World Best 60 Cars Diamond Jubilee Celebration


Sixty of the most stunning concours d’elegance condition cars from around the world will help celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a spectacular display to be held in the quadrangle of Windsor Castle.

The Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance open to the public on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September 2012, will be one of the most impressive and important events in the motoring calendar ever. It will be complemented by a Jubilee Tour of Elegance from London to Windsor Castle on Sunday 9 September.

The 60 cars for the Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance are coming from around the world including the USA, Europe, Argentina and, of course, Britain. Only vehicles of the very highest show standards have been invited and this will be a unique event. The display will be open to the public on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September with tickets available from £25 each – all proceeds go to charity.

In addition to the Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance, on Sunday 9 September a Jubilee Tour of Elegance, in association with Octane magazine, will depart from central London and take a specially chosen route to Windsor. The final approach will include a spectacular drive up to Windsor Castle. Classic and performance cars will be selected from 1952 to date, representing each year of Her Majesty the Queen’s reign. Entrants on the Jubilee Tour of Elegance will have free access to the Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance in return for a donation, plus brunch en-route.
