The annual UCR Concours d’Elegance and Show & Shine event is a GO with a return to the grounds of the newly named WUNDEBA at 4448 Guelph Line, Burlington, ON L7P 0N2 (formerly Moser’s Grill) on Guelph Line in Burlington, on Sunday, September 6th, from 9am to 2pm.
This is a gorgeous property, where we held a very fun and popular event two years ago, featuring slight changes in elevation and a mature landscape, complete with a pond and beautiful large trees. Along with the vistas of the nearby Niagara Escarpment, this scenic backdrop is the perfect setting to show off our beautiful cars.
Spectators are welcome free of charge to take in the UCR Concours, but we urge you to enter your car for a very low registration fee of just twenty bucks paid at the gate, and take part in all of the fun! Don’t be shy! Spectator parking issues have been addressed for this year as well.
Wundeba Restaurant, Café & Patio is a new venture by Rejuvenating Spring and promises us some great little culinary delights while we meet and greet with old and new friends and admire the cars on hand.
Just as last year, there will be no pre-registration, all Porsches are welcome and entrants will pay a super-low price of only 20 Dollars per car right at the gate by cash or cheque and, ALL participants will leave the event as winners and with a beautiful memento and goodie bag to take home.
All Porsche cars are welcome, from 356 to Macan, and will be divided into 21 separate classes. Also welcome are Special Interest and Competition Porsche Cars. Non-PCA members are welcome to enter their cars in the event too! However, we will not accept replica cars or other makes into the Concours competition.
Simply arrive just before 9am on the morning of September 6, pay the registration fee, and park your car in the allocated area for your Porsche model and year, as directed by our volunteers. As usual, there will be Peer-Judging with “Winners” and “Runners-up” in each of the 21 classes, with trophies awarded, plus we will have a People’s Choice Award Trophy as selected by all participants and spectators.
Additionally, as it was so well received over the past two years, the special “Full-Concours” Judged program will be offered again this year as well, at an additional $20.00 charge. In order to allow the judges sufficient time to do a thorough “Concours” level inspection on each vehicle, only the first five cars registered on the day of the event in three specific categories as specified below for a total of 15 cars will be accepted into this program. Concours Score Certificates will be issued to these participants and trophies awarded to Class Winners and Runners-Up.
Full-Concours cars must be positioned in place by no later than 9am, when the judging will begin. So, arrive no later than 8:30am if you wish to participate in this special category. ALL judging will end at noon sharp.
Writes head judge, Bruce Farrow: “The Judged Class is back!”
The “Judged Class” was wildly popular and even a bit controversial at the 2013 and 2014 UCR Concours events. Hopefully, entrants learned a few things from that and last year’s event and are ready to present their cars in the best condition that they can be.
There will again be three judged classes this year with a limit of 5 cars per class. The classes are:
1949-1973 “Vintage”; 1974-1998 “Historic”; 1999-2016 “Contemporary”.
Cars will be screened for entry into the judged class as they drive into the event at the registration area – first come, first served.
Judged class cars will be identified with a windshield medallion and they can be in the general Peer-Judging and People’s Choice grouping displays.
At the end of the day, the “Best in Show – Judged Classes” will be awarded by a representative of Pfaff Autoworks.
This is a fun family event in a very relaxed setting, and a time to catch up with old and new Porsche buddies and speak our common language: Porsche. An extremely nice variety of food to suit every taste and orientation will be available from our host, WUNDEBA – from breakfast to lunch – and promises to be a delight in itself.
So, get ready to shine up your baby for September 6th and follow news on the UCR website for additional details as they unfold. We’ll see you at THE Porsche Gathering of the Season!
