NO INCREASE IN ENTRY FEES
There has been no increase in the entry fees for the 2015 CBA Africa Concours d’Elegance. The normal entry fee remains 3,500 shillings per vehicles and competitors entering more than one vehicle will pay a fee of 3,000 shillings for each of the additional entries.
MORE AWARDS FOR NEWCOMERS
To continue developing the mix of seasoned and new competitors and to bring to the Concours cars and motorcycles which have not been seen before at the Nairobi Racecourse additional prizes have been introduced for 2015.
Already the highest placed newcomers are recognised by the presentation of the Peter Hughes Memorial trophies and cash prizes and this year there are awards for the best car and motorcycle making a first appearance at the Racecourse, or contesting the Concourse after an interval of five years, or longer. There will also be prizes for the car and motorcycle competitors who have made the greatest improvement since the previous year’s Concours.
SEARCHING FOR A CLASSIC?
If you are searching for a classic car it may be worthwhile to look at three which are on offer in Mombasa. There are being sold by Julian Fay who can be contacted by phoning 0734337785.
UGANDA VINTAGE AND CLASSIC AUTO SHOW
This year’s Uganda Vintage and Classic Auto Show (the Uganda equivalent of the CBA Africa Concours d’Elegance) will be held at the Sheraton Gardens in Kampala on Saturday July 11th. This worthwhile event is run by a group of cheerful hardworking motoring enthusiasts who have involved Michael Hughes, Brian Nicol, Peter Wanday and Bob Dewar in previous years.
