The main event and the awards will be streamed online.
The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is the premier motoring even in the US, if not the world. The few that might compare are the Goodwood Festival of Speed, maybe the Concours d'Elegance of America in Metro Detroit, and we'll have to add the Woodward Dream Cruise to that list, if only for its home field Motor City advantage.
This year's Monterey car week (held on the Monterey Peninsula in northern California) will be broadcast live for the first time with hosts Tommy Kendall and Justin Bell from Torque Media Group. Bell and Kendall currently host the IMSA broadcasts as well as The Torque Show, a streaming program you can find on Facebook and elsewhere. A few manufacturers are skipping the show this year, but we know that both Bentley and Aston Martin have plans to be there, as does Lamborghini and McLaren. Aston says it will have one global reveal and two other cars, likely the recently-revealed Valhalla.
The hosts will kick off the week with broadcasts from the Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance, one of the earliest of many car week events, on August 12. And they'll be live on the 18th fairway at Pebble Beach Golf Course for the main show on Sunday, August 15. Coverage starts at noon Pacific time and goes through the Best of Show Award at 5 p.m.
"This is an exciting year for the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, with over 40 past Best of Show winners and all of our overall Road Race winners reuniting for our 70th celebration-not to mention a host of special features ranging from early electrics and Pininfarina coachwork, to Porsche 917s and Lamborghini Countach," said Pebble Beach Concours Chairman Sandra Button.
"So, we can't wait to share this event with enthusiasts around the globe. And we think Justin Bell and the Torque Media team are just the team to do that; they are the best choice to produce our live stream. Their knowledge and experience bring an added level of expertise and entertainment to this broadcast."
This year's Pebble Beach show will be the 70th installment, as the 2020 show was cancelled due to Covid. On the show you can expect guests ranging from racing drivers to fans to automotive executives.
"We are committed to making this the best year ever for the Concours, streamed live from the heart of the action, with amazing guests and coverage of the incredible cars that will be inspiring and delighting us on the fairway," said Bell. "The past year has been rough on everyone; we want to entertain and share this magical day with as many people as possible."
