The 2016 Quail Motorsports Gathering will be held Friday, August 19th at the Quail Lodge Golf Club in Carmel, California during Monterey Classic Car Week.
The featured themes for the 2016 edition of the Quail include Rivalries of the Ages, the 100th Anniversary of BMW Celebrating Motorcars and Motorcycles, a Retrospective of Laguna Seca Raceway, the 50th Anniversary of the Lamborghini Miura, as well as the traditional classes such as Pre- and Post-War Sports and Racing, Supercars, Sports and Racing Motorcycles and Great Ferraris.
“The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering has become the highlight of Monterey Car Week and one of the most sensational events of the year. Thousands of motor vehicle enthusiasts, collectors, hobbyists and friends come to Monterey to share their love and admiration for exquisite automobiles in an intimate garden party setting, while also benefiting charitable organizations,” said The Quail’s co-founder, The Hon. Sir Michael Kadoorie, Chairman of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited.
