The 50th Edition of Concours d’Elegance will be held on September 26, 2021, at Nairobi’s Ngong Race Course.

This annual series organized by the Alfa Romeo Owners Club cancelled the 2020 edition due to the COVID 19 pandemic. 

“It is likely that the motorsport calendar for 2021 will be nearly a replica of what it should have been this year had the disruption not occurred. Accordingly, the Alfa Romeo Owners Club anticipates that the Golden Jubilee Africa Concours d’Elegance will be listed for September 26th, 2021,” Peter Wanday, Chairman Alfa Romeo Owners Club and Bob Dewar, Concours d’Elegance Event Organiser said in a joint statement.
