The I.C.E. St. Moritz 2024 A cancelled event – but a Concours of Elégance with worthy winners Announcement of the Awards by category and this year´s Best in Show

Even though The I.C.E. was challenged by the heaviest snowfalls St. Moritz had seen in years, we can still say we got the better end of it. Despite the adverse weather and the limitations imposed by the local authorities for safety reasons, the eagerly awaited Concours of Elégance of the winter season still partially took place.

The Serletta parking garage was the beating heart of St. Moritz all along the weekend and with only a few steps away from the lake itself, we hoped to be able to reach it until the end. Eventually, an entire level of the Serletta Parkhaus was transformed into a lively parc fermé, which welcomed the iconic cars participating in the concours, while catalysing the attention of enthusiasts, the public and the media coming from all over the world.

It is in this unusual place that the jury also made its considerations and then decreed the winners of the individual categories, which we are pleased to officially announce today.

Barchettas on the Lake

Talbot Lago T26 GS – 1950

The winning car is one of only five Talbot Lago T26 Grand Sport vehicles built for racing purposes and participated in several Rallies, starting from the early 1950s. In the years 1997/1998 it was thoroughly restored in Italy by Dino Cognolato under the supervision of Lukas Hüni AG and subsequently sold to a Swiss collector.

Concept Cars & One Offs

Aston Martin Bulldog – 1979

The winning car was completed in 1979 and launched in 1980, named after the Scottish plane flown by Aston Martin´s Managing Director at the time. Designed by William Towns, who was behind the design of the Lagonda and DBS, the car reached a top speed of 191mph, only limited by the MIRA straight that was not long enough. This speed was not achieved by any other car for several years. After its recent restoration, the Bulldog beated its own record.

Icons on Wheels

Delage D8-120S – 1938

The winning car was bodied and styled by Carrosserie de Villars on a Delage Chassis and was first shown at the Concours de l’Auto de Printemps in 1938. In 1996, it won First in Class in European Classics and Best in Show at the Pebble Beach Concours. Most recently, it won the Best of the Best accolade.

Open Wheels

Cooper Maserati T81 – 1962

The winning car was originally owned by the Swiss driver Lo Bonnier and competed in Formula One from 1966 until 1968, achieving his best result at the 1967 German Grand Prix held at the famous Nürburgring, finishing in P5. The car also participated in various other races, such as the International Trophy, the Swiss Championship Round and the Automobile Revue Cup in Monza, where it took victory.

Racing Legends

Ferrari 275 P – 1963

Recent archive research by Ferrari Classiche revealed that the 275 P, which had won Le Mans in 1964, had also done so in 1963 under a different chassis number. It would win the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1964, as well. This, for many experts and connoisseurs, would make the 275 P one of the most significant and valuable racing Ferraris ever.

Among these incredible pieces of automotive history, the choice of Best in Show was much debated by the Jury, which finally decided on the multi award-winning Delage D8-120S.

We would like to once again express our deepest thanks to the City of St. Moritz, to our sponsors, partners, the media, and all the participants and collaborators, who are the true strength of this great event and who still made it an event to remember.

The I.C.E. community is ready to return in 2025 with even more passion and motivation.

See you next year.
