Mark your calendar now for the 33rd Annual BMW Seattle Concours d’Elegance & Heritage Picnic at Cedar River Park in Renton on July 28, 2013. Come out this summer day and experience the heritage that is BMW. Our featured car this year is the 7 Series, BMW’s iconic full-sized luxury sedan, and includes all models of the 7 Series from the classic E23 through today’s F01. So whatever 7 Series you drive, plan to take center lawn with your fellow 7 Series owners this July.
You can participate in one of two classes: Judged Class and Display Class. Judged Class enters your car for review by the Concours judges, with beautiful etched glass trophies awarded to the category winners. The non-competitive Display Class allows you to display your car alongside the judged cars. BMW Seattle presents a Best In Show award to the judged contestants, and cars entered in both classes are eligible for the coveted People’s Choice Award. All cars, both judged and display, will be arranged on the lawn by the car class groups shown here.
Judged Cars are reviewed for overall cleanliness and condition of the exterior, interior (including the trunk), and engine bay. A three-member team reviews each car, and their independent results are tallied to determine the first, second, and third place winners for each car class category. Bonus points are awarded for mileage to even out the competition for high-mileage cars. You can read more about the specific criteria the judges use to evaluate a car, and the overall judging philosophy at this event.
To participate in the judged class, you must be a current member in the BMW CCA, BMW ACA or Canadian BMW CCBC. Display class is open to members and non-members alike.
