The Mercedes-Benz Club of NSW will stage its Concours d'Elegance display of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, this year combined with the SGA Day, on Sunday 18 September 2016. The venue is Gough Whitlam Park, Bayview Ave, Earlwood, which is next to the Cooks River, and is surrounded by beautiful gardens. It is an ideal location for a picnic, with a children's playground, and outdoor cafe with sandwiches, pastries, coffee and tea. We look forward to your participation on the day as either an entrant or observer.
About Concours d'Elegance
A Concours d'Elegance (from French, meaning a competition of elegance) dates back to the 17th Century French aristocracy, who paraded horse-drawn carriages in the parks of Paris during Summer weekends and holidays. Over time, the gatherings became a competition among automobile owners to be judged on the appearance of their automobiles. MBCNSW held its first Concours d'Elegance on Sunday 15 April 1973 at Centennial Park in Sydney, in conjunction with the Porsche Club.
