Legends of the Autobahn® 2014
Date: Fri, 08/15/2014 - 9:00am
Location: | Monterey - California
I would like to invite my SLK family to join me where we can display our cars in the "Coral" of this fun and prestigious car show! Now is the time to begin planning a California Meet during a week where literally EVERYTHING is built around the "Finest Driving Machines" in the world!
On Friday, August 15, Legends of the Autobahn® 2014, presented by Michelin, will feature the finest examples of Mercedes-Benz’s magnificent vehicles. Co-hosted by MBCA, BMW Car Club of America, and Audi Club North America, this one-day MBCA national special event puts the spotlight on distinctive German marques. We're excited to announce that Michelin USA will be the presenting sponsor this year. We're pleased to also announce that Keith martin, editor and publisher of Sports Car Market, will be emcee.
Keeping the 5th annual Legends of the Autobahn fresh, there are two more exciting new changes. First, the event will be held at a new venue, the Nicklaus Club—Monterey (formerly Pasadera Country Club), the only Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course on the Monterey Peninsula. This club provides stunning 360-degree views of the mountains and canyons, and a larger field to showcase our favorite cars.
Also new this year, for the first time, all three German car clubs will celebrate a unified theme—Motorsport. Specifically for MBCA, we will join Mercedes-Benz Classic’s 2014 theme of “120 Years of Motorsport.” This anniversary stretches back to the first car race in history; to victories at Grand Prix, Targa Florio, and Le Mans; Silver Arrows, Gull Wing, and AMG victories; present-day DTM and Formula One races; and fin tail and SLC rally championships.
If you’re thinking of bringing your Mercedes-Benz to Legends of the Autobahn, perhaps this quote from MercedesHeritage.com will convince you: “Legends is certainly no longer ‘the best kept secret’ of the Monterey week” and “has the gravitas of an established Monterey event.” In addition to mingling among precision German cars, there will be food and beverage tents, displays, club and vendor booths, and more.
Register your Mercedes-Benz of any model and age in a judged Concours class or non-judged Corral
A $75 registration fee will apply for entries in the judged Concours classes for 1994 and older vehicles. For this year only, there is an additional special concours class for Mercedes-Benz motorsport vehicles of all types and ages. A $40 registration fee will apply for entries in the “for display-only” Corral (Mercedes of any age).
Buffet breakfast, buffet lunch, VIP lunch, and event polo shirts are optional. This discounted “early bird” registration deadline is August 1, and all registration closes on August 8. You must be a member of MBCA (Mercedes Benz Club of America) to register but joining the MBCA is both affordable and informative and will entitle you to many other Mercedes Benz meets and discounts at Mercedes Benz dealerships nation wide.
