Plymouth, MI – After Hagerty acquired the Concours d’Elegance of America in March, and made a June 30 announcement that it will move the event to Detroit in 2022, this weekend’s concours is a farewell of sorts.

Not only will the event move from the Inn at St. John’s — its home for the past decade — to the Detroit Institute of the Arts, it will be held in September rather than July.

But this year’s event will be remembered as Michigan’s first large-scale, open-air automotive celebration in more than 12 months, for its special display of a

multiple race-winning 1960 Omega Jaguar that was test driven by Sir Jackie Stewart, and much more.

The Jaguar will be offered without reserve at Worldwide Auctioneers’ Sept. 3-4 Auburn sale, and its display at the concours was organized by Jaguar Clubs of North America (JCNA) and Jaguar Affiliates Group of Michigan (JAGM).

The concours will also honor Moray Callum, Vice President Design Ford Motor Company, as the 2021 Enthusiast of the Year, and will pay tribute to Joseph Cassini III of West Orange, New Jersey as Collector of the Year. Cassini will show a selection of his award-winning vehicles at Sunday’s concours.
