“Are you good men/women and true?”

“Are you good men and true?”, so asked William Shakespeare in Act 3 Scene 3 of Much Ado About Nothing. 422 years later we can ask the question of the ladies and gentlemen selected for the Jury for the 3rd edition of the AXA Sydney Harbour Concours d’Elegance.

Again ably led by Chief Judge, Andrew Bagley, Chairman of Salon Privé, who may well be in absentia due to international travel restrictions, the Jury is composed of two very highly experienced ICJAG members John Virgo and Sam Movizio (Pebble Beach, 21 Gun Salute, Motorclassica, inter alia), along with the returning Jacquie Hayes (aka Madam Wheels), and making her judging debut on the concours field, Mars Marsianic, the stylist and fashion guru who is EveryBODYknowsMARS.
