Zone 7 Concours Series Update

Monterey Bay Region held its annual concours on July 17th and was the most successful and well-attended event in Monterey Bay Region history, according to Concours Chair, Dave Aliotti. There were a total of 30 judged cars with an additional 25 or more Porsches parked in the car corral and more than 142 Porsche enthusiasts in attendance. The venue at Carmel Valley Regional Park was a perfect setting to show off Porsches from past to present. With temperatures in the mid-70s and clear skies, the large oaks and green lawn provided a wonderful venue for the event. Lunch was provided and included several salads, baked beans, barbecue chicken, and a tender barbecue brisket of beef. The next concours in the Zone 7 series will be held at Porsche Redwood City and hosted by the Golden Gate Region on August 7th. This event is NOT open to the public. You can register at the Zone 7 website at zone7.pca.org
