Car Club Paddock on the show field.
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.
Be sure to come over to the Car Club Paddock area and be surrounded by Alfa Romeos, Audis, British Sterlings, Cobras, Corvettes, Ferraris, Hot Rods, Maseratis, Miatas, Mini-Coopers, Model A, Mustangs, Porsches and many others.
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. The winning Car Club has their name engraved on the Paddock Challenge Cup. Both the Cup and the Plaque are displayed during the year in the Kentucky Children’s Hospital lobby.
In 2017 the Car Club challenge collected $3,974.11 for the Kentuckys Children’s Hospital. The British Sterling Club won the challenge for the club with the highest individual giving of $560. with 15 members present. That now marks the British Sterling Club’s 5th time winning of the 8 years the club has participated. The Porsche Club raised the most money overall, $3,098.25 with 110 members present. That’s the 8th time out of 11 years of participation the Porsche Club has raised the most money.
The total donation from the Car Club Paddock challenge over ten years has been $54,095.62.
Great job folks!
