Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a Concours? Also known as a Show and Shine, the Patroon Concours is a day that starts with a Car Show, continues with a Road Rally after lunch (yes, lunch), and ends with a Banquet Dinner with a small awards ceremony.

How clean does my car need to be? There are multiple levels of cleanliness.  Check out the sample judging sheets (coming soon).  There is Clean (Exterior/Interior), Super Clean (Clean +trunk +engine bay), Concours (Super Clean +underbody).  And if you just don’t want to clean, there’s the Dirty Dog.  If you’re shy, a Display Only category is available.

You may, at your discretion, enter your car as a “Tuner” car. These will be judged by all the other entrants.  A “Tuner” would be those with extensive body and engine modifications, special sound and video systems.

Additionally, entrants will also vote for the best classic and modern vehicle for the “Best in Show” award.

You can find a sample judging sheet and items judges look at here: Judging Score Sheet 2010 and Judging Score Sheet 2010 – Guide.  NOTE: A change for 2011, all convertibles will be required to have their tops UP for judging.

What is the Drive About? This year we are going to take a drive along the east side of the Hudson River to eventually arrive on the east side of Lake George.  This will avoid the motorcycle rally that same weekend. It will be a typical BMW Saturday afternoon cruise to enjoy the beauty an Upstate New York summer has to offer.

CONCOURS 2011 RULES Cars will compete in one of four cleanliness levels:  Clean, Super Clean, Concours, or Dirty Dog.  There are multiple model categories that are separated by Generation (major model changes), and Body style. There are also “Modified/Tuner” vehicles and a most dirty category.  Model categories may be combined within their cleanliness category depending on the number of entries.

  1. Entrants must be a member of the BMW CCA or may join at a reduced rate on the day of the event.
  2. Entrants must own/lease the car entered.  Entrants may enter multiple cars.  Entry fees must be paid for each car.
  3. Entrants that fit multiple categories must choose the category they wish to compete in before judging begins.
  4. Modified/Tuner cars are cars with significant non-OEM add-ons and modifications that significantly affect the aesthetic value of the automobile.
  5. Vehicle categories are subject to combination and/or separation in order to generate fair and meaningful competition.  Accordingly, cars will be placed in competition groups based on:
    1. the number of registrants for similar year/model vehicles, i.e., all entries must compete against other entered vehicles (no winning by default)
    2. the age of the vehicle, and
    3. the vehicle model
  6. Cars will be judged on a 0-9 scale overall, based on similar scoring for interior, exterior (for “Clean” category), engine, trunk (added for “Super Clean” category), and undercarriage (added for “Concours”). Elements to be considered: cleanliness and overall appearance.
  7. Separate awards: in addition to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for each model and cleanliness class, there will be a single:
    1. “Best of Show” awarded for Classic and Late models based on appearance, cleanliness, and rarity of model, as determined by the entrants.
    2. “Modified/Tuner” vehicles will be judged on showmanship, complexity, and fit and finish and is determined by popular vote of the entrants.
    3. “Dirty Dog” award, determined by the ravages of time, neglect, and general disarray.  This is awarded by the judges.

*These rules may be subject to change.  Participants will be notified of any changes as soon as possible.

Congratulations to our winners!
