CONCOURS OF ELEGANCE
Hampton Court Palace

6th - 8th September 2019

Aston Martin Display

We have again been extended an invitation to the Concours of Elegance to display members’ Aston Martins in the Great Fountain Gardens of Hampton Court Palace on Saturday 7th September and in collaboration with the Royal Automobile Club.

We will once again assemble in the morning and in chronological order drive into the Palace grounds.

There will be a small cost per car (£25 which covers the car and driver) any passengers/guests will be expected to purchase admission tickets at a discounted rate of £25 per adult. The tickets cover full access to Hampton Court Palace and the State Apartments.

This year, Members who attend will receive a plaque, similar to the Concours winners plaques, in recognition and thanks for their attendance.

If you would like to be part of this display, tickets can be purchased on line at:

http://www.theticketfactory.com  using the discount code of AMOCVIP

Please note, this year we are limited to 40 cars and tickets are available on a first come first served basis.

 

Club Trophy

Four Aston Martins, owned by Club Members, will be judged by a panel of experts, including HRH Prince Michael of Kent, against other car clubs in the UK.

If you Aston Martin has had Concurs success in the past and you’d like to be considered for the Club Trophy, please let me know at concours@amoc.org.

Hello Mark, quick question, do we need to register our interest with you or does buying tickets using the AMOCVIP code automatically register us as one of the 40 places? I have just ordered my tickets so I would love to be part of the display in my DB MkIII.

Regards Rich...

Hello Rich

Buying tickets does indeed automatically register you as one of the 40 places. A few weeks before the event, I will email everyone with joining instructions for the day.

I am informed that there are only 10 places left now.[eek]

Great, looking forward to it. Tickets ordered, just need to explain to Mrs B that we are going to a car event the weekend before Goodwood Revival! [biggrin] At least Hampton Court has gardens too...

The 40 places for the parade and display have now all been sold.

_____________________________________________________________________

The Concours of Elegance continue to offer discounted admission tickets to any other members of the Club who may wish to attend but they will need to use a different promotional code ‘OCTANEVIP’.

Members would be able to purchase admission tickets at £25 (reduced from £40) and could park in either the VIP Car Park (£25) or the Green opposite the entrance to the Palace (£10).

That sounds worrying, bought my tickets yesterday and it now sounds as though we may not be included in the forty car allowance, how do we find out if we are in or not?

If you are included you will shortly get a request for the details of your car. If you don't get this -- oh dear!!!

Hi, I was wondering whether anyone knows where the VIP parking is within Hampton Court? Is it on the gravel as one approaches the Palace with the raised gardens on the left boarded by the bricked wall? Many thanks.

A spot has become available in the parade and display at Hampton Court, as a member has unfortunately had to drop out. He has offered his pass, for two people, to the Club, but asks if the cost he paid could be donated to Shelter as a charitable contribution. 

Please PM me if you would be interested in having these and I will connect you.

Looking forward to this Mark. Out of interest, the .pdf mentions a "mirror hanger" and "day passes". Presumably these will come directly from the event organisers?
