Talking Monterey Car Week 2012

Next week is arguably the World's Largest Car Week of the year.

Anyone from around here going?

If you have never gone and call yourself a "Car Guy" you owe it to yourself to go at least once in your life.
I try to go every year, a small group of enthusiast will caravan and take back roads all of the way up and down with a ton of spirited driving.

Driving Events:
  • Pre-Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion, 8.10-8.12. It's a cheaper way to see many of the same cars running. www.mazdaraceway.com
  • The Quail Rally,8.13-8.15. www.quaillodgeevents.com
  • Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance, 8.16. The cars roll into Carmel and park on the main street at lunch time, check them out for free. www.pebblebeachconcours.net
  • Pacific Grove Concours Auto Rally, 8.17. Check out the cars before the rally, free. www.pgautorally.org
  • Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, 8.17-8.19. Cobras roll out on the track in force like never before. www.mazdaraceway.com

Concours:

I'm watching Street Signs (CNBC) right now and they just had a segment that this car show will have the rarests/most expensive cars on earth. It must be a big deal to have coverage on Street Signs.

There is also a "rally" through the winding hills of Carmel Valley tomorrow. Several M cars, classics and exotics. Last year the highlights were a GT2, Lamborghini, GTR, X6M, ect.

I have to put my race wheels on for this kind of fun! And I am a Monterey local so have hookups for Laguna Seca tix. Usually I also have hotel hookups but they are all sold out now.

I'm planning to go to this next year and i have some questions.

Are most of the events free? I was looking at their website and it looks like tickets are $200? How much would you have to spend if you wanted to go to most/all of the better events? Thanks
