The Quail 2016… A Motorsports Gathering

The Quail VehicleVoiceThis is the second time I have attended The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering and it did not disappoint.  Held at The Quail Lodge and Golf Club in Carmel, California, the event drew 5,000 attendees.  Cars and motorsports are supposed to be the highlight of the event, but food, drink and people are even more interesting.  The attendees were enthusiasts, collectors, owners and motorsports personalities.  Some of the vehicles on display had their owners hovering nearby.  Other vehicles had their attendants close to make sure spectators did not touch them.   Some of the restorers had worked on the cars for years and were bringing them out in public for the first time since the restoration was complete.  Getting more popular all the time are “barn finds”.  These are vehicles that have not been restored to a level never even attained from the factory.  They have their fifty, sixty, seventy or eighty year patina intact.

There were over 250 vehicles to gaze at.  Most were luxury and sporting marques like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti, Rolls Royce, Bentley.  One of the highlights was the new Bugatti Chiron in a deep French blue with a highly chromed character line sweeping up the A-Pillar along the door and then down and back forward towards the front fender.  Very dramatic.  Framing the Chiron was a “sea” of Bugatti Veyrons in a rainbow of colors.

Bugatti Chiron VehicleVoiceBugatti Sea VehicleVoiceWhile The Quail is an event for individuals to showcase their vehicles, corporate displays seem to be on the upswing as well.  Bugatti showcased the Chiron.  Bentley showed off the Bentayga and the new Mulsanne.  Acura was there celebrating 30 years on the market.  BMW was celebrating its 100th Anniversary.  Cadillac was featuring its CTS-V.  Alfa Romeo featured the 4C and upcoming Guilia sedan.  Singer, the classic Porsche upfitter, had a small display and a large crowd.

Bolus VehicleVoiceMy favorite display was the Bowlus travel trailer hitched to a Bentley Bentayga.  This all-aluminum $219,000 travel trailer is reminiscent of an aluminum Airstream but is totally high tech.  The Bowlus folks say you can live off the grid for two weeks in their travel trailer and be totally comfortable.

The Quail is a signature event for Peninsula Hotels.  Six Peninsula hotels had a spectacular pavilion with gourmet food appropriate from their cities – Bangkok, Beijing, Chicago, Beverly Hills, Paris, and New York.  Most people probably couldn’t get through all six pavilions.  While all six of the Peninsula pavilions were outstanding, perhaps the best was Beijing with great food and music to set the ambiance for a truly luxurious experience.
