CBA hosted a gala dinner at the Panafric Hotel for the 110 competitors in the Africa Concours d’Elegance. Chris Pasha, the CBA Group Head of Marketing, complimented the Alfa Romeo Owners Club for the high standard of the 47th Concours in the annual series and congratulated the overall winners Diccon Wilcock and Sati Jabbal and the 21 class winners.
While presenting the top car and motorcycle awards Chris Pasha said, “The event was one of the most close fought in the series with Diccon Wilcock’s 1934 Railton finishing one point ahead of the 1952 MG TD sports car of his wife Julia. Diccon also had the satisfaction of winning the pre 1940 class and his team took home the best team car awards.”
“The tussle for the top motorcycle was equally nail biting with Sati Jabbal’s 1925 DKW finishing with only a one point margin from the 1929 New Henley of Johannesburg based Bevan Beckmann. It was a great day for Sati who also won the up to 900cc street bike class and the category for competition motorcycles. In addition he captured the award for the best motorcycle costume.”
In his speech Peter Wanday, the Alfa Romeo Owners Club Chairman, commented, “The competitors from outside Kenya who contested this year’s CBA Africa Concours d’Elegance took home 33 of the prizes. This shows the improving standard of preparation by visiting classic car and motorcycle enthusiasts who gave the 47th Concours international status.”
“Johannesburg based Bevan Beckmann who represented the Vintage Motorcycle Club of South Africa finished second overall with his 1929 New Henley one point behind ace Kenya motorcycle restorer Sati Jabbal. Arusha classic car enthusiast Tor Allan was placed eleventh overall with his 1966 Peugeot 404 finishing in front of 62 other cars in the classiest event on the Kenya motor sport calendar.”
