Judge inspecting Porsches at Concours at Salon Privé celebrating Porsche 70 years on 1 September 2018
I received the email inviting me to join the judges panel for the 2018 Concours Masters Celebration of 70 Years of Porsche on Saturday, 1st September. It didn’t take long for me to accept as this would be an opportunity to get up close to some stunning machinery, and to be involved in a very special anniversary event. As it happened, we had glorious weather with wall-to-wall sunshine for the entire weekend, a good spectator turnout, and wonderfully no overcrowding at this exclusive event.
Each evening over the weekend of 31 August to 2 September, the quaint historic market town of Woodstock was bulging with Porsches, Ferraris, Bentleys and many more fabulous sports car marques. They were scattered throughout the town centre, parked on pavements and squeezed in wherever they could find parking, and perhaps the local constabulary took the weekend off. The regular town’s population of three to four thousand, would expand considerably over this weekend.
