CORSA International Convention Events – Spot-lighting the Concours d’Elegance

concours 1
The Concours d’Elegance is certainly one of the highlights of the annual convention. Here, the finest and most prestigious Corvairs compete for points within different classes - the name is the French phrase for "competition of elegance". The vehicles are thoroughly inspected and judged based upon paint and bodywork, trim and trunk or cargo area, wheels, tires and glass, undercarriage, engine, operations, and interior.


You can download here a very nice How-To Guide For Participants prepared by Ken Schifftner; and you can download here the full CORSA Concours d'Elegance rules.


There are three judging classes, defined as (in a nutshell):
Factory Stock - vehicles unmodified from their original factory assembly specifications. The two subcategories are Original and Restored.
Modified - corvair bodied vehicles that have been altered from their stock condition.
Engineering - vehicle using major corvair components (e.g., flat-six powered dune-buggies and ultra vans)

concours 2

Vehicles are also placed into two categories, defined as (in a nutshell):
Senior - vehicles that have previously won gold awards
Primary - all other vehicles

Award levels are determined as:
Gold - 96.00 to 100 points
Silver - 92.0 to 95.99
Bronze - 88.0 to 91.99

Thanks Matt,

I wasn't sure if I could register the morning of the event. I recall issues with that a few years ago and wasn't sure.

Cheers,
