PHOTOS: Rare vintage cars at Concours d’Elegance
The CBA Africa Concours d’Elegance went down Sunday afternoon at the Nairobi Racecourse along Ngong Road.
As expected, the event attracted spectators in their hundreds who braved the hot afternoon sun to appreciate some of the best cars in the region.
The fete, which is one of Kenya’s best day-out for family, saw fashion statements made – bold, ornate and trendy.
The prime focus of the programme was to showcase the classic, well maintained and pimped-up cars and motorcycles. The competition registered 77 entrants.
However, it should be noted that it was the car owners who were up in arms against one another as they had spent huge fortunes on rebuilding, repainting, polishing and titivating their cars.
The event that begun in 1970 has seen a steady increase in the number of Kenyan and African participants over the years as compared to previous years when Kenyan-European and Asians dominated the scene.
The 2015 edition saw a record of 24 African participants, who are non-Kenyan, register for the fete.
These entrants came from Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania and South Africa.
The day was charged up with activities – ranging from parachuting, exhibition of vintage farming machines and much more.
The two overall winners of the competition were:
- Overall winner of the car classes: Phoenix Aviation’ 1928 Ford Model A Tudor
- Overall winner of the motorcycle classes: Sati Classics’ 1925 DKW
