For the past six years, Jeremy Jackson-Sytner has been the brains behind the award-winning ‘Royal’ concours car events. The motoring spectacles have been held at Windsor Castle and several other British Royal palaces.
Now, he’s stepping down from the company behind the events, to set up his own consultancy service – promising a concierge serve to guarantee owners access to the world’s finest and most exclusive concours events. He’ll make it as painless as possible for them to attend, too.
Jackson-Sytner will oversee all aspects of attending an event, from preparing the car to a concours-winning standard, to arranging shipping, to sorting travel arrangements and hotels.
It’s apparently just the sort of things owners of the world’s rarest cars want. There’s been an “explosion” in exotic car events over the past few years and “your car cold be the entry ticket to a long list of stylish gatherings from Essex to Japan”.
Arguing that there are lots of companies that look after the cars but none thus far that take care of their owners, Jackson-Sytner said that such events are “all about the human experience.
“I’d determined to ensure that my clients get the maximum out of their participation… and with the minimum of hassle.”
And because there can never be enough high-end motoring events for owners to show their cars (and bolster their provenance) at, ‘Mr. Concours’ himself will also act as consultant for organisations who want to start up their own concours d’elegance. Should the Queen fancy starting up her own cars ‘n coffee event at Buckingham Palace, she knows the man to call.
