|Dear Friend of the Concorso,|
The days directly before the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este are always full of excitement. All the signs are pointing towards a wonderful start and the first Historic Cars have already arrived at the venue. Everywhere abounds with anticipation and expectation for the upcoming weekend.
Many participants have just driven in from the Prelude Tour, which offered a completely new route this year. The spectacular field started off in the heart of Milan’s metropolis and drove along a picturesque route to Cernobbio, until the cars arrived on the shores of Lake Como.
We are very much looking forward to the gates of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este being thrown open on Saturday morning. More than 50 outstanding Historic Cars will represent a hugely varied range of different chapters in the history of the automobile. Once again this year, the field of contestants is extremely diverse. It focuses on fascinating and maybe even unexpected thematic areas.
It is our pleasure to offer you an initial overview. If you already want to find out today about the seven classes making up the contest in which the participants will be competing this year, you can simply click on this Link.We all value the incomparable tradition of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.
The roots of the contest extend back to 1929 when the contours of the automobile had achieved remarkable finesse and enormous cultural status. At the same time, we are also accustomed to moving with the times – and we therefore cordially invite you to access our new app free of charge that we are providing for your iPhones and Android devices.
The app keeps you fully up to date and informed at all times. It’s also there for those fans who are unable to be present in Cernobbio, and at 14.00 on Saturday the world-famous parade will be sent directly to your screen in livestream for the first time.
On Sunday, you will even be able to experience the winners’ ceremony on the app. And on our website, you will be able to find out all about the event at first hand – including details and backgrounds for each participating Historic Car or the current status of the event.
Wherever and however you follow the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, we would like to wish you enjoyment and exciting insights into the unique gathering of automobile jewels from all over the world. We would be delighted to welcome you in one form or the other.
With our very warmest wishes,
Your Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este Team
