Patrick Lesueur, born in the quiet village of Brunoy on the outskirts of Paris in 1952, has motoring in his blood. His grandfather, a personal friend of Gabriel Voisin and André Citroën, was César Marchand, who between 1925 and 1937 broke some 85 per cent of all existing endurance records. After graduating from the Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1970, Patrick began drawing illustrated strips for the popular magazine Pilote. He remained with that company until the mid-1980s, producing some fifty books of illustrated strips. In the 1990s Patrick started writing for classic car magazines, with particular emphasis on American cars, especially the products of the Ford Motor Company – he owns a 1952 Lincoln Capri hardtop. However, most of the twenty books he has written for French publisher ETAI have been about popular French cars. Now there is an English translation available of his book on Concours d'Elegance.

Concours D'Elegance:  Dream Cars and Lovely Ladies Cover

Surely no form of contest has ever equalled the marriage of luxury and ostentation offered by the great Concours d’Élégance. The sheer magnificence is just as fascinating now as it was in the first half of the 20th Century.
