Deutsche Marque 30th Anniversary, May 5th

BMW CCA REGISTRATION ONLY

Porsche and Mercedes-Benz club members must register through their respective clubs.

You must be a current BMW CCA member to register.

Note: Online registration is available until midnight Saturday, May 4th. You can also register at the event.

If you have questions on Sunday/day of show please call me (John McWilliams) at 540-687-0166. I will be at Nottoway Park at approx. 8AM.

One of the highlights of our event schedule, and an annual rite of Spring for German car fans, is the Deutsche Marque Concours d'Elegance. This year will represent the 30th time that we have gathered with our friends from the Greater Washington Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America (MBCA) and the Potomac Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) for this terrific show.

In the Deutsche Marque Concours, vehicles are judged by their condition, appearance, and cleanliness. There will be three classes at this event - Street (judged), Meister class (judged - for previous category winners), and Anfänger class (not judged - for newcomers to the concours experience; selected by people's choice balloting). Judges scoring cars in the Street and Meister classes will only judge the tops of the cars, including the exterior, interior, engine bay, storage compartments and chrome, but not the chassis. Street class cars are generally divided into several groups based upon NCC rules. While Anfänger class cars will not be formally judged, these cars will be eligible to win the "People's Choice" award, and this is a terrific way for newcomers to become acclimated to a concours event.

Event Schedule: 8:30 AM Field opens to show participants for placement onto the field.
9:00 AM General admission begins.
10:00 AM All cars whose owners wish them to be judged must be registered, and cars placed on the field. If you would like to be judged, PLEASE have your car on the field by 10:00 AM. We do our best to judge everyone consistently and fairly, and can do this best if we have sufficient time. Thank you!
10:30 AM Judging begins.
2:30 - 3:00 PM After the judging is completed, scores are tallied, and winners determined, we will announce winners at the wine and cheese reception.
3:00 PM Wine and Cheese Reception - Awards for all clubs will be presented at the Wine and Cheese Reception.


Note: The concours is an all-day event. The organizers of all the clubs will be working diligently prior to the show as well as on the day of the event. Please also respect the hard work by the participants who have prepared their cars for the show. If you enter the event, please be prepared to stay through the awards presentation. If your vehicle places in its class and you have departed the field, the award will be given to the next runner-up in class. Further, in order to be fair to all the participants, we need to have sufficient time to judge all the cars consistently and fairly. We can't do that if people show up at 11:30 a.m. and ask to have their cars judged. We're not trying to be difficult, only respecting the efforts many of our club members make to prepare their cars for the concours. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

Complete details about this event can be found at: http://forum.nccbmwcca.org/showthread.php?8147

Contact John McWilliams at john.mcwilliams@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Paul - thanks for posting this here. 2 weeks to go!

We're having a judging school on Saturday, May 4, the day before the show. Hosted by Mercedes-Benz of Tyson’s Corner, 8545 Leesburg Pike, Vienna, VA 22182

This one-day class will have you ready for the DMC and the coming year of Concours events!

How can you become a Concours Judge, or just improve your skills? What does a judge look for when judging a German Marque Automobile? This is your opportunity to find the answers!

This class is open to all members of the BMW, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz Club who want to judge at the Deutsche Marque. This class will teach you how judge new, classic, and customized German cars for Concours d’Elegance events. You will learn what judges look for when judging, and what to ignore!

The class will be taught by Pete Lesler, Mercedes-Benz Club of America (MBCA) National Concours Chair and past MBCA President, who has been chief judge at a number of world class Concours events around the country!

The class will be taught in the conference room of Mercedes-Benz of Tyson’s Corner, starting at 9 am. We will break for lunch (provided) and after lunch the group will break into judging teams reviewing participants cars based on what was learned in the class. Everyone will then return to the conference room where Pete will go over the judging and discuss the scores.

A light breakfast will be offered and lunch is included in the cost of the class. The cost of the class will be $15. You will need to reserve your spot early, as Pete’s classes always fill up quickly!

To register go to gws-mbca.org and click on the Deutsche Marque Concours Judging School. You can pay by credit card online, or send a check in.

For more information or to register, contact:
Bill Hopper, MBCA | GWS – 5455 Broad Branch Rd, NW Washington, DC, 20015-1753, wwhrestoraton@att.net, or call 202.365.0672

The forecast looks great for this weekend - sunny & 70s. Come out, if even just to see the display.
