with special guests in attendance
LOS ANGELES, CA – August 8, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance® and AUTOMOBILE announced today that Michelin will present a livestream of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 21 at 2 p.m. PST. TEN: The Enthusiast Network returns for the second year in a row as the Official Media Partner for the Concours and will broadcast the awards ceremony for free on Motor Trend OnDemand and on the Automobile magazine playlist within MOTOR TREND’s YouTube channel.
On Concours Sunday over 200 of the most beautiful cars ever produced are neatly arranged on the 18th fairway of the fabled Pebble Beach Golf Links. From its inception in 1950, this Concours has grown into a truly international event, with the finest cars brought from all points of the globe to compete for Best of Show, the most sought after prize in the automotive world.
“The Concours may seem genteel, but the competition can be fierce,” said Concours Chairman Sandra Button. “We showcase the most beautiful, the most technologically advanced and the most storied cars on the planet—and our judges are charged with determining the absolute best among them. The livestream allows us to share this competition, and all of these great cars, with the widest possible audience.”
TEN’s International Bureau Chief Angus MacKenzie, American motorsports announcer Bob Varsha, and British race car driver and veteran broadcaster Alain de Cadenet, along with the editors of AUTOMOBILE and MOTOR TREND will serve as hosts for the livestream.
The livestream will include a preshow segment prior to the coveted awards, showcasing some of the most-prized collector cars. With the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance being one of the top-ranking collector car competitions in the world, high-profile special guests and celebrities will be making appearances throughout the broadcast to give commentary, insights, and expertise around the cars and event.
“We are thrilled at the opportunity to again bring this highly anticipated event to auto enthusiasts everywhere, from the comfort of their own homes,” says TEN CEO Scott Dickey. “Our audiences will be able to get right in on the action—in real time—and see these beautiful, historic cars with expert commentary as it happens.”
Alongside the competition among these historic automobiles, the Concours d’Elegance also showcases some of the world’s most unique and innovative new cars and concepts, which will also be featured on the livestream of the event.
