2016 Monterey Car Week

Highlights at The Quail, a motorsports gathering

2016 Monterey Car Week
October 25, 2016

This car show is always a favorite among the vast and diverse events happening throughout the Monterey Peninsula over this busy week. Not only does the Quail offer a wide variety of the finest classic and modern day cars showcased in a beautiful setting, the diverse food vendors make this a culinary concours of its own.

Highlights of the event included the 100-year anniversary of BMW and the 50-year anniversary of Lamborghini to name a few. The Quail Event is limited to just 3,000 spectators and tickets are pricey, but it’s a must see.

Werks Reunion

The third annual event offers a spectacular array of Porsches from rare classics and race cars to current models and everything in between.

Rolex Motorsports Reunion

This event is always my favorite of the week. Held at Mazda Raceway in Sonoma, vintage racers come  from all over the world to participate in this world-class historic racing event.

In this unique setting, you can see some of the most spectacular racecars in the world up close and personal in the pits and have the opportunity to talk with the owners and drivers about these historical vehicles. I had the pleasure of viewing the races this year from the tower at the start/finish line which added a new and exciting dimension to this already amazing event.
