With over 25 years experience in event management and production in Australia, the USA and South-East Asia, Old Boy Paul Mathers (1984) has certainly managed some major exhibitions and events. Formerly the Event Director at Motorclassica in Australia for 10 years, Paul was recently announced as Event Director & Concours Chairman of Auto Royale.

From 17 – 19 July 2020, at the ancestral home of the Spencer family in Northamptonshire, Auto Royale will present the British International Concours d’Elegance which aims to set a new standard and join the list of quintessential English summer events. Recently quoted between USD 8 – 10 million, the first car publicly confirmed to make its UK debut at the inaugural Auto Royale at Althorp is the rare and stunning ‘Shark Nose’1962 Ferrari 196 SP.

As a passionate collector and an enthusiast of British motoring himself, Paul is excited to take all he has learnt overseas to the world’s biggest classic and historic car market. He said: “It’s such a pleasure to finally give car enthusiasts a vision of what will be an incredible line up at our first Auto Royale at Althorp. This stunning Ferrari truly captures the spirit of Auto Royale and our mission to bring rare and spectacular machines to be enjoyed in the surrounds of this wonderful family estate at Althorp.”
