Concorso Italiano Brings Italy to Monterey Week
In a brilliant move, Concorso Italiano moved from Fridays to this past Saturday, August 16th, relieving a multi-year conflict with The Quail. In addition, Concorso Italiano moved back to its old haunt at the (newly refurbished) Black Horse Golf Course in Monterey Bay, California, high on a hill overlooking the bay.
This event grew again this year and showcased more than 800 – 1000 Italian cars, of course, but also showcased other elements of Italian style such as fashion, food, music and art. It was a celebration of all things Italian, and that meant particularly Italian automobiles. On display were new and old Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Fiat, Italdesign-Giugiaro, Lamborghini, Lancia, Maserati, Pagani, Pininfarina and Zagato, among others.
Ferraris were a huge part of this, of course, with over 350 examples lining several fairways, most brought through the efforts of the Pacific Region of the Ferrari Club of America. There was also an additional area for now “classic” Ferraris and at least fifty were present, adding to the importance that is Concorso.
More information and a list of the classic Ferrari entrants will be in Cavallino 203.
