree, a prestigious former owner or perhaps a barn find followed by an impeccable restoration – and so all are special. With the backdrop of Blenheim Palace and a panel of the world’s most experienced and knowledgeable Concours experts examining the carefully-curated Show Field, there is no better place for these stories to be told than Salon Privé.

The Concours Entrant Experience

Our exquisite three-day programme for Concours entrants and their guest comprises a scenic driving tour, exclusive lunches and afternoon teas, private drinks receptions and a Black Tie celebration dinner in the Palace, with beautiful parades and prize-giving peppered throughout. The 2024 Concours will truly be something to remember, whether you’re a veteran supporter of Salon Privé or planning to join us for the first time.

Selection and Judging

We believe the only way to hold a legitimate and trusted Concours is to arrange entries by Class and judge each one with relevant marque experts. In doing so, all cars are fairly judged amongst cars from the correct period, and by judges who are qualified to do so. Naturally, winning a class prize at an ICJAG judged event could add considerable value to your car too. That honour remains in your car’s history file, a professional endorsement of quality.

ICJAG Judging

Salon Privé is an ICJAG Plus event – and the only concours in the UK to be judged by an ICJAG jury. ICJAG, or the International Chief Judge Advisory Group, is the gold standard of historic car judging, used across the very best concours lawns across the globe. Our team of illustrious marque-specialist judges take on the exacting task of evaluating all the cars presented on the South Lawn of Blenheim Palace.

Taking home silverware is hugely rewarding for both owners and restorers and the Salon Privé Concours celebrates the history, provenance and presentation of treasured classics.

Trophies are presented during celebratory parades, during which your car is presented to an eager audience. Class and Honorary Awards are presented alongside a special few awarded by the Duke of Marlborough, our Chairman and the guests of Salon Privé, followed by the finale, Best of Show Award.
