The Event: 2014
Dear friends and fans of the Del Mar Concours d'Elegance:
We are gearing up for the next edition of the Del Mar Concours d’ Elegance.
We will be launching our next show in the Spring of 2014. This very special event has been in the works for over two years.
When the concept was first explored, the title sponsor referred to it as “THE EVENT.” As more people came on board it was apparent that this really was going to be “The Event” so the name was perfect, said Tim Henry , the producer of “The Event.”
“Everyone was expecting us to have a Concours like last year, which would have been the safe thing to do. But we’re not resting on our laurels. We saw this latest transition as the perfect opportunity to start a new chapter for the Del Mar Concours. We’re building a new concept that we can’t wait to share with our community. Our goal is to raise the bar higher than ever before for this incredible Concours event. We were trying to launch in October of this year but knew we wouldn’t be ready,” said Henry.
“The Event” will feature an all-new cast and crew, and “an all-new” venue powered by a past and present generations of the piston-powered engine.
When asked by the press recently about “The Event”, Henry simply said “Close your eyes and envision yourself spending the day having a glass of wine with Amelia Earhart and Charles Lindberg, then strolling over to a have a conversation with Steve McQueen as he parks his Indian Chief motorcycle, while enjoying the finest cuisine from the most famous chefs on the planet. Watch as Clark Gable arrives in his Mercedes “Gull Wing” as dozens of Hot Air Balloons light the sky as they take off into the sunset……”
”The Event” has been confirmed for next Spring 2014…..Expect a full reveal on “The Event” soon, but until then, watch for a formal press release and stay tuned to this website.
