Commemorating its 66th year, the Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance -– the world’s longest continually running concours — will honor the iconic Route 66 with special dedicated classes during festivities on June 26 at Crystal Springs Golf Course in Burlingame, Calif.
A “Cars of Route 66” special display for the 2022 Concours will share the grounds with Shocking Classics Through 1987; Modified European Sports Cars Through 1987; Important Bay Area Cars Through 1987; Ferrari-Powered Cars; Yellow Cars; and Shelby 60th Anniversary machinery.
This year’s event will also feature more than 20 judged classes of “Automobiles of Distinction”, including American Pre and Post-War, CCCA Approved Classics, American Muscle Cars, American Sporting Cars Through 1987, Vintage Motorcycles, two Ferrari classes, two imported sports car classes, Japanese cars, a preservation class, two Rolls-Royce and Bentley classes, vintage hot rods, imported passenger and touring cars, vintage race cars and arcane and rare cars.
“In celebrating our 66th year, we felt it was an ideal time to honor both the legendary cars and lifestyle that are historically associated with an icon of American automobile culture—Route 66,” said Concours Chairman Glen Egan. “Guests will have an opportunity to get an up-close look at perfectly restored examples of many of the incredible vehicles that could be found traversing the country on the ‘Mother Road’ in its prime.”
Weekend festivities begin on Friday, June 24, with a “Start Your Engines” kick-off party in historic Burlingame. On Saturday, the annual Hillsborough Tour d’Elegance road rally will traverse the Bay Area’s most stunning back roads and scenic vistas, finishing at a private car collector’s estate for luncheon. Sunday it’s the Concours d’Elegance on the Crystal Springs course’s 18th hole.
Partnering with the Town of Hillsborough, the all-volunteer Hillsborough Concours Foundation organizes this annual sell-out event and raises proceeds for Ability Path, The Guardsmen, and the Hillsborough Schools Foundation.
Title sponsors included Franklin Templeton Investments and Fiduciary Trust International and Kerns Fine Jewelry. Additional sponsors include The Putnam Automotive Group, Courseco Inc., Bonhams, The Candy Store and Highway One Classic Automobiles.
