KMSF sets September 30 date for classic cars’ beauty contest
By Feverpitch Reporters
The Kenya Motor Sport Federation (KMSF) has allocated September 30 as the date for the annual Africa Concours d’Elegance, which will be the 42nd in the series organised by the Alfa Romeo Owners Club.
The event will be held at the Nairobi Racecourse and there will be 12 classes for all makes and types of cars and eight for motorcycles.
Draft regulations have been submitted to the KMSF for approval and the organisers plan to launch the regulations in February together with the premiere of the Concours TV programme. The regulations follow the established pattern and there are only minor changes for this FIM AFRICA recognised and sanctioned event.
The main objectives of the Concours are to reward owners of well kept cars and motorcycles and give them the opportunity to showcase their highly prepared machines to spectators who flock to the Racecourse for this motoring and social occasion.
Plans are in hand to hold a Classic Car and Motorcycle Sale to help link the owners of unwanted classics (made in 1987, or earlier) with prospective buyers. An Auto Jumble was introduced last year and will be repeated at the 2012 Concours for the sale of classic car and motorcycle badges, parts and manuals.
There is growing international interest in the Africa Concours d’Elegance which will help to publicize Kenya as a holiday destination for motoring enthusiasts and special interest groups. A group of MG enthusiasts in Australia are planning to ship their cars to Cape Town for a motoring adventure through Africa which will include participation in the Concours on September 30. The convoy will feature a variety of MGA and MGB sports cars which will be a great spectator attraction at the Nairobi Racecourse.
