NZ’s Premier Classic Car Show since 1972

The second Sunday in February has become a highlight in every New Zealand car lover’s calendar.  Thousands of car enthusiasts visit Ellerslie Racecourse to enjoy this country’s biggest lineup of classics – many of them regarded among the world’s best restorations.

The Intermarque Concours d’Elegance is central to the show.  It celebrates classic cars with competitions of an international standard based on presentation, cleanliness, condition, originality, and excellence.  The coveted awards include the Intermarque Team Shield for club teams of two, Masters Class for individual entries, and Best “Survivor”.

Aside from the Concours cars and a number of exciting new events, about 80 car clubs will create the biggest display of car marques from all around the globe.  These displays compete for the title of “Best Club Display”.

Back for next year (the COVID postponed 2022 show) are attractions introduced last show: the 50-50-50 competition for younger cars and younger entrants.

New for the next show will be:

A display of rally cars
A special display of Jaguars – celebrating 100 years of production.

Displayed vehicles range from the early 1900s, through to the latest modern exotics.  Vehicles range from micros to high-performance supercars.  The event is renowned for the diversity of cars on show – from British, European, and American marques through to Japanese, Australian, and even sometimes New Zealand made cars.

Tickets are $20 on the day but check out iticket later in the year for early bird tickets.

Watch the judging from 10am in the new judging arena, and then the prize giving at 2pm in the Newmarket Room before checking out the winning cars with their rosettes & trophies from 3pm.

Food and drink are available or bring a picnic.  The event is held rain or shine but sorry no dogs are allowed at Ellerslie Racecourse.

As previously, there are also the Tours d’Elegance road tours for classic cars to participate in a delightful drive around local areas with fellow classic car enthusiasts on Saturday the 11th of February, the day before the show.
