A look at one of the Northeast's most prestigious events.
The 2022 edition of the Audrain Newport Concours & Motor Week has come and gone, leaving fantastic memories, images, and awards behind. For the prominent concourse event, 65 judges from five countries and 180 cars from the USA and Europe showed up in hopes of taking home one of the prestigious class awards.
As the automobiles laid out on the lawn at The Breakers mansion, the former home of the Vanderbilt family, the judges and guests perused around each and every one of them. For the guests, it was a chance to see some incredibly rare models that are hardly ever shown. As for the judges, they peered over every detail in search of the class winners.
For the coveted Best In Show award, which was given to the 1930 Bentley Speed Six owned by William Medcalf of Vintage Bentley (seen above). The People's Choice award was handed to the 1931 Bugatti Type 51 Dubos Coupe from the Nethercutt Collection (seen below).
“I am proud of everyone involved with this year’s event and thrilled we were able to give car people the opportunity to get together and share their stories and create new memories,” said Audrain CEO Donald Osborne. “We were thrilled to share Newport with everyone in attendance and I am sure they came away with a newfound love for our island and the hospitality they received. Our team will continue to look for ways to elevate the experience for future Motor Weeks and establish our place in the global concours world.”
