Sadly but unsurprisingly, the organization behind the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance has decided to cancel the 2020 event, which was originally scheduled for 16 August due to the ongoing threat of Covid-19.

“My heart goes out to all of the people who are involved in the Pebble Beach Concours and who are impacted by this decision,” said Concours chairman Sandra Button. “Many of our entrants have been working on a special car for years, and this was to be their moment.

“Some of our overseas entrants were nearing the point of putting their cars on boats and planes, and their own travel arrangements have long been made. The same is true for many of our international cadre of judges.”

Entries had already been selected and confirmed for the California-based event, which showcases some of the most beautiful and rare cars from around the world. What would have been the 70th edition will now take place on 15 August 2021, and retain the features that were planned for this year. This includes a display of past ‘Best of Show’ winners and special classes for Pininfarina coachwork, Porsche 917, Talbot-Lago Grand Sport, Miller racing, Iso, Early Electrics and the Carrera Panamericana.
