2019 Geneva Concours d’Elegance

Chicago Region SCCA is back for a second year at the Geneva Concours d’Elegance, August 25th, 2019

This year is the 75thanniversary of the Sports Car Club of America and the Chicago Region SCCA will be celebrating this milestone at the Geneva Concours d’Elegance. The Geneva Concours has taken place for over a decade and regularly draws over 175 classics, exotics and racecars. The Concours is a Not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization promoting the art of the automobile to benefit the LIVINGWELL Cancer Resource Center, in Geneva, Illinois.

The concours on August 25, 2019 (the fourth Sunday of the month) is a one day event located on south Third St. in Geneva, Illinois.  The Chicago Region will again also be conducting our own concours on that day, the “Concours for Sports Cars”.  The Region’s concours will be our own car show within the Geneva Concours. We will have five trophy categories and the Chicago Region will also be selecting one vehicle from our display to be a recipient of the prestigious Carl Benz Trophy from the Geneva Concours d’Elegance.  All vehicles in the Region’s display will need to be in place by 9:00 am and remain on display until 4:00 pm.  The event takes place rain or shine, and secure tow vehicle parking is available. 

The Chicago Region’s Activities Committee will conduct the entry selection process based on information provide on the 2019 Concours for Sports Cars Registration Form.  In order to be selected for the display you will be required to complete a registration form and provide some written history and a photograph of the vehicle. There are no entry fees for this event, the Chicago Region will be paying all entry fees and we are providing lunch for all of our participants.  The Region’s Activities Committee will be contacting you as we begin our selections in July 2019 and will provide additional details of the event. The Chicago Region SCCA is looking forward to this very significant automobile event, and truly hope you can make the commitment and join us as well.
