This spring event was held in the 'Super Hangar' at the ex Royal Air Force station at St Athan. The failure in 2010 of the MOD and other agencies to establish a Military Defence Academy here subsequent to the closure of the base, the largest maintenance unit in the RAF, led to the site being nominated as one of several enterprise zones in Wales though a section of the old base has been retained for military use. In February 2016 Aston Martin announced that it had chosen St Athan as the preferred site for the manufacture of its new DBX model utilising the 'Super Hangar' that had been built at considerable cost and had very soon afterward became something of an embarrassment to those who had it constructed. It is expected that the first of the new models will roll off the production line in 2020. In this image owners are seen preparing their vehicles, toothbrushes to hand, for judging in the Concours event held in recognition of this new venture at St Athan. Woe betide the person who placed the coffee cup on the rear spoiler of this vehicle should it tip over!
