Hilton Head Concours d’Elegance
MBCA is returning to the Hilton Head Concours d’Elegance!
Be part of our return to the 2019 edition of the renown Hilton Head Concours d’Elegance this November 1st thru the 3rd at the Port Royal Golf Club on beautiful Hilton Head Island. This year is going to be our year! MBCA has designated Hilton Head 2019 as a multi-regional event that is being supported by the Eastern, Southeastern and Central regions.
Car Club Show Case
We have been given a prime location on the field by the Hilton Head Concours team for Saturday November 2 to display our cars in Car Club Showcase and have been told that we can show up to 40 cars in the Saturday Car Club Showcase to tell the Mercedes Story and we can have at least 6-8 cars in the Sunday Concours d’Elegance.
What cars are we looking for?
Early Sedans/Coupes, Roadsters/SL’s, SLK’s, Convertibles
Do you have a car that would qualify? On Saturday morning we’ll line our cars up on the 18th fairway to tell our story and have all 40 of our cars on display for the enjoyment of the spectators. This should be a truly spectacular showing of a variety of Mercedes-Benz models.
We will select from the cars entered in the Saturday Car Club Showcase up to 15 cars to tell the “Mercedes-Benz Story”. Our plan is to begin the story starting with the early sedans/coupes, show the evolution of the Mercedes roadsters from the 300SL to the AMG GT roadster and finish off with a series of classic Mercedes Convertibles. These cars will be in the front row and be parked in sequence to tell the Mercedes-Benz story. The only restriction for cars to be shown on Saturday that are not in the front row is that they cannot be late models (i.e. 2013-2018 models)
Do you have a car that qualifies to be judged for the prestigious Silver Star Certification? We will also be judging for Silver Star on Saturday. Register your car for the Car Club Showcase here: msreg.com/HH2019

The Sunday Concours d’Elegance

We have secured a block of 40 rooms at the Hampton Inn, which will serve as our host hotel and
headquarters at a rate of $149.00 per night. The hotel is very close to the Port Royal golf course and will
sell out fast so you should reserve your rooms early by contacting the Hotel at 843-681-7900 and mention
that you are with the Mercedes Club. Register early to take advantage of our special rate! The hotel has
free parking, breakfast and plenty of space for those who are trailering their cars to park their trailers in
back of the hotel.
This will be a Mercedes weekend event. We’ll have a Low Country Road Rally on Friday for those who do
not participate in the Hilton Head Concours sponsored drive. On Friday night we are planning a club dinner
at a local Hilton Head eatery for those who choose not to go to the Concours Gala at the Airport.
