The Judges

Our ICJAG judging panel, led by President of the Jury Ed Gilbertson, will preside over the show field with high scrutiny and attention to detail before awarding Class Winners, Runners-Up and the ultimate accolade of Best of Show. All are experts in their respective fields with unparalleled knowledge of classic cars.

On the following day, the Honorary Judges take over – led by Derek Bell MBE. Honorary Awards are more subjective, focusing on the elegance and presence of the cars, rather than the nuts and bolts.

Tour Privé

Taking place over two days (Monday 21st – Tuesday 22nd September), Tour Privé is the perfect kick-off to your Salon Privé Concours Experience. Open now to accommodate previous Concours entrants as well as those from the current year, it’s a fantastic and spirited affair, encouraging new friends and reuniting old.

Tour Details


Taking home silverware is hugely rewarding for both owners and restorers. In 2019, 47 prizes were awarded during the Salon Privé Concours d’Elégance, celebrating the history, provenance and presentation of treasured classics.

In 2019, the accolade of Best of Show was won by the 1948 Talbot Lago T26 GS Fastback Coupé. Bodied by Figoni, this stunning one-of-one has undergone a full restoration in recent years. The current owners, Robert & Petra Kudela, love to drive the car and drove it on Tour Privé in 2019.
