It is EXTREMELY important that you read ALL of the instructions below prior to filling out your application.
After you submit your application a confirmation email will be automatically sent to the email address you provided. This will let you know we have your application. Please review the information carefully and contact the registrar if there are any errors.
You will you be asked to pay your $75 entry fee upon acceptance ONLY.
Below you will find the instructions you'll need to fill out the Entrant Application.
We recommend that you print out this page and use it for reference as you fill in your application form.
In order to keep our administrative costs as low as possible you will not be required to pay for your entry at this time.
Upon acceptance of your car, you will be sent a confirmation email from the Car Selection Committee advising you to confirm your acceptance and submit your entry fee at that time.
VERY IMPORTANT - Regardless of who owns the vehicle, we need to have a single contact with whom we can communicate about the event. Enter this person’s name and email in this part of the form. (You will enter the owner’s name for the program and placard in another step.) We also must have a mobile/cell phone number so we can reach you or whoever will be with the vehicle on the day of the event. If you are the main contact but someone else (your spouse or business partner) will be with the vehicle at the show, you should enter that number in the “cell phone” box.
Vehicle Owner – Enter the name exactly as you want to appear in the program, our records and the vehicle placard. The legal owner on the registration may be “Acme Plastics” but for the Concours you can have the car’s owner listed as “John Smith,” “Jack Smith,” “Jack & Susie Smith,” and so on.
Year, Make, Model and Color – Only vehicles built in model years up to 1989 are eligible for the Concours, except for specific special exhibit classes. In the unlikely event your car’s make/marque is not in the drop-down list, select OTHER and enter the model and make in the “Model” box. You may enter a generic color or the manufacturer’s nomenclature (e.g., “Guardsman Red,” or “Mint Green”).
Coach Builder – Provide this information only if it applicable to your vehicle; that is, automobiles where is was customary to have a bespoke body created or where known artisans were routinely called on to replace or extensively modify existing manufactured body styles.
Price When New – Choose between the five price ranges provided in the drop down list.
License Plate – Provide the state and license plate of the car as it will appear at the Concours d’Élegance.
Other identifying data – If available provide either the VIN# (Vehicle Identification Number) or, if the vehicle was manufactured before VINs were required, the chassis number.
You may choose to have your car entered for exhibit only or have it judged and therefore eligible for an award. NOTE - In selecting cars, priority will be given to judged entries.
Whether or not you wish to have your car judged, please indicate in which class you would like your car to be exhibited. NOTE - final class assignments will be determined by the Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance.
Vehicle Description - The Hillsborough Concours creates a custom placard for each vehicle entered, which is displayed by your vehicle at the show (and will be yours to keep). We want to incorporate information about this specific vehicle in the placard, so let us know anything significant about this year/make/model and what’s special about your vehicle. This may be just how long you’ve owned it and whether and when it’s been restored. Or it may be its provenance or awards won at a significant Concours d’Elegance or other show.
Check the box if you wish to participate in the 2014 Tour d’ Élegance with the vehicle you are registering for the Concours.
You are required to provide three (3) recent images of your car showing its front, side and engine compartment. To submit your photos on the "Step 5: Upload Photos" page, click on the "Choose File" button for each of the individual Front, SIde and Engine photos and locate the file on your computer. If any of your files are larger than 5 megabytes, the server will not be able to process them. If your file is larger than 5 megabytes, you can shrink the file using the free utility at http://www.picresize.com/#. Follow the instructions there. If you need assistance please contact the Registrar here.
When you begin the upload process you will see an yellow "indicator light" above the button and a progress bar showing the upload is underway. When your file had been uploaded successfully, the indicator light will turn green. Then begin uploading the next picture. If the indicator light turns red, it's usually because the file is too large for the system. Please be patient while the photos upload and are processed, particularly if you submit large files. If you click away from the page before the upload completes, your images will not be captured even though your contact info and vehicle info have already been collected at that point.
Once you have completed Step 5, you will be asked to if you would like to register another vehicle. If you select to register another vehicle, you will return to Step 2 to begin the process again for a new vehicle. All of your vehicles will be associated with the owner information already submitted in Step 1.
PLEASE NOTE - If you do not receive a confirmation email immediately, then your entry was NOT received. Please check your spam or junk mail filter - it may be there. If not, please email the registrar right away.
