The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering 2014
Now in its 12th year, The Quail Lodge has done this event long enough to know what works and what doesn’t, and this year’s gathering was nothing short of spectacular! But just for a second, let’s put aside all the free flowing champagne, fresh oysters, bourbon tasting, overhead aerial plane acrobatics, racing legends, live music, iconic rock stars, television and sports celebrities, and what are you left with? Oh yeah, only the most stunningly beautiful and fascinating cars and motorcycles on the planet.
This year’s event took place on Friday, August 15, and featured: the 100th Anniversary of Maserati, Competition Mustangs, A Tribute to India, Rock and Roll legends, Pre and Post-War Sports and Racing, Super Cars, The Great Ferraris, and Sport and Racing Motorcycles.
Of course, we had our favorites, like the beautiful Porsches on display, including some amazing builds from Singer and the 918 Spyder prototype, the competition Mustangs with their taped up headlights, the BMW i8, the Lamborghini Huracan, the 1948 Jaguar Completely Coach Built for James Hetfield (yeah, the Metallica guy) and the long line of pristine red Ferraris adorning the green manicured sod near the lodge.
Best of Show went home with Tom and Gwen Price from California, and their 1938 Talbot-Lago T-150 C SS.
