Monterey Car Week through the eyes of MAcarbon

MAcarbon had an extremely busy, but good Monterey Car Week this year. We had booths at 5 events this year and attended a few others. We started the “week” off by attending the Pre-Reunion races at Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca. This is an awesome event and it’s very low key. There aren’t any crowds, the cars are amazing and it’s only $25. If you don’t want to pay you can watch the races from the “Cork Screw” for free.

The next event was ‘Concours on the Avenue’ in Carmel-by-the-Sea. This is a free concours event on the main drag of Carmel and most importantly…it’s free. There is always a very eclectic group of cars here and it is a must see.

Friday was the ‘Werks Reunion’ Porsche Club of America show and we had a tent displaying our carbon parts. This show is a must for all you Porschephiles, and the coral is probably more impressive than the show itself.

A couple of us left ‘Werks Reunion’ and headed over to Monterey for the inaugural ‘Exotics on Canary Row’. This was the first year for this show, but you would never know it by the amount of people and cars in attendance. We had our booth set up overlooking the picturesque Monterey Bay, and we brought along two of our customer’s cars (Ferrari 360 Spider and Audi R8 V10 Coupe). Next to us was one of 3 or 4 McLaren P1’s. Also in attendance were a few Porsche 918’s, a couple Ferrari F50’s, a Pagani Huayra, a few Ferrari La Ferrari’s and a Mercedes CLK GTR…just to name a few. This is sure to become one of the more popular events during ‘Monterey Car Week’ in the years to come.

On Saturday evening we had our parts on display at the ‘Serata Italiana’, held by our friends at the Lamborghini Club America. This was our 6th year sponsoring this event and it’s always a blast. Our table of parts was in set up in a beautiful court yard full of stunning Lamborghini’s including the prototype ‘Asterion’ hybrid and the new Aventador SV Roadster.

When most of the events in Monterey were winding down, the Ferrari Club of America national meet was just getting started. On Sunday evening we had a booth at the Hyatt in Carmel for the national meet and had a great time talking to our old and new customers.
Monday was the Ferrari Club Concours, where we had a tent displaying our products. This was a really nice event with a great mix of Ferraris new and old.

Monterey Car Week

August is right around the corner and we sure have a busy schedule ahead of us. Monterey Car week is one of our most exciting and hectic times of the year for us. We get to get out of the office to look at some wonderful cars and mingle with the car community. This year, we will be attending four events as a vendor (even though some of the team will attend more than just those events).

We start off on Friday, August 14th, with the Werks Reunion hosted by the Porsche Club of America. This event will be held at the Rancho Canada Golf Club from 7am to 4pm. Immediately following this event, we will be moving to Cannery Row to participate in Exotics on Cannery Row. That event will be held from 4pm to 8pm. Sunday the 16th and Monday the 17th, we will be attending the Mercato di Ferrari at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and at the Concours d-Elegance at the Nicklaus Club hosted by the Ferrari Club of America.

Some of the events at Monterey Car Week are free of charge, so if you are in the area, come say hello and also check out the wide variety of events going on.
