The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering announced that the 2020 edition of the world-class motoring event will be suspended in response to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
The Peninsula Hotels Signature Events and Quail Lodge & Golf Club have been closely monitoring the global spread of the virus and strictly adhering to the advice of City, County, State, and Federal government authorities and health officials daily. According to organizers, “We are following all recommended guidelines for preventing the spread of the virus and its impact on our community as the safety and security of our guests, entrants, partners, volunteers, and employees remain our highest priority. Therefore, after careful consideration we have made the difficult decision to suspend The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering that was scheduled to take place during Monterey Car Week on Friday, August 14, 2020, as well as The Quail Rally, our intimate multi-day motoring experience that was scheduled for Monday, August 10 through Wednesday, August 12, 2020.”
“The COVID-19 virus is currently affecting many regions around the world. We sympathize with the families and patients who have been affected by this virus and our thoughts are with those who have lost their loved ones,” said Kai Lermen, General Manager of Quail Lodge & Golf Club. “Now is a time to stay home and stay safe. The Quail will return in 2021 with all the grandeur, elegance, and excitement for which the event is renowned for. At that time, we will truly have much to honor and celebrate in the motoring world.”
As a long term and loyal partner of The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering and The Peninsula Hotels, Bonhams is very much aligned with this decision and will also postpone the 23rd Quail Lodge Auction originally scheduled for August 13 and 14, 2020. They will hold an alternate auction in California around this time for which details will be communicated by Bonhams directly in the near future.
