How the 50th edition of Concours d’Elegance in Kenya went down at the Ngong Racecourse

The 2022 Africa Golden Concours d’Elegance competition reached its conclusion on Sunday 25th September 2022 at Ngong Racecourse, and Adrian Wroe was declared the champion.

Following the Covid-19 outbreak, the event made a comeback for the first time in 2019 when Wroe drove the show-stopping convoy in his Ford Tudor Modela 193.

Peter Wanday, the chairman of the Alpha Romeo’s Club, was ecstatic after this year’s competition.

“The level of preparation has improved quite a bit, which is fantastic. Some of the vehicles that previously didn’t reach the podium are now doing so. I believe that during COVID-19, individuals had no choice but to work on their automobiles and bicycles, remarked Wanday.

At the 50th Concours d’Elegance, vehicle enthusiasts of all ages enjoyed themselves among the pomp and circumstance at the Ngong Racecourse grounds.

To defeat 70 enthusiasts who took part in the 2022 Concours d’Elegance held on Sunday, September 25, 2022, at the Ngong Race Course in Nairobi, Wroe, who displayed a 1930 Ford Tudor, got 282 points.

Since its founding in 1971, the Kenyan Concours d’Elégance has been held annually. It is sponsored by the FIM Africa and the Kenya Motorsports Federation, and it is organized by the Alfa Romeo Owner’s Club Kenya. The event now draws an average of 10,000 visitors and has become Kenya’s largest motoring event. The Commercial Bank of Africa is the sponsor (CBA).

EABL Marketing Manager for the Beer Category Catherine Ndung’u stated during the event that the premium occasion was a reflection of the White Cap Crisp brand pillars of luxury, fashion, and gastronomy.

“Consumers are always changing. Through venues like the Concours d’Elegance, as a brand, we aim to provide our customers with experiences of the highest caliber, said Ms. Ndung’u.

The Alfa Romeo Owners Club organized the event, which was open to all types of automobiles and motorcycles.

Argentina, Australia, England, Germany, Malawi, Mauritius, Mexico, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zanzibar, and Zimbabwe have all sent entries to the competition over the years.
