37th Annual Deutsche Marque Concours d'Elegance
May 2, 2021

O

ne of the highlights of NCC's event schedule,
and an annual rite of spring for German car
fans, is the Deutsche Marque Concours
d'Elegance. The Deutsche Marque Concours
d'Elegance is an automotive party featuring fine
German collector vintage and modern cars arrayed
around a pastoral park setting. Car owners, and
those who adore their cars, gather for a day of
mutual admiration and relaxed camaraderie while
guest judges review and critique the participants'
cars.
This year marks a milestone - the 37th time
that we have gathered with our friends from the
Greater Washington Section of the Mercedes-Benz
Club of America (MBCA) and the Potomac Region
of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) for this
terrific show, scheduled for Sunday, May 2, 2021.
We have a new venue this year, 2 Silos Brewery
Company, located on the Farm Brew Live campus at
Innovation Park in Manassas, VA. The venue is
easily reached via Route 66. The park entrance will
be marked with large car club banners so that you
cannot miss it.
As in past years, a " corral " will be positioned
along the entrance to the park to display special cars
not being judged. Space will be limited. More
vendors are anticipated at the new venue. The
judged entrants from the three marques will be interspersed with each other, allowing visitors the opportunity to see more of the fabulous cars assembled.
In the Deutsche Marque Concours, vehicles
are judged by their condition, appearance, and
cleanliness. There will be three classes at this event:
Street (judged), Meister class (judged, consisting of
first-place category winners from the 2019
concours), and Display class (not judged, winner

selected by people's choice balloting). Judges
scoring cars in the Street and Meister classes will
only judge the tops of the cars (including the
exterior, interior, engine bay, storage compartments
and chrome), but not the chassis. Street class cars
are generally divided into several groups based
upon BMW CCA national concours rules.
Cars produced after 2016 will not be judged,
but are welcome to be entered in the Display class
and are eligible for the People's Choice and Judges'
Choice awards.
Vehicles will be classified into the following
categories:
● Classics: All Thru 501/2/3/7, 3200, Isetta/600,
700, NK Sedans, 2000C/CS, E3, E9, E12, E21

The concours is an all-day event. The organizers of
all the clubs will be working diligently prior to the
show as well as on the day of the event. Please also
respect the hard work by the participants who have
prepared their cars for the show. If you enter the
event, please be prepared to stay through the awards
presentation. If your vehicle places in its class and
you have departed the field, the award will be given
to the next runner-up in class. Further, to be fair to
all the participants, we need to have enough time to
judge all the cars consistently and fairly. Please
have your car on the display field by 10 a.m.
Note that you must be a current BMW CCA
member, MBCA member, or PCA member in order
