Concours Events

Concours d'Elegance General Information

The FCA 2019 Concours d'Elegance and Coppa Bella Macchina will be held on Thursday, November 7th at the Scottsdale Sports Complex, an easy 20-minute drive from the Doubletree Host Hotel.

The Concours will be held on two huge flat grass soccer fields with a backdrop of mountain peaks. There is plenty of room to stage the cars with lots of space between them. We’ll have a large tent where lunch will be served and the Mercato exhibitors will be around the perimeter of the field.

Parking
There are large public parking areas adjacent to the field. Trucks and trailers will be assigned a dedicated lot near the Concours field.

Concours Entry
To enter your car in the Concours, for judging, or "display only", you must register as a “Primary FCA member”.

Cars will be placed on the field between 6:30 am and 9:00 am on Thursday, November 7th and judging will take place from 9 a.m. until noon. Class awards will be presented on the field about 2pm.

Cars must remain on the field until after the class awards ceremony has completed, at about 3pm.

For a complete overview of the FCA Concours process, please download a copy of the full presentation on the Concours, Coppa Bella Macchina, Coppa GT and Futuro Classico.

The IAC/PFA Guidelines for Concours entrants from the International Advisory Committee for the Preservation of the Ferrari Automobile will give you greater insight into how cars are judged and what factors are more and less important to the final score.

Concours Seminar 2019

Whether you have a present or future interest in entering a car in the FCA Concours, you should make a point of attending the Concours Seminar which will be held at the Doubletree host hotel approx. 4 pm on Wednesday, November 6th. Led by Chief Concours Judge, Chris Current, this is a unique opportunity to learn more and ask questions about the entire Concours process.

 

Concours

Judged Concours  

For Ferraris that are at least 5 years old (built on or before November 7, 2014). They will be judged against a standard for originality and authenticity. If you are interested in knowing how original/authentic your Ferrari is, please enter your Ferrari(s) for the Concours when you register for the Meet. (Note: Car must achieve 97 points or better to win a Platino)
For full details about Judging: IAC/PFA Guidelines for Concours entrants

 

Preservation Class

For Ferraris that are at least 30 years old (built on or before November 7, 1989) and have been kept as original as possible.

Cars can enter for either the regular concours class judging OR for preservation judging, but not both. Note that cars in the Preservation Class are held to a different standard than in regular Concours Class judging. In the Preservation Class the priority is given more to unrestored originality and less to overall condition.

Therefore while a particular car might be penalized for a deteriorated condition in the regular Concours Class, that same car's deficiencies are less likely to be penalized in the Preservation Class, enabling an unrestored car to score higher in the Preservation Class than it might in the regular Concours Class.

It is recognized that most cars have had some repair over the years and we are looking to see how much care was taken to preserve as much of the original paint or interior as possible.  Download Preservation Class Guidance

Futuro Classico

For Ferraris less than five years old (built after November 7, 2014). Judges will evaluate these cars for total originality with all the options and accessories that came with the car. Successful entrants will receive a certificate and a complete photo record for future reference and to confirm authenticity. A maximum of 10 entries are accepted each year. You are advised to sign up early. Download Futuro Classico Evaluation Guidelines

Coppa Events

Coppa Bella Macchina

This is a 100% pass or fail test to see if everything on your Ferrari operates as it should, both while parked and while being driven over a short road course. Only cars that first receive a platinum award in the Concours earlier in the day will be judged in the Coppa Bella Macchina.

Requirement - Entrants must receive 97 points (Platinum) or higher in the Concours or Preservation Class before they are eligible to compete in the CBM.

To enter the Coppa Bella Macchina, you must sign up for both the Judged Concours (or Preservation Class) and the Coppa Bella Macchina when you register for the Meet. Note that entries for the CBM are limited so you are advised to sign up early. Download Coppa Bella Macchina Competition Rules and Test Requirements.

The Coppa Bella Macchina evaluation and road test will take place starting about 3:30 pm on Thursday at a designated area near the concours field.

For further information concerning the CBM event, contact Leslie Blinn at labalamo@sbcglobal.net

Coppa GT

The Coppa GT Award is the highest award an individual can receive at the FCA Annual Meet. To qualify to compete for this award, the car must first receive a platinum award in the Concours and then must pass the Coppa Bella Macchina evaluation. In the Coppa GT, the car's owner must demonstrate his/her driving capabilities on the track, taking the car into consideration. No more than three (3) Coppa GTs are awarded each year. A newer car with more modern equipment will not have an advantage over an older Ferrari. To enter this competition, be sure to check the boxes for Concours judging, Coppa Bella Macchina, and Coppa GT. Of course, Coppa GT entrants must also sign up for the 2-day track event at the Apex Motor Club.
