Heveningham Concours has announced that its fifth annual motorsport and aviation event will now take place in the summer of 2022 as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The event, which was also sadly cancelled last year due to the pandemic, hosts 50 or more of the worldâ€™s most beautiful cars, while the aviation concours features around a dozen equally rare propeller planes at Heveningham Hall in Suffolk.
Chairman of the motorsport judging panel, Max Hunt, said: â€œWith huge regret and in light of the ongoing uncertainty, we have taken the decision to cancel this yearâ€™s concours and country fair, which were due to take place inÂ June. We are determined to look ahead to 2022 and will focus on hosting an extra special event â€“ even by our standards! Thank you for your continued support and letâ€™s look forward to better times ahead.â€
Each year, the judges award Laurence Edwards-designed bronze trophies in the following classes: post-war, pre-war, supercar, plus the Hanna Aviation Trophy to the best plane.
Thereâ€™s also a separate prize for the winner of Horsepower Hill, a timed sprint along the estateâ€™s main drive that takes place on both days and features its own supercar paddock and drifting area. Spectators are at the heart of the action, with grandstands overlooking a spectacle not to be missed.
As ever, all proceeds go to charity, plus the concours also provides a full scholarship for a student to undertake a post-graduate MA in Intelligent Mobility at the Royal College of Art.
Heveningham Concours takes place at the same time as the long-standing Country Fair that attracts around 20,000 people annually, again with all monies going to charity.
