Concours Judging Clinic

We have filled up the Class!  If you would like to be placed on a the waitlist please contact Doug Geganto at or by phone at 404-754-995

Learn the nuances of judging a Mercedes-Benz vehicle from Pete Lesler, MBCA National Concours Chairman.  This class will prepare and certify you to judge in our annual Concours on September 19th.  The clinic will be held at Bud’s Benz 7773 Strickland St, Douglasville, GA 30134 starting at 10:00 a.m.  The class will be broken into two segments.  In the first segment you will learn the basics of judging, what to look for and the appropriate deductions for items that do not meet the standard as defined by Mercedes-Benz Club of America.

After Lunch everyone will get hands on experience judging all aspects of a vehicle including: exterior paint, interior, engine, and trunk.  You will be divided into teams to judge several vehicles in David Latham’s shop as well as several participant vehicles.  After each segment there will be a debriefing to discuss how each team scored the individual vehicle components.  During the judging segment, Pete will circulate to offer insight as to what to look for and review how each of the teams scored their vehicles.

With the possibility of the Atlanta Motoring Festival becoming a National Concours event in 2016, this would be a good opportunity to prepare to judge the Mercedes-Benz Marque in that event.  Space will be limited to the first 25 registrations so register early.   Entries after we reach 25 will be put on a waiting list.  If you register and cannot make it PLEASE notify the organizer so a spot can be opened for someone who may be on the waiting list. Lunch will be provided.  Menus will be available to pre-order your lunch when you arrive for the clinic. 

This is a FREE event.   Registration is required!
