Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif., 19 August, 2016
On the third to last day of the Monterey Car Week the annual Motorsport
Gathering was held in the Quail Lodge in Carmel valley. In contrast to the
free Concours on the Avenue on Tuesday the Motorsport Gathering is one of
the most exclusive events of the week with a very hefty entrance fee for the
visitors. Despite the high prize the green in front of the lodge was very good
visited and although the gathering was enlarged into the area over the road it
seemed to be more people than ever.
After two hours of media preview in the morning that was used by most of
the owners to clean and prepare their car for the show the crowd came in to
enjoy a day with great cars, good food and wine and a social meeting. The
Peninsula Hotel group provided specialties in four different tents
representing their hotels in New York, Paris, Beijing and California.
