Automotive and motorsport logistics specialists Bespoke Handling have confirmed an extension of the relationship with the London Concours and the London Concours of Elegance. The multi-year deal will see Bespoke Handling continue as the Official Transportation Partner until at least 2024, with an exclusive selection of rare and valuable vehicles set to be on display at the two high-profile events.
Returning for a third year, Bespoke Handling will work with organisers Thorough Events, and fully manage and coordinate transport requirements for the vehicles being displayed across the two events later this summer. The London Concours returns to the Honourable Artillery Company in June, showcasing the glamorous and stylish Italian drop-top spiders as part of the carefully curated selection of vehicles at one of London’s most exclusive green spaces.
In September, the gardens of one of the UK’s most famous landmarks will again play host to rare, historically relevant, and highly coveted vehicles as Hampton Court Palace celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Concours of Elegance. The event will, once again, bring together an impressive selection of vehicles from across the world, while also reuniting the class winning entries from previous years and a collection of Royal Household vehicles in celebration of Her Royal Highness, the Queen’s 70th year as Monarch.
Gary Ayles, Bespoke Handling CEO, explained: “The London Concours and Concours of Elegance have established themselves as two of the blue riband events on the automotive calendar over the past few years. Somehow, they manage to outdo the year before in terms of the calibre of vehicles they display, and it is great to be able to confirm that Bespoke Handling will continue to support the programmes and work with the owners of these special vehicles, as well as the event organisers with the multi-year extension to the agreement. We are very conscious of just how special these vehicles are, and we are extremely honoured to have the responsibility of Official Transportation Partner.”
Andrew Evans, Concours of Elegance and London Concours Director added: “When you’re working with the rarest and most valuable cars in the world, entrusted to us by their enthusiastic owners, it’s absolutely crucial that we partner with people that know how to care for them. Bespoke Handling have proved time and again that their expertise in transporting and storing automotive rarities is second to none, and we’re delighted to have secured their services across our event portfolio for the long-term.”
