Hillsborough Concours d'Elegance

TGR Staff

More than 200 of the world’s most treasured collector cars will adorn the 18th fairway of Burlingame’s Crystal Springs Golf Course on July 21, as the 64th annual Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance  —the world’s longest continually running Concours-- showcases excellence in automotive design and engineering.

The Concours will be preceded on Saturday, July 20 with the annual Hillsborough Tourd’Elegance which will launch under police escort on a 70-mile rally along with the Bay Area’s most stunning back roads and scenic vistas, culminating with a catered luncheon at a private Hillsborough estate. 

Recognizing the German brand’s extraordinary contributions to sportscar design and precision engineering, the Concours has selected Porsche as its featured marque for 2019. Attendees will be treated to a stunning collection led by the internationally acclaimed 917K (above, far left) which took the checkered flag at the 24 Hours of LeMans and the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1970 and 1971.

A total of 24 judged classes of rare sports and luxury cars will be on display at the Concours, all vying for the coveted “Best of Show” award. While event organizers are still selecting from an abundance of entries, early confirmations include a 1934 Rolls-Royce Phantom II, a 1949 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Supersport, a 1953 Fiat 8V Supersonic, a 1971 American Motors AMX and the crazy 1961 “Beatnik Bandit” custom built by Ed “Big Daddy” Roth.
The event raises proceeds for Autism Speaks, The Guardsmen, Gatepath and the Hillsborough Schools Foundation.
