Pre-Event discussion: India’s First International Concours D’Elegance
In the time of the Raj, the ruling families of India bought the finest cars in the world in astounding numbers. They also tasked the world’s coachbuilders and designers to create lavish (and often highly eccentric) special commissions – and yet India has never hosted an international Concours d’Elegance. Until now.
On the weekend of 31st October to 2nd November, the Royal Western India Turf Club in Mumbai will host the Cartier ‘Travel With Style’ Concours. The magnificent automobiles on display, owned by Indian royalty and private collectors, have never been exhibited on an international stage before – and many have never even been shown in India.

Oh great, it finally official. Expect this to be a truly world class experience, by invitation only.
Im pleasantly surprised that 64 cars will be there, I assumed that figure to have been much lower.

Since my other topic was closed, I will post the same questions here.
I am planning a trip to India (Mumbai to be precise) for the First Concours d'Elegance. Is it correct that there is no website for this event? I can only find this article India’s First International Concours D’Elegance - Classic Driver - MAGAZINE - events
Because that event only takes 3 days, I want to spend my time in India, visiting others car-events as well.
Does anyone have a sort of callendar with more events?
I find it hard to find any information about the classic-car-scene in India on the internet.
Thanks for your help,

There is no website as yet for the event.
Doubt there are any events close to the Cartier one.
Regional clubs hold Rallies, but a single calendar will be difficult to find.
Maybe the active vintage car club members could help. Or you could directly contact the clubs
The Vintage and Classic Car Club of India - Vintage and Classic Car Club of India
Karnataka Vintage and Classic Car Club
Heritage Motoring Club of India, Delhi
Sorry dont have the contacts for the last two. Can anyone add them and other Clubs?

It was but natural given the collection of fabulous automobiles in India that an event of this calibre was conceptualised and now becomes a reality. That Cartier is the sponsor only adds to the exclusivity.
I'm especially delighted to also note that the man behind this event is none other than Manvendra Singh. Of the little time I've spent with him during brief meetings over the years I know him to be a highly cultured, deeply passionate and, without a doubt, one with unrivalled exposure to the world of vintage cars in India. Cartier has the right man for the job and they really couldn't have done better. As the leading historian of vintage cars in India it is only apt that he selected the cars to participate.
From what I gather this event is not a one off show and will be held once every two years so we can all celebrate India's arrival on the world concours stage!
