The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering

The Quail in 2005 Honors a new race theme, additional Cuisines of the World, rare Lamborghini Miuras, and will continue to keep the event’s successful intimacy.

WHAT: The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering:

A full-day event created for the passionate and discerning connoisseur. In its third year, The Quail will offer guests a tribute to the legendary Mexican race, La Carrera Panamericana. Enhancing this theme will be an exceptional selection of 125 pre and post-war sports and racing cars and an extraordinary display of vintage motorcycles. The Quail strives to keep its attractions unique by incorporating primarily craftsmanship and interactive exhibits. Returning to The Quail, The Bay Area Engine Modelers, exhibiting fully operational miniature engines, and the Extreme Gravity Racers. Equally attractive will be the exhibition of Automotive Fine Art Photography, an important sale from Bonhams & Butterfields Auction featuring jewelry, automobilia and rare vintage cars, and The Cuisines of the World with fine wines and delectable fare.

Several of the exclusive cars on display on the lawn of Quail Lodge in 2005 will include:

· 20 vintage cars that competed in La Carrera Panamerican, the legendary and particularly challenging race that took place from 1950 to 1954 on the Mexican portion of the newly built Panamerican Road that was to unite the Northern and Southern American continents.

· 15 of the most original and rarest Lamborghini Miura
· 10 Alfa Romeos, the marque car of this year’s Vintage Car Week
