Come join your fellow German Automotive Enthusiasts! Plan to be a part of the Legends of the Autobahn™ auto show and Audi Club West Coast Meet on August 14, 2015. The Golden Gate Chapter is organizing Audi’s participation at this year’s edition of a very popular event held annually during the Monterey Classic Car week. Expect to see and enjoy the over 700 cars that frequent this unique event. The cars in attendance come from far and wide and belong to members of the local and national chapters of the Audi, BMW, and Mercedes Benz car clubs.
The car show will be held at the beautiful NICKLAUS CLUB - MONTEREY, (formerly the Pasadera Golf Club) conveniently adjacent to the famed Laguna Seca Raceway and east of the Laguna Seca Golf Course. The Nicklaus Club is a fantastic facility. Audi owners will have the opportunity to join with the other German marques on the greens and fairways of this dramatic and beautiful park-like setting. We invite you to be a part of the Monterey Historic Classic Car Week by joining this remarkable assembly. Non-participant spectator admission is free, however, there is a small fee charged by the golf course for parking.
In addition, the sponsoring clubs wish to welcome the owners of other fine German marques to Legends of the Autobahn™. Any other German marque (i.e. not Audi, Mercedes, or BMW) can join us by registering here for the general Corral. However, if you have an older air-cooled Porsche and wish to enter in the Judged Car competition, we invite you to do so in Audi's "4-Rings Classic" class. If you are in this category, then continue here to register as a Judged car.
Audi owners have two ways to join us.
One: Park your car in the general Corral with all German cars on the golf course. There will be no designed Audi only Corral parking.
Two: Enter your car in one of the four "Judged Car" Audi specific classes and display your car on the greens adjacent to the Clubhouse.
We don’t want to limit your thinking by calling this event a "Concours" since most of our cars are driven daily. In any case, the Audi judges will be members of our club, so a fun, low-key event is assured. General car corral registration is $40. The Judged Car registration is $75. We will award Judged Car trophies three deep in the following classes*: Four Rings Classic, Sports, Audi Sedan, and Avant. Registration closes on August 7th. However, registration may close sooner if we reach the maximum number of cars allowed on the field. So, avoid disappointment and register early.
*In addition, we reserve the right to move cars into different classes if there are not enough qualified entries to fill a class. We will let you know if changes are necessary. Judged Car participants will be notified of the rules prior to the event.
Adding to your day's enjoyment, there will be food, beverages, and displayed auto regalia available in a festival-like atmosphere within a beautiful setting. All registered cars will receive one special SWAG bag, a special Audi gift. As in prior years, we are offering the special Legends of the Autobahn™ golf shirts in both men's and women's styles. They are available for pre-order at $40 for the small, medium, large, and extra-large sizes, and $45 for 2XL & 3XL sizes.
There are several meal options available during the event when purchased in advance. A breakfast buffet at $19.75. Breakfast will close at 9:30 a.m.to allow for lunch set up. There are two lunch options. Buffet lunch held outside, at $34.75 and the VIP lunch which will be held in the clubhouse, at $52.75. The meal menus are below. Participants can also bring a picnic lunch as meals purchases on the day of the event may be limited.
We are also looking for volunteers to help the Golden Gate chapter with this important event. Most volunteer work will be done at the beginning of the day so there will be adequate time for viewing. Volunteers will receive the buffet breakfast at no-charge, with our compliments, for their well-appreciated efforts. If you wish to volunteer, please indicate this when you register and remember not to purchase the breakfast.
We plan to have a number of interesting Audi models on display, both new and old. Audi of America has provided us in the past with significant cars for display and this year we expect they will do the same. We look forward to announcing their plans to display several new and special cars for us to see. Of course most of the cars at the show are our personal vehicles, ones that we all know and love. We are encouraging all area Audi owners to come and join us in the prideful display of their car(s), while enjoying the camaraderie of other Audi owners on the grass at this all day, family friendly car show and picnic-like event.

Other things to do while you're in the Monterey area:
In addition to the Legends of the Autobahn™ event, there are many things to see and do in the area during the Monterey Classic Car Week. For example, the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion historic car races will be held on August 15th and 16th at Laguna Seca. We encourage everyone to sample the large variety of auto related events all over the Monterey Peninsula. It is common to see rare cars that are publicized in magazines driving through the streets of Monterey or parked on Ocean Avenue in Carmel. People come from all over the world to participate and see and be seen at the plethora of local events. They come to take in the thick atmosphere of auto exotica that permeates the area streets. It all culminates at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday. We encourage all who wish to be a part of this extraordinary experience to get their various tickets and room reservations early. If you would like more information about the events during Monterey Classic Car week and Pebble Beach weekend visit the Pebble Beach Concours website at http://www.pebblebeachconcours.net . If you have questions about Legends of the Autobahn™, please contact Pat O’Neal at email@example.com or Andy Immel at firstname.lastname@example.org . We hope you will join us at Legends!
