Concours in the Hills
February 10 @ 7:00 am - 3:00 pm
REGISTER NOW FOR THE FIFTH ANNUAL CONCOURS IN THE HILLS
The Fifth Annual Scuderia Concours in the Hills http://www.concoursinthehills.org auto show is scheduled for Saturday, February 10, 2018 at Fountain Park in Fountain Hills, Arizona! Our Porsche club grouping of cars last year had over 40 Porsches parked together (65 in 2016), and we want to exceed that number for the 5th Annual event!
Concours in the Hills is not a formal “white glove” event, but rather a casual and fun gathering of automobile enthusiasts in one of the most spectacular locations in the Phoenix area, on the green grass around the 560-foot fountain, one of the world’s tallest. The Concours showcases a very diverse range of ultra-high performance, luxury, and classic vehicles from both imported and domestic manufacturers. These range from multi-million dollar, 200 MPH plus cars to muscle cars, sports cars and pre-war classics, domestics and imports.
The 2017 show was opened by Bob Bondurant and Peter Brock. Awards were given for Best Import, Best Domestic, Best of Show and for any club entering more than ten vehicles of any one brand. Voting is done by the exhibitors themselves. The Concours is supported by the leading car clubs of Arizona representing Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, McLaren, Maserati, Jaguar, Corvette, Viper, Ford GT, Lotus, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Alfa Romeo, DeTomaso, DeLorean, Mustang, Cadillac and others.
In 2017, they had 647 cars, 71 sponsors, about 15,000 spectators and raised $90,000 for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale.
Our Porsche club will have a roped-off dedicated area, so the organizers need to know how many of you plan to participate. They have increased the display area for both exhibitors and sponsors so there should be no crowding. Based on registrations they aim to allocate enough space so that cars can open doors wide on both sides. The easiest way to register and pay is on line at the website: http://www.concoursinthehills.org under the “Register” tab. The entry fee is a minimum donation of $60 per car to the Phoenix Children's Hospital. Please note that the organizers have established a strict “No Refunds” policy. Spectator admission and parking is free. In case of rain, the event will be rescheduled for February 18.
Unlike 2017, we will not be meeting off-site this year to drive in as a group. In previous years, we had so many Porsches drive in as a group that we overwhelmed that area of parking cars. Such a problem! If you enter your car in the event, please make sure you arrive no later than 7:00 AM at the Concours in the Hills entrance to register and get parked in our Porsche area.
The show officially opens at 10:00 AM and runs to 3:00PM. DJ music will entertain people of all ages as they walk around and enjoy all the cars. More food trucks will be added above what they had last year!
