About the Pacific Grove Rotary Concours Auto Rally

About the Pacific Grove Rotary Concours Auto Rally

With Cobra as the automotive marque, in 1995 Caroll Shelby came to town to help launch our first auto rally to raise funds for the Pacific Grove Youth Center. The Pacific Grove Rotary Concours Auto Rally is now established as one of the most popular free-to-spectator events of Car Week on the Monterey Peninsula and typically takes place on the Friday of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance weekend.

This annual event is the Club's most important fundraiser for local youth programs and community services. The traditional downtown concours show has been canceled due to the pandemic. As an alternative, the Club has designed a program that will abide by all state and local requirements for the protection of attendees.

A rally-only event is scheduled for Friday August 14th, 2020. Vehicles will stage at an out of town location and drivers will leave the site in groups of 10 cars to follow a prescribed route through a variety of scenic landscapes. There will be no organized communal gathering outside of the vehicles. When not in a car, attendees must wear masks and comply with all social distancing and other mandated requirements as of the date of the event.

More information and a registration form have been e-mailed to all prior attendees. New drivers and those who do not have a current email address on file can access the forms on the Registration & Event Schedule page at the link below. Participation is limited to the first 100 completed applications returned by U.S. Mail and received in Pacific Grove by Friday August 7th. IMPORTANT:  No applications will be accepted on the day of the rally.

We hope you will be able to join us this year.

Proceeds from the event support Rotary Club of Pacific Grove projects and local youth programs. Projects funded over the history of the event have included the Pacific Grove Youth Center and high school driver-training scholarships.
