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.

The Club hosted the only scheduled public event of Car Week in 2020 by organizing a socially-distanced rally through the beautiful Monterey County back country.

We are working on the assumption that county health regulations will permit a traditional event this year and are planning our Concours Auto Rally for Friday August 13th in downtown Pacific Grove.  Application forms and other information will be posted soon.

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.
