Winter is over and you are excited to bring your car out and enjoy the nice weather. Well, you can do just that at the National Capital Chapter’s 22nd Annual Deutsche Marque Concours. Following previous BMW CCA Deutsche Marque Concours tradition, this will be a “top only” concours that is co-sponsored with our fellow Deutsche Marque car clubs - Porsche Club of America (PCA) and the Mercedes-Benz Club of America (MBCA). This year we plan to have commemorative dash plaques and FUN for all participants, trophy awards for the winners, and T-shirts available for purchase.
What is a Concours?
A concours is a "clean-car contest" and car show. Vehicles are judged by its condition, appearance, and cleanliness. This event will offer two classes; top-only (judged) and display (People’s Choice). “Top-only” is where the exterior, interior (including engine bay), and luggage compartment are judged. The "display" class is one that involves the general public/participants vote by a "peoples' choice" ballot to determine the winner. Depending on participation, the top-only class will be separated into different models (2002s, early/late 3 series, coupes, sedans, M, Z, X, etc.). As we have in the past, racecars are also welcome to participate.
Schedule8:30am – Grounds open to show participants for placement onto the field.
9:00am - General admission to the public begins.

Please note: This concours is an all day event. Resources are spent in preparation prior to the show, as well as on the day of the event, by both event planners and participants. If you enter the event, please be prepared to say through the awards presentation. If your vehicle places in its class and you and the vehicle have departed, the award will be given to the next runner-up in class. Additionally, please be mindful that cars not registered and displayed in the show should not be parked in the show field.
