Villa D'Este 2019 - Come Rain or Shine

I have just returned from another great year at the Concorso D'Eleganza Villa D'Este where I had the honour of being on the Selecting Committee for a third year in a row. It was unusual to experience rain by the side of beautiful Lake Como during the event, but it added interest to the scenery! Here are some pictures from the Concours - as usual the most fabulous and illustrious motors in the world were to be found at Villa D'Este.
