Sponsored by Bydesign Motorsports (creators of AC Cobra replicas), this new element to the Maclean's Bridge event is an opportunity for outstanding Cobra, MG, GT40, Jaguar and other replica classics to be displayed and judged in a rigorous concours - with numbers capped at no more than 25 vehicles.
Replica classics have often by shunned by traditional concours events, despite being well built, maintained in outstanding condition, or both. Not any more! The Bydesign Concours de Facsimile will honour outstanding examples of these clones in their own dedicated concours event.
The Bydesign Concours de Facsimile is just one element of the Maclean's Bridge at Lakeside event, Queensland's largest and most colourful sports and classic car event, held at the historic Lakeside Park circuit.
Shannons Concours d'Elegance, the Interclub Team Regularity Championship, a sports & classic car auction, hosted by Pickles Auctions, and all the usual club and marque displays will make this year's Maclean's Bridge at Lakeside a must-see event. Participants will also get to take part in 'Happy Laps' on the Lakeside park track, following the conclusion of the awards presentation across both concours categories.
Public entry fees are $10 per person on both days (walk-ins only on 20/5), with $20 car & driver entry on 20/5, with $10 per additional adult (max $40 per car). Kids under 13 are admitted free both days. See the website for regularity and concours entry fees.
