“Collectors often spend years preparing a car to compete here, and the cars themselves are iconic—they deserve to be seen and celebrated around the world,” said Concours Chairman Sandra Button. “We are pleased to be partnering with WeatherTech, Hagerty and Torque to make that happen. We are eager to share these cars, this exciting competition, and the place that is Pebble Beach.”
