Check out all our vids and pics from the fabulous 2021 Concours at Hampton Court Palace

This was my third year attending the Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court and it’s safe to say it’s become my favourite classic car event of the year now. The weather is always great, the variety and quality of cars is sensational, the setting is spectacular and quite simply all the best people come here!

This year I got to meet a childhood hero – the incredible Aston Martin Bulldog (now reborn) in person, got my first look at the brilliant Lotus Emira (and enjoyed a splendid lunch with the Lotus team) and found an unexpected star in the form of a hot-rodder classic Lancia Aurelia. Plus 95 British cars. Thanks so much to my buddy Reza Adil for all his help producing this content – see all our pics and videos:
