GREENVILLE, S.C. (March 18, 2014) – The BMW Car Club of America, the Mercedes Club of America, and the Audi Club of North America—the world’s preeminent German-marque car clubs—are pleased to announce the new location of the annual Legends Of The Autobahn concours d’elegance.
On Friday, August 15, the largest club event on the Monterey peninsula will take place at the prestigious Nicklaus Club-Monterey in Monterey, California, during the famed Pebble Beach Concours week. The new venue will provide the growing event the much-needed room to expand—and it’s so close to Laguna Seca that you can hear the historic cars warming up! READ MORE >>
August 15: the fifth annual Legends Of The Autobahn concours d’elegance and show—a celebration of German automotive engineering.
An intimate event by Monterey standards, Legends has been called “the best-kept secret on the peninsula” by several automotive writers. Featuring three prominent German enthusiast marques, the concours is hosted by the BMW Car Club of America, the Mercedes-Benz Club of America, and the Audi Club of North America, and membership in one of these clubs is required to enter a car in the concours or display field. However, non-member guests are also welcome to stroll the grounds and admire these magnificent machines!
Legends Of The Autobahn includes “club corral” parking for the three marques, and separate judging areas for each club. Participants may register either for the club corrals or concours judging. There may also be a separate parking area available for non-participants.
In past years, marque clubs have displayed special cars, or selected a group of cars around a special theme. At the Legends concours, you may encounter rare models, from historic Audi B Group rally cars to the BMW Z4 Zagato Roadster that debuted here in 2012. You’ll find everything from factory-prepared specials to beautiful private cars lovingly buffed by their enthusiast owners.
Additionally, for 2014 we have added an Open Class that will allow non BMW, Mercedes-Benz and/or Audi German marque car owners the opportunity to register their cars as a welcomed participant. Entrants in the Open Class may enter the event’s Corral area or be included in the Open Class for judging. Cars will be judged by an independent team of qualified judges and judged with full concours criteria. Please click on the ‘Other German Marques” link on the registration page.
A special luncheon and event shirts will be available for purchase. Participants are encouraged to place orders for both in advance.
Whether you plan to park your car in a club corral or submit it for concours judging, please register early, as space is limited!
Legends of the Autobahn is free for spectators. However, If you would like to display your car, enter the concours, or purchase meal tickets you will need to register for the event. Early online registration closes on Sunday, July 27.
See you in August!
