Event requirements


The Concours will be held Saturday morning from 9:00-11:00 AM. Car staging and final prep will be from 7:00-8:45 AM, with judging starting promptly at 9:00 AM. Trophies will be awarded at the Awards Banquet.

A Concours is a competitive car show to award recognition to the owners of automobiles that are best prepared and presented. There are many classes, but we break them down into three main groups: “Street”“Touring Group One”, and “Touring Group Two".  For more information about classes please see Concours Class Descriptions. This also appears later in the registration process.

“Street” (also called "Wash and Shine"): This involves the judging of the car's interior and exterior only (no engine, trunk, or undercarriage). Originality is not a consideration, only cleanliness. "Street" is the class for those interested in showing their cars with some preparation, but not HOURS of meticulous cleaning. 

“Touring Group One”: This judging category takes into consideration the interior, exterior, engine, and storage compartments. The judges look for cleanliness, quality of preparation, lack of damage, and presentation. 

“Touring Group Two”: This judging category takes into consideration the interior, exterior, and storage compartments, and applies to newer Porsches where the engine is not readily accessible.


Drive Tour/Gimmick Rally

This year you have the option during registration to choose if you would like to participate in an adventurous guided tour or a gimmick rally!  

What is a Gimmick Rally you ask?  


For help selecting a class please see Autocross Classes. This also appears later in the registration process.  The autoocross will be held at the Greeneville Airport frrom 9:00 am - 2:00 pm. Trophies will be awarded after the autocross ends.
