More than 200 of the collector car world’s finest and rarest motorcars will decorate the rolling grasses of Quail Lodge & Golf Club, as The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering returns to Monterey Car Week on Friday, August 24th. The luxury-lifestyle event now in its 16th year will feature six international culinary pavilions, fine wines and food carts spread out amongst an array of classic automobiles and motorcycles from the world’s most preeminent sports and racing brands.
This year’s event will be highlighted by two new classes praising German innovation: “70 Years of the Iconic Porsche 356″ and “The Alois Ruf Reunion.” The 356 display will showcase Porsche’s history and legacy in the form of the marque’s first production sports car, while the Ruf class will showcase an exclusive collection from the legendary performance car manufacturer and tuner Alois Ruf. Both displays will complement the 2018 event themes alongside a host of traditional classes including Pre-War Sports and Racing, Custom Coachwork, Supercars, and The Great Ferraris.
“Each year, The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering offers a one-of-a-kind experience to passionate enthusiasts from around the globe,” said Gordon McCall, Director of Motorsports for The Peninsula Signature Events. “Our 2018 featured Porsche and Ruf classes will be the perfect additions to our internationally-acclaimed lineup of sports and racing motorcars, creating one of the best shows in our history to date.”
Guests will be treated to a unique garden-party setting highlighted by the array of culinary pavilions, award-winning wine vendors, and a Fireside Chat Series. Guests will also be invited to attend the Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction taking place on the Quail Lodge Farm Field.
