Established in 1956, the Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance laid claim to being the world’s longest continuously running event of its kind

Coronavirus forced an unexpected pause in 2020, but the San Francisco Bay Area show returned to full health in 2021

Three days of motoring events concluded with the Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, July 18. More than 200 classic and exotic cars packed the Crystal Springs Golf Course in Burlingame.

Best of Show for 2021

No self-respecting concours event would be without awards, and the Hillsborough saw numerous classes judged. 

However, the most important prize of all is the coveted ‘Best of Show’ award. Selected by the Chief Judge and two Honorary Judges, this award selects the single overall top car from the various class winners. 

For 2021, the impeccable 1937 Horch 853 Sport Cabriolet scooped Best of Show glory. Owned by Aaron and Valerie Weiss, the rare Horch was noted as delivering the “ultimate in elegance”. 

Previously recognized at both the Pebble Beach and Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, the Horch’s success should be no surprise.

BMW and Ford take center stage

Each year, the Hillsborough Concours chooses to honor the histories of certain manufacturers. For 2021, both BMW and Ford were given special recognition on the concours field.

BMW and Ford models were judged in six special classes, but also claimed some of the top prizes on offer. 

Winning the Chairman’s Award, hand-picked by new chairman Glen Egan, was this rare BMW M1 Procar. Created in 1979, the BMW M1 Procar Championship pitted the top racing drivers from around the world against each other, using equal machinery.

Over 200 classics on display

The collection of cars at Hillsborough Concours was diverse, ranging from pre-war vintage machinery, through to the latest supercars. Even a gold DeLorean DMC-12 could be seen on the show field. 

Hillsborough Concours d ‘Elegance Chairman Glen Egan commented that: “This year’s Concours exceeded all expectations in terms of both entrants and attendance”.

He added: “After missing last year due to the COVID pandemic, it was especially gratifying to witness the enduring enthusiasm from the car community and sense the feeling of being back together, sharing our passion.”
