Big moves are planned for the Legends of the Autobhan, as the all-German marque Concours held during Monterey Car Week announced adjustments to its location and more for 2014.
One change was announced in January, as the Porsche Club of America said it was breaking away from Legends to create the Werks Reunion that will solely focus on the cars of Porsche. That leaves Legends with support from the BMW Car Club of America, the Mercedes-Benz Club of America and the Audi Club of North America.
With the Porsche Werks Reunion being held at the Rancho Canada Golf Club, the 2014 edition of Legends of the Autobahn 2014 will leave its traditional location for the Nicklaus Club-Monterey in Monterey, California. Organizers said the new venue will provide the event the much-needed room to expand. In addition to an expanded display area, the Nicklaus Club-Monterey, just off Route 68 west near Laguna Seca, offers extended parking and other facilities that should make it an attractive venue.
New for 2014, Legends will offer an open class for non-BMW/Mercedes/Audi owners to display their German-made cars. There will be corral and judged categories for the three hosting German-marque car clubs, as well as the new open class. Membership in one of the three clubs is required to display a BMW, Mercedes-Benz or Audi.
In past years, marque clubs have displayed special cars, or selected a group of cars around a special theme. The 2014 theme is “Motorsports,” so expect a selection of race cars on display.
