Presented by Club Laverda Qld Inc. (CLQ), CONCOURS 2015 is a static motorcycle display offering some 60 trophies and $2000 for the best machine entered on the day.
As such, it is the only event of its kind in Australia engaging exhibitors and motorcycle enthusiasts from the entire east coast.
Major Sponsors of CONCOURS include Penrite Oil, Morgan & Wacker Motorcycles, Brisbane Motorcycles, Team Moto Motorcycles, and Bayside Yamaha.
CONCOURS judging is done by respected motorcycle enthusiasts from a variety of backgrounds including popular motorcycle journalism. The winner of Best in Show from last year will be a guest judge this year. The judges’ decision is final.
Again this year, the popular DYNO is making an appearance at Concours with trophies offered for the most horsepower for machines under 750cc, over 750cc, and V-Twin machines.
CONCOURS 2015 at Cleveland will be the fifth event at Cleveland and the 27th annual Concours D’Elegance presented by CLQ – the result of the Story Bridge Concours (running for some 22 years) outgrowing the Kangaroo Point venue at Captain Burke Park.
A $10.00 gate fee applies to patrons over 15 years and includes on-site motorcycle parking. An additional $10.00 entry fee applies to enthusiasts wishing to enter their machines for judging and trophies and to be eligible for the $2000 prize for “Best in Show”. Machines entered for judging must be in running order.
The success of CONCOURS 2014 is assured providing the weather is fair. Should wet weather prevail the event will be postponed to a date to be set. Visit www.clublaverdaqld.com for information regarding postponement in the days prior to the event.
The event is alcohol free and as such is a family day raising funds for the Make a Wish Foundation and the Racesafe Medical Team. Over the past 11 years CLQ has given some $65,000 to this worthy charity. ($10,000 was the donation to Make a Wish from Concours in 2014)
CONCOURS attracts motorcycle trade stalls (30 approx.), motorcycle enthusiast club displays (35 approx.), and motorcycle enthusiasts both local and interstate. Entertainment includes a wide variety of food vendors, free face painting, kiddie’s rides, and live music provided by the popular local act, the Dave Ritter Band.
At midday a Make a Wish Foundation representative makes a speech introducing a Make a Wish recipient. At 2.30 trophy presentations for the actual Concours D’Elegance winners is conducted.
