Legends of the Autobahn™ Cancelled For 2020,
But Will Return For 2021 Monterey Car Week
Monterey, C.A. (April 15, 2020) – Audi Club North America, BMW Car Club of America, and Mercedes-Benz Club of America who collectively host the annual Legends Of The Autobahn™ event presented by Michelin, today, announced the cancellation of this year’s show scheduled for Friday, August 14, in Monterey, California. However, participants and fans of the all-German marque Concours d’Elegance will be pleased to hear the event will return to the Monterey Car Week schedule in 2021.
Audi Club North America, Mercedes Benz Club of America, BMW Car Club of America, and the Club at Pasadera have worked in close partnership for the last eleven years to bring together our members, their cars, the local community, and attendees of Monterey’s famed Historic Car week. The three clubs intend to do so for many more years to come, however we will only do so when it is safe for our guests and our members. While this decision was difficult to make, we believe it was the right one.
The show has run for ten consecutive years and become a must-see event on the Monterey Car Week schedule for all. Each year, the Concours d’Elegance draws over 400 registered cars and over 3,000 spectators that fill the fairways of The Club at Pasadera. In 2019, Legends Of The Autobahn™ was voted the number four car show in America by the USA Today 10 Best Readers’ Choice Poll.
Legends couldn’t have achieved such success and prominence without the support of many including our volunteers, members, attendees, fans, host venue, and sponsors. Although, this year’s event will not take place, we cannot go without specifically thanking our major sponsors who have shown incredible support including Michelin, XPEL, Hagerty, and Griot’s Garage. In addition, The Club at Pasadera, its membership, and the Pasadera community have been amazing hosts and we look forward to working with them again in 2021.
Plans are being made now for next year’s event and triumphant return to the Monterey peninsula. Further updates regarding the 2021 edition of Legends will be announced in late 2020 at www.legendsoftheautobahn.org.
