The world-renowned event on August 24th will debut special displays celebrating “70 Years of the Iconic Porsche 356” and “The Alois Ruf Reunion,” while offering guests international cuisine and signature beverages from six culinary pavilions
Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif. (March 29, 2018) – 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. Now in its 16th year, the luxury-lifestyle event will feature six international culinary pavilions, fine wines, and a family-friendly atmosphere, along with 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 ultra-rare Ruf class will showcase an exclusive collection from the legendary performance car manufacturer and tuner. 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.”
As always, the show will offer a family- and pet-friendly environment. 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 concurrently on the Quail Lodge Farm Field.
