The Lone Star Region Porsche Club of America held its second Concours d’Elegance of 2018 on Saturday the 9th of February at Porsche of West Houston in conjunction with the 70th Anniversary of the Porsche brand.
The weather held out and the venue was perfect for conducting this event as there were several activities and food for all in recognition of the 70th Anniversary.
Marianna Brasel, General Manager, and her team at Porsche of West Houston was our premier sponsor for the 3rd year in a row and always does a fantastic job with our Concours. I cannot thank Marianna and her team enough.
I would also like to thank our other sponsors Eric Petree and John Gray from Xpel Protective Films and Robin Martinez, owner of Flowers of Kingwood for all of their help and support. The tacos, donuts, and coffee were provided by Robin and went fast!
The competition was strong as there were 47 cars in attendance competing for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each of the 11 Concours d’Elegance Divisions as well as a People’s Choice and Judge’s Choice Awards. There were 11 first time Concours participants with 6 of them taking home an award!
