While Sunday’s Concours d’Elegance anchors Monterey Car Week, Thursday’s Tour d’Elegance kicked the festivities into high gear. It began 22 years ago as a way for organizers to prove that the competition at Pebble Beach didn’t just consist of pristine trailer queens that never touched the pavement. Over 175 historic automobiles and Pebble Beach competitors took part in the drive.
The scenic trip around the Monterey Peninsula starts and ends at the Pebble Beach Equestrian Center, winding up the hills toward Tehama Golf Club, down to Carmel Valley Road and then straight south to Big Sur and back again.
