About Concours & the SCCA

SCCALogo2019.png

Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) was founded in 1944 and now has membership in excess of 60,000.  SCCA’s San Francisco Region (SFR) followed in 1948, boasts about 3,400 members, and encompasses the geographic area from, and including, Fresno to the Oregon border.  Although SCCA’s focus has always been on racing, sanctioning road races throughout the country, SFR has also sanctioned Concours d’Elegance - competitions of elegance – since 1952.  Concours are exhibits of collector automobiles judged on their quality of restoration to original and authentic, as well as their condition, preparation and operation. 

 

SCCA provides judges, field crew and scorers at each SCCA-sanctioned concours.  All judges are volunteers and deemed expert on specific marques (manufacturers).  All judged automobiles should be, essentially, as they appeared on the showroom floor.  Each auto is judged beginning with 100 points.  Points are then deducted for deviations from original, imperfections, poor preparation, etc.  The highest three point-finishers in each class are awarded trophies.  But, for an automobile to win its class, it must score at least 80 points; second place requires at least 70 points; third place at least 60 points.  SCCA only judges vehicles model-year 1990 and older.

 

SFR-SCCA is actively seeking new judges, field crew and scoring assistants.  If you are interested, please contact Chief-of-Concours Jim Perell at: japerell@icloud.com.
