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.
Ken Hold, Director of the Car Club Paddock Challenge, states that the 2019 Paddock had 521 really neat vehicles including the UK solar car and too many other notables to mention. Congratulations to the Paddock Challenge 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 University of Kentucky Children’s Hospital.
All proceeds go to our beneficiary, the University of Kentucky Children’s Hospital.
Great job folks!
