It‘s the only one of its kind in the world: The „International Preservation Concours“. Here, it is not the highly polished classic cars that vie for the jury‘s favour, but classic motorcycles and automobiles that have preserved their unrestored original condition, and in doing so tell true stories. The second edition of this unique competition begins at 10 a.m. on Sunday, April 2nd 2017, as part of the Warm-Up 3 event for MOTORWORLD München.
And this time around, there will be even more motoring gems to admire than at the inaugural event: 32 vehicles, among them true rarities such as a 1922 Alfa Romeo RL S, a 1954 Fuldamobil NWF 200, a 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster, and a 1968 Alfa Romeo Alfetta 2000 Blindata – a real Mafia car. Parking and admission are free of charge at the third, open-marque meeting of classic cars and modern classics, classic motorcycles and super cars at MOTORWORLD München.
The competition categories themselves indicate that the International Preservation Concours is all about real, unadulterated history. Among them: „Charleston – Pre-War Cars“, „Gentlemen’s Toys – Post-War Sports Cars“, „Motorcycles of the 60s & 70s“. All vehicles over 40 years of age that have been kept in their original condition are eligible to take part. That means auto – mobiles whose history is clearly evident, and where possible with comprehensive documentation (purchase agreement, service invoices, typical contemporary accessories, etc.). The Concours, which was initiated by the Munich-based club Classics vor Charity e. V., stays abreast of the trend towards an increasing popularity among both collectors and investors for classic vehicles in their original condition. The 32 registered vehicles will be coming under the strict gaze of the high-calibre, international jury chaired by classic car expert Kay MacKenneth.
Countless motoring treasures
And as if that wasn‘t enough. Anybody who attended the first two Warm-Up events for MOTORWORLD München will know that there will be countless motoring treasures to marvel at this time around as well. For everybody who comes with his own enthusiast‘s vehicle will become part of this fascinating world. Accompanied by professional commentaries as soon as they drive onto the grounds, the collectors‘ automobiles will be able to park on specially reserved areas. This will both stylishly and informatively accentuate just how a lively, attractive, and open mobility centre and event ensemble will emerge from the former railway repair shop in Freimann by 2018 – MOTORWORLD München.
