The Concours Year 2022
THE DAWN OF A NEW YEAR
brought a new type of concours — the Motorcar Cavalcade, a brand-new event for 2022. Proceedings began on Saturday with the Miami Speed and Style Rally, on which concours entrants toured local Miami landmarks.
The concours itself took place on the Sunday, with more than 90 cars displayed on the show field. Rather than marque, model or era-specific classes, the event placed cars from different generations and eras up against each other in specific categories. These were Sound, Finishes, Cockpit, Dashboard, Lights, Glass, Doors, Mirrors, Paint, Power and Utility. The aim was to break down barriers, allowing different groups of automobile people to mix with each other and learn new things.
The Best in Show award was split into two: the modem era was represented by Ariane Dart’s Pagani Huayra Roadster BC, while the classic era award went to Richard Gorman’s 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental, which was bodied by Gurney Nutting. Away from the cars, visitors enjoyed top-class music, as well as exquisite culinary and mixology opportunities via dedicated pavilions in a garden party-inspired setting.
“The Motorcarcar Cavalcade is a celebration of automobiles and the people who love them, uniting the world of cars cuisine and lifestyle.” said Jason Wenig, Cavalcade co-executive director.
“We’re proud to partner with the Warren Henry Auto Group as we create an extraordinary event appealing to both car lovers and those who appreciate luxury and elegance.”
