Heveningham Hall Concours d’Elegance names entrants

6 April 2018

Heveningham Hall Concours d’Elegance has announced that some spectacular cars, including Nick Mason’s 1962 Ferrari 250GTO and a 1959 Maserati T61 Birdcage, have entered.

The emphasis of the event is on displaying 50 of the world’s finest and rarest cars on the grass terraces of one of Suffolk’s finest Georgian Mansions. Among the confirmed entries are the Ferrari 250GTO, which is one of just 36 ‘Omologato’ cars ever made; a 1959 Maserati T61 Birdcage; a 1927 Bugatti T37 Grand Prix; a 1931 Invicta Low Chassis speed model;  1949 Ferrari 166 Inter Superleggera; a 1952 Jaguar C-Type; a 1970 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona and a 1974 Lancia Stratos.

“Last year’s concours set a new standard in world-class entries displayed on the terraces with top honours in the pre-war category going to a 1935 Frazer Nash twin-supercharged single seater, a 1966 Ford GT40 in the post-war category and a 1971 Lamborghini Muira in best supercar plus an exacting recreation of a 1918 Sopwith Snipe winning the aviation concours,” said Max Hunt, chair of the judges. “This year we are pushing the bar even higher with some exceptional early entries with many more to come.”

Heveningham Hall’s concours takes place at the same time as the annual country fair which typically sees around 20,000 visitors descend on the historic estate for main ring events, aerobatic displays, shopping, local crafts and much, much more. Each year the Heveningham Hall Country Fair Trust distributes all proceeds to local charities.
