Monterey Car Week is the highlight of the year for serious automotive enthusiasts. It offers a marathon of car exhibitions, competitions, social events, forums, races and auctions. The car week that has become a tradition at and around Pebble Beach, California since 1950. This year, Monterey Car Week – with official and unofficial events taking place for longer than a single week – begins on Friday, August 9th. It ends with the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, August 18th.

Kicking Off Monterey

Over the past 20 years, Premier has had a strong presence at Monterey Car Week. For example, it has been a sponsor of several different events. This year is no exception. As usual, senior staff members will be in attendance during the entire week to assist clients with their financing needs. In addition, Premier will sponsor the special event: the Malibu to Monterey “Fuel Run” Rally on Wednesday, August 14th.

This sold out event is limited to 100 “hyper, exotic and supercars” and 200 participants. It kicks off on Wednesday, August 14th, and is the official start of the 2019 Monterey Car Week. On Wednesday is a day-long, 250-mile road rally from Malibu to Monterey. The Fuel Run’s welcome and starting point is at the historic intersection of the Pacific Coast Highway and Sunset Boulevard, at Gladstones Restaurant. Firstly, this location is where the sun meets the Pacific Ocean. In addition, it is where participants can register their vehicles, be served a breakfast, have their Fuel Run graphics installed. Lastly, they can meet the police escort that will lead them out to the rally.
