Talacrest At The Seven Concours At The Riyadh Car Show

John Collins of Talacrest was delighted to help out, when approached by his good friend Abdul Rahman Al-Yemni to assist the organisers of the Seven Concours with the collation of a special selection of cars to form the basis of a world class concours at the Riyadh Car Show.

John who has extensive dealings in the Middle East, brought approximately $250m worth of classic road and racing cars to the event, from sports prototypes, to some very special unique coachbuilt Ferraris. The show was heralded a great success and will doubtless act as a template for future events as part of the Crown Prince’s 2030 vision, to promote tourism in the region.
