The annual 15th edition of Salon Privé prestigious Concours d’Elégance welcomes the new appointment of Mr Nic Waller as its new Concours Curator who will bring a wealth of experience and global connections to one of the UK’s most popular automotive garden party’s.
Nic embraces over 15 years of knowledge in the Concours arena as European Consultant to the world-famous Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Salon Privé Concours d’Elégance became a partner Concours to the prestigious Peninsula Classics ‘Best of the Best’, but it was also appointed as the UK’s only fully-sanctioned ICJAG event, taking the judging and entries to an altogether new level.
Salon Privé Concours Chairman, Andrew Bagley said:
“We are thrilled Nic Waller has decided to join forces with Salon Privé too as Concours Curator. Salon Privé has enjoyed a steady rise to the top of the Concours world rankings in recent years and Nic’s knowledge and passion for the classic car movement, clearly evident through his continued association and work with Pebble Beach, will be invaluable in ensuring that Salon Privé Concours d’Elégance by AXA continues to attract the world’s very top collectors.”

Newley appointed Nic Waller said:
“I am delighted to be joining the team at Salon Privé for 2020, a new decade that promises exciting events for the collector car community around the world. I often compare the finest international concours events to the Formula One Grand Prix world with F1 teams constantly travelling around the globe. Likewise, similar ‘teams’ of world-class collectors and restorers attend the very best concours events in almost every country including Britain, the United States, and Japan, as well as throughout Europe. If, as I do, you equate the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to the American Grand Prix, then I believe Salon Privé is certainly the equivalent to the British Grand Prix. I am very proud to now work with both these prestigious concours and I look forward to continuing my friendship with collectors on both sides of the Atlantic.”
‘Salon Privé Week’ is now recognised as one of the must-attend series of events for any car enthusiast or aficionado and is held annually within the grounds of ‘Britain’s Greatest Palace’, Blenheim Palace.
Classic Car Curation will once again be attending the 2020 Salon Privé, which is now firmly established as the UK’s most exclusive Motor Show.
