Date Set For 2018 Concours And Preparations Underway

Coastweek -- The Kenya Motor Sports Federation (KMSF) has listed September 30th for the 2018 CBA Africa Concours d’Elegance and preparations by the Alfa Romeo Owners Club are underway.

The Concours will be held at the Nairobi Racecourse and will be the seventh successive event sponsored by CBA and the 48th in the annual series organized by the Club.

Following  long established tradition the Concours will be held at the Nairobi Racecourse.

This ideal facility has been made more accessible by the Southern By Pass which speeds the arrival of competitors, officials and spectators.

The draft regulations for the classiest event on the Kenya motorsport calendar are in an advanced stage of preparation.

The organizers will submit the draft for approval by the Kenya Motorsport Federation for cars and the Kenya Motor Sport Foundation for motorcycles.

12 cars and eight motorcycle classes are listed in the regulations and the only major change in the regulations will be the introduction of a class for classic motorcycles.

Recognizing the current difficult economic conditions the Alfa Romeo Owners Club will maintain the entry fees at the same level as 2017.

The assessment of cars will commence on the Total inspection ramp where officials will check the underside.

Competing cars will then be driven in front of the Racecourse grandstand for the judges to mark the paintwork followed by the rating of the interior and engine.

Motorcycles are marked in a similar way at the Racecourse parade ring.

In addition to the judging of the classic and vintage cars and motorcycles there will be additional events linked with the Concours.

There will be a sale for classic cars and motorcycles made in 1993 or earlier for machines in any condition.

There will also be 28 motor trade stands in an area titled Auto Expo which is located on the inside of the Racecourse adjacent to the car judging line.

Next to the motor trade stands space has been allocated for the heritage collection which will feature a display of old machinery and equipment.

This year the collection featured a 1918 steam engine, a Ferguson tractor compared with the latest equivalent model and an old Mercedes truck.
