  • Foreword

    Chubb Insurance is delighted to once again support Salon Priv for the

    seventh year as the Concours dElgance sponsor. Without question, Salon

    Priv is one of the most exclusive occasions in the motoring calendar and,

    as a leading insurer of the oldest classics to the rarest supercars, it is the

    perfect event for us to sponsor.

    Salon Priv is a quintessentially English affair. A stunning setting, glorious

    vehicles and wonderful hospitality are all offered to you and your guests.

    Whether you be an avid collector of classics, drive a supercar or simply

    admire the beautiful machines, there will be something for everyone at

    the 2015 Salon Priv. What could be more pleasurable than savouring the

    elegance of a classic Ferrari, whilst sipping Pommery champagne?

    Over the past years, we have been delighted that many Chubb clients have

    entered the Concours (several with great success) and well be encouraging

    more to enter for 2015. As always, the Salon Priv team will ensure that

    entering a car or a bike in the event will be effortless.

    We know that all cars are not created equal and neither are Concours

    events. Salon Priv will give you and your guests an exceptional experience,

    so we do hope that youll join us for a most memorable day.

  • Welcome to the Tenth Edition of Salon Priv, the UKs premier Supercar Show

    & Concours dElgance.

    Now, in celebrating our Tenth Anniversary, we are about to raise the bar even

    higher with a move to a spectacular new venue widely regarded as Britains

    Greatest Palace; Blenheim Palace.

    Salon Priv will carry over all of the attributes that have made it such a

    popular occasion with UK as well as international owners and collectors. It

    retains its convivial atmosphere and exquisite hospitality that it has always

    been so renowned for and it remains a place where old friends meet and new

    friendships are forged.

    With a new layout and more space to allow for larger and more frequent

    parades, the Chubb Insurance Concours dElgance will come to life on the

    South Lawn of Blenheim Palace on Thursday 3rd September. Whether you are

    an entrant or an enthusiastic visitor, the stage is set for a sensational event and

    so we look forward to seeing you there.

    Best Wishes,

    Andrew Bagley

  • Blenheim Palace


    Blenheim Palace is a spectacular Stately Home situated in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, and was a gift from Queen Anne and a grateful nation to the 1st Duke of Marlborough following his famous

    victory at the Battle of Blenheim in 1704. It remains the principal residence of the Duke of Marlborough and it is the only non-royal, non-episcopal, Stately Home in England to hold the title

    of Palace. One of Englands largest houses, it was built between 1705 and 1722 and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. It was designed by the famous architect Sir John

    Vanbrugh in the rare English Baroque style and is surrounded by over 2,000 acres of Capability Brown landscaped Parkland and stunning Formal Gardens which represent a perfect example

    of the English landscape garden movement and style. Famed as the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace is regarded as Britains Greatest Palace.


    The South Lawn of Blenheim Palace provides the perfect setting for the newly configured Salon Priv. Allowing the event to be fully enclosed and private whilst the Palace and Formal Gardens

    remain open to the general public, clearly demonstrates the flexibility of the venue. Visitor access to the event area is a short walk via the Snake gate which connects directly with the parking

    area. A separate entrance is available for speedy and efficient set-up and dismantle.


    Blenheim Palace is situated in the picturesque and historic town of Woodstock, 8 miles North West of Oxford on the A44 Evesham Road, approximately one hours drive from both London and

    Birmingham. Stratford-upon-Avon is only 45 minutes away and locations such as Manchester and Leeds now become easily accessible. Approaching Oxford on the M40, exit at junction 9 and

    follow signs to Blenheim Palace. From other directions take the A44 exit from the Oxford by-pass. There is unlimited free car parking at the venue. The nearest main line train station is Oxford

    which is approximately 20 minutes away and shuttles will be available to take exhibitors and guests to and from the event. For those attending from further afield, there is the option of arriving

    by helicopter or indeed private jet with Oxford Airport and the smaller private airport 5 minutes away, making the event more accessible than ever before for both UK and overseas guests.

    Local Amenities

    Salon Priv is set to become a destination event; an event to which people drive and should they wish, stay overnight in 1 of the 40 plus local hotels. Historic Woodstock, with its beautiful

    boutique shops, restaurants and hotels, sits alongside Blenheim Palace and is just a short walk from the event.
