Concours d'Lemons Down Under

Free entry for everyone

The 'Concours d'Lemons Down Under' is a much-talked about event (not in a good way) which has somehow wormed its way out of Monterey Car Week (the action packed-program of car events supporting the Pebble Beach Concours), and through a combination of bribery and blackmail, coerced a local car club into helping stage it!

Intrigued? Well, the Concours d'Lemons Down Under promises an eclectic showcase the world's worst cars and celebrates "the oddball, mundane and truly awful of the automotive world!"

Open to all types of vehicles which have questionable engineering and roadworthy standards, the Concours d'Lemons Down Under will see owners eager to win $2 recycled trophies in categories such as "Needlessly Complex Italian", "Rueful Britannia", and "Der Self-SatisfiedKrauttenWagen" to name but a few! Bribing the celebrity judges is encouraged!

The low-point of the day will be the public humiliation of the winner of the "Worst of Show" award - most likely to be presented by someone picked off the street ten minutes before the ceremony!

Don't miss this celebration of Aussie kangaroo karts, rust buckets, misfits, mistakes and the worst of the automotive world! It's FREE for everyone and will be held at Edwards Park on Saturday 23rd of September, 2017 at West Terrace in the Adelaide parklands from 10am until 3pm!

Donations for the Royal Flying Doctor Service via "Beauties Amongst the Beasts" will be appreciated. The girls will be running a sausage sizzle, bake sale and flogging raffle tickets throughout the day!
