Vehicle acceptance to the Motorcar Cavalcade is conducted by our Selection Committee. Due to the unique nature of this Concours, which celebrates any and every distinguished vehicle—including current production models—anyone may submit any car for consideration. However, the Selection Committee will only accept cars that stand out from the rest; truly special, significant, newsworthy, distinguished, or unique vehicles.
Completely original cars, perfectly-restored vehicles, remarkable customs, cars with incredible provenance, milestone cars, record breakers, record-setters, the rare and the exotic—all are welcome for consideration.
Our classes are tailored to the incredible diversity and evolution of the automobile— and to celebrate them in their finest form. Our Classes for 2023 can be found here. During the submission process, you will be asked what class you would like your car to compete in. If you are unsure, you may elect to have the Selection Committee place your car in the class they feel most appropriate. Please note that the Selection Committee may place your car in a class other than the one you’ve specified if deemed in the best interest of your car, the respective class, or the entirety of the display of vehicles on the show field.
Our unique approach of combining and contrasting old and new, foreign and domestic, original and custom—ensures a never-before-seen collection of spectacular and extraordinary cars; a palette of unique design, astonishing engineering and exquisite style.
Motorcar Cavalcade is a true Cavalcade of Cars to immerse oneself in.
“Although the cars are the stars of the show, equally as important is the social gathering—because the only thing more remarkable than these cars is the community they create; the camaraderie and fellowship of enthusiasts brought together through a unifying passion for automobiles and their desire to share it.”
Our car community is unmatched, and Motorcar Cavalcade celebrates it all—the heart and soul of the cars, and the people who covet them.
JUDGING & AWARDS
Motorcar Cavalcade will present some of the world’s finest automobiles, and to distinguish these vehicles, awards and recognition will be given to the vehicles that stand above the rest—the cars with that certain “X factor.”
Awards will be given per class—Best in Class and Runner Up—as well as “Major” awards as cars compete between classes based on special, predetermined criteria. To conclude our event, vehicles which have received an award will be eligible for one of our two coveted Modern or Classic Era, “Best of Show” awards.
During judging, you will be asked to tell us about your car, your relationship with the car and to describe any of its unique or stand out features—especially as they may relate to the class your car is competing in.
The Concours Committee will create groups of Judges who will be assigned to specific classes and Major award categories. It will be the Judges’ responsibility to find the cars that best exemplify the merits of, and the emotional connection between, the specific award they are responsible for and the cars on the field.
It is our goal to have remarkable people judging remarkable cars.
Our VIP Judges are just as unique as the cars they are judging; designers, historians, engineers, musicians, professors, CEO’s, artists and more—their unique perspective will provide an unbiased evaluation of the cars on the field. This approach allows seemingly disparate cars to be evaluated together, determining the best of the best in a whole new way.
Our VIP Judges will be assigned experienced Docent judges to help guide the process. These technically and traditionally trained Concours Judges will ensure knowledgeable and experienced hands are present to help with tie breakers, special considerations and other variables that surface when dealing with the complex task of choosing amongst the finest and most exquisite cars in the world.
In addition to our “Award Judges” and “Docent Judges,” our Chief Judge will oversee the showfield. All told, our judging and awards process is designed to allow a remarkable array of cars to compete against each other in the most dynamic, fair and enjoyable way—for entrants and spectators alike.
