List of 2018 Classes

Thank you for nominating your vehicle for the Keeneland Concours d’Elegance. Outlined below are several factors taken into consideration before accepting any vehicle for the Concours:

  • Significant vehicles for each class must be in original condition or faithfully restored to original condition.
  • Each year special recognition has been given to the Featured Marque Class. For 2018, our 15th show, we will feature BMW automobiles and motorcycles.
  •  You may enter more than one vehicle; however, we allow only one vehicle per class per entrant.
  •  Vehicles will be judged based on the correctness of  their period, presentation and cleanliness.
  • Exceptional replicas may be eligible for the non-judged display class.
