Registration open for Chattanooga Motorcar Festival Road Rallye and Concours d’Elegance


Registration is now open for two of the featured events scheduled for the 2021 Chattanooga Motorcar Festival, set for Oct. 15-17 in downtown Chattanooga.

The Festival encourages those who participated in the inaugural 2019 Rallye and Concours events and all new entrants to send in their applications by the deadline of Sept. 10, 2021. Applications can be found HERE. Applicants will be contacted directly upon approval, denial or, if needed, added to the waiting list.

The West Village Road Rallye will be conducted on both Friday and Saturday, Oct. 15 and 16, and will start both days at 8:30 a.m. from the Westin Hotel Chattanooga. The Concours d’Elegance is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 17. Concours cars will be available for viewing on the streets of the West Village from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. on Sunday.

“One of the keys to a successful Festival is having fabulous and dynamic cars that will participate in each event, so we’re encouraging car owners to send in their applications soon,” said Ken Gross, Concours Chairman.

Presented by DeFoor Brothers and hosted by Fifty Plus Racing Foundation, Inc., the 2021 Chattanooga Motorcar Festival includes a full three days of activities in Chattanooga’s West Village, the Tennessee Riverfront, and the Westin Hotel Chattanooga. New sites for this year’s Festival are the Chattanooga Marriott Hotel and Convention Center, the Tivoli Theatre, ATT Stadium, and the new Hotel Indigo located in the West Village.

New events planned for 2021 include concerts, Mecum car collectors’ presentation, wheel-to-wheel racing on a new track currently under construction, and multiple celebrity appearances throughout the weekend. As it did in its inaugural year in 2019, the Festival will focus on vehicles of all types, and experiences that engage, excite and entertain the entire family.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer a full weekend of family-friendly events again this year at the Chattanooga Motorcar Festival,” said Brian Redman, the 2021 Grand Ambassador of the Festival. “We are expecting to be on the other side of the pandemic and working hard on adding even more exciting and fun activities for all.”

The 2021 Festival features the Concours d’Elegance, West Village Road Rallye, Mecum Auctions and The Pace Grand Prix at the Bend. Other family-friendly events will be scheduled and announced later. Additional information may be found at
