Concours infromation:

We're doing things a bit differently this year, the 30th meeting of the three Deutsche marques. There will be a car corral for non-BMW CCA members who would like to attend the event. There is no charge for spectators, but you must be a BMW CCA member to display your car for the concours judging.

For any details on the concours please contact me.

We have a pair of supporting acts to this year's show - a detailing seminar and judging clinic.

- Spring Detailing School at Mercedes-Benz of Tyson’s Corner
Thursday April 18, 6:30 pm – 9 pm
Mercedes-Benz of Tyson’s Corner
8545 Leesburg Pike, Vienna, VA 22182

Mercedes-Benz of Tyson’s Corner, a Deutsche Marque Sponsor is helping us prepare for the upcoming 30th anniversary of the Deutsche Marque Concours d’Elegance with this event, a Detailing School, designed to get our cars (Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and BMW’s) ready for the May 5th show.

Though M-B of Tyson’s is hosting, Odds & Ends Detailing will be presenting the school. This is a great way to get to know both of these sponsors a little better, and we very much appreciate both of their help with this the 30th Anniversary of the Deutsche Marque event.

In this detailing school, attendees will gain hands-on knowledge that they can take home to prepare their Deutsche Marque entry. Learning some tricks of the trade to help you spend the next few weekends preparing your car for the concours. This will be more than a brief explanation of the detailing process; it will be a chance to bring your problems to the expert for advice on what you can do to make your German marquee Car stand out from the rest. Plan on trying out some new products and techniques!

We have set this event up, after work, on a Thursday night, so you will have a chance to work on your car the following weekend. So join us for a beer, a glass of wine, and some light fare, and lots of in-depth car talk.

This event is open to all Deutsche Marque participating clubs, BMW, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz Club members. Registration is $15 paid to MBCA | GWS, either on the website, or with a check mailed to the M-B Club.
