Each year we have fantastic support from our regional Car Clubs. These dedicated owners come out to support their club and the Keeneland Concours d’Elegance. This has become such a fan favorite that we accommodate the clubs with their own area of the field to exhibit. This is where car enthusiasts can bring their rides, meet their friends and be immersed in pure automotive fun. The Paddock area is limited to vehicles identifiable as being of Special Interest, Sports Cars, and Club Cars. Designated exhibition vehicles are also welcome. The fee for entrance to the Paddock area is $5.00 per vehicle in addition to the General Admission per person.
Be sure to come over to the Car Club Paddock area and be surrounded by Alfa Romeos, Audis, British, Cobras, Corvettes, Ferraris, Hot Rods, Maseratis, Miatas, Mini-Coopers, Model A, Mustangs, Porsches, and many others. This popular gathering attracts 500-600 great automobile examples from both local and nearby states.
In great sportsmanship, there is an annual challenge between each car club on who can raise the most in donations. This is staged at a table with the car clubs name on separate containers for the donations. Each year is a Trophy is awarded for the club raising the most donations and a Plaque is awarded for the club that donates the most per car. The winning Car Clubs have their name engraved on the Paddock Challenge Cup and Paddock Plaque. Both the Trophy and the Plaque are displayed during the year in the University of Kentucky Children’s Hospital lobby. Congratulations to the 2021 winners! Porsche won the Trophy for the most dollars donated and Sterling British won the Plaque for most dollars per car. The Challenge is a great way for clubs and individuals to support both the Keeneland Concours and the UK Healthcare Kentucky Children’s Hospital.
All proceeds go to our beneficiary, the UK Healthcare Kentucky Children’s Hospital.
Great job folks!
