DEL MAR, CALIFORNIA — The Del Mar Concours d’Elegance is held at one of the world’s most beautiful locations, the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Racetrack, on the water in Solana Beach, just north of San Diego, California.
Founded in the late 1930s by horse racing enthusiasts led by legendary crooner Bing Crosby, Del Mar has emerged as one of the great beachfront locations worldwide. The facility plays home to horse racing from July to September annually, and is also home to the San Diego County Fair, along with dozens of special events year round.
Del Mar is a perfect location for a Concours d’Elegance , with oceanfront beauty matched only by the automotive excellence sure to be on display this October 21, 2012. As Bing Crosby himself once sang, Del Mar is “where the turf meets the surf.”
On Sunday, October 21, 2012, the Concours d’Elegance returns to the Del Mar Race Track Paddock in Del Mar (CA). For the third year in a row, the historic Race Track Paddock will be transformed into a living museum befitting the finest classic, antique and historically significant automobiles in the world. Ed Gilbertson (Chief Judge) from the world renown Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance, said, “this is the perfect place for a venue that showcases horses and horsepower.” On Sunday, October 21st, the Del Mar Race Track Paddock will be all about horsepower — the fastest, the smoothest, the rarest and the most magnificent in design.
For 2012, the marquees will be all about power and speed. To celebrate the third year, Del Mar Concours CEO and Chairman, Tim Henry, has designated both V16 classics and Shelby Automobiles as the featured marquees.
