Monterey Car Week officially started this morning with the gathering of the Quail Rally

This year’s Monterey Car Week officially started this morning with the gathering of the Quail Rally cars in front of the Quail Lodge. As in previous years Sir Michael Kadoorie invited a few of his close friends to start the week with a relaxed driving tour into the Monterey hinterland. Again almost 3 dozen cars ranging from a pre-war Rolls Royce to the newest Bentley were lined up at the lawn for a group photo before leaving to the exclusive tour that will arrive tomorrow evening at the McCall Jet Center party.

Pebble Beach Tour d´Elegance ... the highlight of the week

Not few think that the Tour d´Elegance of the Concours is the highlight of the week when the cars could be seen in their natural habit, on the street. Once invented to proof that the cars can actually drive further than from the trailer to the show field and maybe once over the ramp the tour not only gives those not fortunate enough to get on the field on Sunday the opportunity to see a good portion of the cars but also for all cameras a memorable image in front of the Pacific. As mentioned several time during the last days the Tour had to be redesigned after the horrible forest fires down highway one towards Big Sur.

A magical step back in time! This was always the slogan of the Goodwood Revival Meeting in September recreating an atmosphere of the past both on and off the track, but never was the time as precise as this year: 1966.
Half a century ago the final curtain fell on the high speed circuit near Chichester that showcased many international races over two decades linked with all the great names of this era like Sir Stirling Moss who won the very first race in 1948 and ended his career after a horrible crash in 1962.

Tony Adamowicz, 1941-2016

Ironically, just as we have been talking about early Trans-Am, I just heard from Ron Grable via Rick Mandelson that Tony passed. He and Bob Tullius won the first Trans-Am in the Group 44 Dodge Dart, and Tony A-Z had a remarkable career. The Can-Am, Trans-Am, F5000, and IMSA racer from New York had been suffering from Grade 4 Glioblastoma – brain cancer – that was diagnosed last year.

Museo Lamborghini 2016

The Museo Lamborghini is situated to the right of the main entrance of the factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese, which is a historic small town in the countryside, approximately mid way between Bologna and Modena. A bonus of its location right on the factory premises is that one will see cars being taken out on test, and maybe even spot the odd prototype. The factory is on the main SP 255, Via Modena, on the outskirts of the town, but within walking distance of the historic centre, and is still the site on which Ferruccio Lamborghini established the original factory in 1963.
