At the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2018 in the Northern Italian municipality of Cernobbio the overriding theme is “Hollywood on the Lake”.

From the 25th to the 27th of May 2018 the grounds of the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este and the gardens belonging to the Villa Erba on Lake Como will become the perfect cinematic backdrop to this magnificent event. The “script” for the historical automobile and motorcycle beauty pageant is now starting to come together. Responsibility for choosing participants lies with the selecting committees who have created four more categories in which the glamorous main protagonists can compete for the attention of both public and jury.

Experts have chosen to combine the announcement of the categories with a final call to aspiring performers for the as-yet unfilled roles in this magnificent production. BMW Group Classic has hosted the pageant of rare beauties on Lake Como in conjunction with the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este since 2005. Thanks in no small part to its choice field of entrants, it is generally recognised to be the world’s most exclusive beauty competition for historic motor vehicles. The final categories now reflect the full spectrum of the history of both the automobile and the motorcycle.

Eight Years and Six Categories

Now in its eighth year, the Concorso di Motociclette in Cernobbio has created six categories for participants, five of which have already been confirmed.

Class A
Golden Years for American Motorcycles (1907 – 1917)
Class B
Luxury on 3 Wheels – Sidecars in the 1920s and 1930s (1920 – 1939)
Class C
Winning Italian Singles – 250cc Grand Prix Motorcycles (1949 – 1963)
Class D

The sixth class, which, at this point in time, has not yet been confirmed, will be announced in early 2018.

which have been perfectly maintained in their original condition.
