A special display of rare and priceless vintage cars is set to be one of the off-track highlights of this year’s Gold Cup event. Sunday’s (28 August) Concours d’Esprit will be a celebration of the spirit of craftsman-built historic sports-cars.
The Cheshire Concours d’Esprit celebrates the spirit of special sports-cars with a representative collection of famous sports-car marques from over 50 ago. Ranging from a 102-year-old Humber TT to a 1965 Aston Martin DB5, an extremely rare collection of vintage machinery will be on display on Sunday.
Unlike many concours displays, these cars are full of character and wear their history with pride. Every car will be accompanied by a display panel telling the unique and fascinating story of its design, competition history, ownership or originality.
Amongst the display of more than 35 cars will be some very special exhibits, including:

South Cheshire Raiders founder and concours organiser, Tim Gresty said: “Our Concours d’Esprit is a truly extra-ordinary collection of inspiring sports-cars, each well-used and with a fascinating story to tell. They are not selected because they are regularly polished, or kept in an isolated cocoon. Every one is a character, worthy of the description ‘spirited’.”
The Concours Display will take place in the exclusive railed area in front of the Fogarty Moss Centre, with a full-circuit track parade at 11.30am.
