If you thought St. Moritz was only a haven for jet set skiers, think again; on July 9 – 11 some of the world’s finest Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin and Jaguar motor cars will converge on the chic Swiss resort for the 17th annual British Classic Car Meeting
. The ultra-stylish event features a series of outings, a rally and Concours d'Elégance. Set against the breathtaking Alpine scenery 5,900 ft. above sea level, it’s an elegant showcase for the UK’s famed marques mentioned above as well as some historical makes like Lagonda, Daimler and Austin-Healey.
While the classic open touring Rolls-Royces are hard to beat, rarities like the bespoke Aston Martin shooting brake keep things interesting; prizes are given by marque in both pre and post-war categories, with a limited number of other pre-1960 British cars invited to take part in the Open Class. On July 10 there will be a gala dinner with entertainment and dancing at the luxurious 5-star Suvretta House hotel. Come winter St. Moritz, a favorite destination of celebs including Prince Charles, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Hugh Grant, Elizabeth Hurley and George Clooney, also hosts the Cartier World Polo Cup on Snow.
