2021 Spring Concours Cancelled

 | Published on 2/12/2021
AMOC Spring Concours 5th and 6th June 2021.

As matters surrounding the pandemic are not getting much clearer regarding social events, we have regrettably taken the early decision to cancel the Spring Concours at Loseley.

This decision is, in truth, being forced upon us as the location is very close to the present outbreak of the South African variant and the area is currently under severe lockdown. Whilst we would hope it can be contained within the coming months there will be concerns about our duty of care to staff and members, quite apart from the issues at the venue.

Mark Donoghue and I have agreed that the physical aspects of judging members cars in the expected Aston Martin Owners Club Concours fashion cannot take place due to the requirement for close proximity by the judges and the implications of needing to be in contact with the member’s car throughout.

We have not taken this decision lightly and we are very actively looking into arranging a more stripped down “Club Day” event to take place around the same time. Our intention is that this format will enable us to meet up and socialise at allowable distances and regain some true Club social spirit. Arrangements are at an early stage but we will keep you informed as soon as details firm up.
