The makes' clubs are high-class hosts! More than 600 collectors cars are expected on 6th September in the Chantilly domain, the theatre of the much sought-after Grand Prix des Clubs awarded by the Moynat Company.
The clubs that are faithful to Peter Auto display their cars on a regular basis at circuits where historic races take place. At Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille, they will be at the very heart of the event thanks to the Grand Prix des Clubs awarded for the best decor on the theme of "Déjeuner sur l'herbe".
Thus, 36 candidates will try to follow in the footsteps of the Delahaye club which, last year, won the favours of the jury, by combining rare cars with a particularly polished presentation: wooden garden furniture, white table cloths floral decorations in the middle of the tables, and simple yet refined clothes for all the participants.
To allow the participants to give full rein to their imagination each car is on display in a 25 to 40 m2 space. The clubs chosen are grouped by nationality and spread around the château on lawns covering four hectares. More than 600 collectors cars are expected.

• While the Grand Prix des Clubs is aimed at pre-1966 cars, the more recent vehicles will be on show in the Collection and Supercar zones in front of the main entry to the domain.
• The Bonhams auction on Saturday 5th September offers a unique occasion to join the ranks of collectors.
