Concours d’Cancelation Presented by Hagerty | Submit Your Entry Today

Concours events aren’t just the glue that hold together a huge community of car enthusiasts, they also serve as significant charity functions that raise millions of dollars for local and national causes every year.

But this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, almost every concours event in America has been canceled. Unsurprisingly, this has put a lot of strain on the organizations that plan these concours events, and as a result many are struggling. Some are facing such hard times that they may not be able to continue after the pandemic. That’s where we come in.

Introducing the Concours d’Cancelation presented by Hagerty: a virtual event to benefit canceled concours and their associated charities.

To learn more about how the event will work and how you can participate, keep reading the page below or visit the Concours d'Cancelation website at

How It Works:

This event is open to all multi-marque, charity-based concours events around the world, and each event may invite up to 10 car collectors whose cars they would like to see included in the concours. These “best of” contenders will make up roughly half the field.

The rest of the field will be made up of submissions from the general public. Submissions will be accepted until the end of the day on Friday, October 30, 2020, after which point entries will be turned over to a selection committee. The selection committee will choose their favorite submissions to be considered for judging in an appropriate class.

While there will be no cost to enter or spectate, we ask all who participate in or enjoy the Concours d’Cancelation to donate what they can to one or more of the participating concours’ funds. Visit the Concours d'Cancelation website at to view the participating concours events that you can support.

Winners will be chosen and awards presentation will be finished by Sunday, November 8, 2020, after which point a video of the awards presentation will be shared on the Classic Motorsports YouTube channel.

Car: 1965 Lotus Elan

Owners: Tim and Margie Suddard

Location: Ormond Beach, FL

Proposed Class: Sports & GT Cars (1960-1969)

Details: This late Series 1 Elan was found in a field near Traverse City Michigan. It was badly broken and beaten after getting badly damaged in an accident in the late sixties and left outside for nearly 40 years.

We found this car, with its original engine and transmission and painstakingly, and correctly restored it in our home shop in less than two years. Our goal was accomplished to have the car done and on the lawn at the Amelia Island Concours in 2018.

1952 Miller H/modified SCCA race car . Now owned by William Connery of Oaks,Pa. Enter in the 1946 to 1962 race car class.refitted in 1962 with a Lotus Eleven body, by then owners  Gil Knudsen(Bendix corporation fame) and Preston Rush. it became known as the Bogus-Lotus (one of one). they raced mostly on the west coast.I first noticed this car for sale on several sites on and off over several years ,then found it on an auction site with  3 hours to go and left a bid which got me the car.  The car is cleaned up and cared for not restored . Powered by  a highly modified Crosley engine with 4 speed trans, 4 wheel disc brakes and a Fiat Topolino front suspension it runs and drives and the  only real change was a slightly smaller/lower seat so i could fit in(Mr Rush who drove ,was a very small man) the #151 was one of the last numbers run on the car at some of it's west coast tracks. Mr Rush entered an early Miller using #150 and later tha Bogus-Lotus with #151 .As a Lotus fan(I have a 1968 seven) I'd put this car on display in the house if I ever widen a doorway. no one seemed to really want it and it had passed around thru several owners over the years. thank you for allowng me to show it here.

1919 Indian Powerplus

Dave Destler

Canoga Park, CA

Motorcycle Class

This 1919 Indian Powerplus, featuring the optional Cradle Spring Frame, was on display in semi-restored condition at Otis Chandler’s Vintage Museum of Transportation and Wildlife until 1997. After purchase from Chandler, it was then completely dismantled and accurately restored by Mike Doom of MD Cycles in Canoga Park, CA. It was test-run after completion, then drained of fluids and displayed at many concours event, winning numerous Best in Show and Best in Class awards over the years. All sheetmetal and other parts are original to this machine (other than engine bearings and rings), with no reproduction components. All nickel-plating is correct per factory original. The "Indian Red" hue is per original factory formula.
