Now in its twelfth year as a premier motor car event, the Radnor Hunt Concours d’Elegance was first organized in 1997 by Michael G. Tillson, III, a Governor of the Radnor Hunt and a recognized expert on the subject of classics, sports, and racing cars.
It was Michael Tillson’s concept to stage an elegant invitational classic car event on the spacious, historic grounds of the Radnor Hunt in Chester County that would recall the elegance and quality of such national events as the annual Pebble Beach Concours.
The concept of the event was far removed from the typical “car show.” It would be invitational, the cars would be carefully and individually selected and each car would represent an educational and aesthetic experience for guests. There would be a balance between historic, classic, sports and performance racing cars.
The weekend culminates on Sunday, September 14th with the 100 Motor Cars of Radnor Hunt – an assemblage of 100 of the world’s finest automobiles and a special display for 2008 honoring the Art & Colour of General Motors on its 100th Anniversary. They will also feature the beautiful creations of the Italian coachbuilder Zagato, and the motorcycle field will feature BSA.
Additionally, there will be an Automotive Art Show on Saturday, September 13th featuring the work of Roger Blanchard, a favorite of Sports Car Digest.
