bernhardferrariWhat do you need for a successful concours d’elegance? Well, first of all some pretty cars, perhaps some rare cars and good weather. More importantly you need an impressive location for the event, something that can take on the concours cars in terms of grandeur and classiness.

Still, one can still look at the nice pictures accompanying the written articles.

We never really thought about it, but apperantly there is quite a market for adapted classic, sports and high performance cars tailored to the needs of disabled motorists. Obviously, these people are just as passionate as the non-disabled and because of that, the British 'Mobility Roadshow' is calling onto owners of such cars to come and visit the event at Kemble Airfield in June.
