BMW Seattle Concours d'Elegance & Heritage Picnic




Join us for the 32nd Annual BMW Seattle Concours d'Elegance & Heritage Picnic at Cedar River Park. The show, along with music, arts & crafts and many other family activities will all be part of the IKEA Renton River Days festival annual event. So mark your calendar for Sunday, July 29th and come out and be part of the history and beauty that make up the heritage of BMW. This will be a special day for BMW enthusiasts of all levels to come together and enjoy each other’s camaraderie and a fine display of cars. This is a no cost event for spectators.


Registration
Early discounted registration is now open at www.motorsportsreg.com or mail-in registration can also be used.


Feature Car
The entire lineage of the 6 Series will be honored at this year’s show. Whether it’s the classic E9 to the newly released F13 as part of the Feature Car line-up, or the 327 to the 2000 Fabulous Vintage collection, all these gems will take center lawn as part of the BMW 6 Series Lineage.


Classes
There will be two classes to choose from. A Judged Class with beautifully etched glass trophies, and a non-competitive Display Class. Both classes will be eligible for the coveted People’s Choice Award.
Class Designations


Judged Class
Cars are judged in three major areas: exterior, interior (including trunk) and engine bay. The underside of the car is not judged. A three-member team whose independent results are then totaled to determine a score for each judged entry. This process is designed to be as fair and objective as possible. For class competition there are bonus points for mileage, which evens out the competition for high versus low mileage cars.

Taking the top BMW from each class, and lining them up for a final review by a 3-judge team determines the Best in Show Award, presented by BMW Seattle. Previous scores are not considered as the judges choose the cleanest, most dazzling BMW on the lawn. Cars are judge on cleanliness and condition only, and not on originality.

To participate in the judged class, Club membership is required in either BMW CCA, BMW ACA or Canadian BMW CCBC. BMW CCA membership will also be available in person the day of the show.

Display Class
The Display Class is a terrific way to take part in the show for those who choose not to compete but want to show off their pride & joy. Just clean it up a bit, and you’re good to go! Both judged and display class cars will be parked together according to class category.

Sponsors
A Special Thanks goes to our Premiere Sponsor, BMW Seattle. Without their very generous contributions year after year, the show wouldn’t be possible. Be sure to check out their display during the show.

Also, we want to thank Griot’s Garage and South Lake European for their generous contributions to the show.

Children’s Activities
We’ll have a tent with activities for the kids to enjoy throughout the day. Not only is the Henry Moses Water Park directly next door, but the IKEA Renton River Days Festival will have several other activities nearby for the family to enjoy.

Volunteers Needed!
All the fun of this event requires many volunteers to spend a small amount of time helping out before, during and/or afterwards to make this event a success. Help is needed with administrative, set-up, parking, check-in, judging, children’s tent assistances, clean-up and several other activities. We would love to have you help out with the fun. Please contact Steve Questad at 206-380-7276 or s.questad@comcast.net for more info.

Food Service
The Bistro Box, specializing in gourmet street food, will once again be on-hand providing a delicious choice of meals, snacks, and refreshments during the show.

Early online registration is now closed, but you're still able to register Sunday morning. You can speed up your Sunday morning registration by bringing this completed form with you.

Weather forecast for this Sunday looks to be great. See ya soon.

The cars that placed here had no business in doing so. The way the cars were judged was very obscured. I had an 04 red M3 next to me, the guy spent two weeks cleaning! He even spent two days cleaning the underside, the car was beautiful with only 30k miles. He never even placed. The ones that won this class were two brand new ( 1 month old just off show room floor) identical 1M's. They were identical in every way. They were completely stock. These judges were complete morons.

You understand that you entered a "concours" competition. It's all about how clean the car is. They don't care about mods or anything. If your car is a daily driven car, good luck with winning cause there are people like you said above who will most likely win. Last year, I came in 3rd and I was lucky to place.

I don't understand the judging either, but thats why I didn't bother entering. I figured that I'd miss a few bugs from the drive up and would be DQ'd anyways. I feel bad for the guy next to me who spent the entire morning cleaning his E46M3 but didn't place. I guess that's just judging - it's just too subjective IMHO. We still had a good time, and there were some really awesome cars show up (M1, Z1, and my personal favorite - a 1938 327/28).

I'm just saying that the M3 should have placed. I don't care if mine didn't. This M3 guy deserved to place. Like I said the car beautiful and it was stock not modified. They could have at least diversified and not have chosen two identical cars.
