Welcome to the MBCA Legends of the Autobahn(r) 2015 presented by Michelin. The Mercedes-Benz Club of America invites you to be part of the exuberance of this very popular event. Co-hosted by MBCA, BMW Car Club of America, and Audi Club North America, this one-day MBCA national special event puts the spotlight on distinctive German metal--three of the finest marques in the world. We're excited that Michelin USA will once again be the presenting sponsor. We're also pleased to welcome back Keith Martin, editor and publisher of Sports Car Market, as emcee. Everyone raved about the new venue last year, so Legends returns to the prestigious Nicklaus Club in Monterey, California.
We're celebrating the 60th anniversary of the 190 SL this year with a special judged class for this model. All Mercedes-Benz models from 1995 and older are welcome in the other six judged Concours classes, and models of all ages are welcome in Corral. The three car clubs will have separate concours judging, but the corral area will combine all three marques. There will also be a "People's Choice" and other special awards.
Many activities and delights will keep you busy and engaged during the day. After mingling among the vehicles on the field, you can visit the special manufacturers’ displays, food and beverage tents, a biergarten, club and vendor booths, and more.
$75 registration fee will apply for entries in the Concours in one of seven judged classes for 1995 and older vehicles and the 190 SL. $40 registration fee will apply for entries in the "display-only" Corral (Mercedes of all ages and models). The buffet breakfast, buffet lunch, VIP lunch, and Legends of the Autobahn polo shirts are optional.
If you're thinking of bringing your Mercedes-Benz to Legends of the Autobahn, perhaps this quote from Car and Driver will convince you: "Legends is far more convivial than competitive. Everyone is there for the love of German metal and that exuberance courses through showgoers and those with cars on display alike." Register your car now, and spend a fun-filled day with other enthusiasts among beautiful cars!
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: For the first time this year, we are introducing the MBCA Silver Star Preservation Class. This special class is for members who want to show their well-preserved, largely original, and unrestored-since-new Mercedes-Benz on the Concours field, but not have it judged. It is intended for driver-quality cars that have withstood the ravages of time, climate, and daily driving. To enter this class, your car must be 25 or more years old, be in good working order, driven to this event under its own power, and be largely original (including engine and drivetrain). Partial refurbishments of various components are acceptable, but not complete restorations (those should register in a judged class 1-7). A full explanation of the Silver Star Preservation Class is on page 76 of the March-April 2015 issue of The Star magazine. An MBCA judge will evaluate the vehicle, and after it is certified, the owner will receive a special Silver Star Certificate in recognition of the preservation of originality and maintenance of functionality. $60 registration fee will apply for entries in the Silver Star Preservation Class.
