History

What is the Intermarque Concours d'Elegance?

  • A celebration of classic and marque cars
  • Competitions based on presentation, appearance, originality and excellence

The MG Car Club launched the first Intermarque Concours d'Elegance at the sunken gardens, Cornwall Park on December 1, 1972. Then as now, the event was an inter-club affair and MG became the first winner of the Inter-Club Challenge Shield. Honours also went to Alvis, Studebaker, Jowett, Riley, and Citroen Car Clubs.

Until 1981 MG and Jaguar dominated the Cornwall Park event. Then Porsche took the Shield and moved the rapidly growing show to Ellerslie. Today over 65 car clubs, leading new vehicle dealerships, sponsors and the restoration industry support the event.

Each year thousands of car enthusiasts and those who are simply curious spend the day browsing round the displays. There are now more honours - ranging from the coveted Intermarque Team Shield to Masters Class for individual vehicles and Best Display - the theme for which this year is "Love Story"

Vehicles not only come from around the country but also the world - in 2003 for example we welcomed 27 Alvis owners and their cars from the UK.

It takes almost a year to put a show like this together. The winning club each year hosts the subsequent event with the support of other leading clubs.

Continuity, procedure and judging is overseen by TACCOC, the Thoroughbred and Classic Car owners Club. The organising committee meets monthly.

Vehicles displayed will range from the early '20s through to the latest modern exotics, and will vary from Micro cars through to Utes and the most exotic cars in New Zealand.

Intermarque Concours around the world

A celebration of classic and marque cars - competitions based on presentation, appearance, originality and excellence. In the United States and Europe, the attendance at such events is in the hundreds of thousands, the investment measured in millions.

Clearly New Zealand cannot hope to emulate such extravagant affairs, but with committed imaginative sponsors and the impressive foundations that we currently have, The New Zealand Classic Car Weekend and Intermarque Concours events will be the Blue Riband events of the New Zealand motoring calendar.
