Pebble Beach, CA – August, 2014 — TV Pro Gear was hired by Mind Over Eye and Infinity Automobiles to shoot the 2014 Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach, California. The sold-out event was attended by over ten- thousand visitors and seen by thousands more online thanks to TV Pro Gear’s ultra high quality and ultra reliable Flypak™.
The 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance showcased 216 cars and motorcycles, 35 of which came from outside of the United States. The event also raised $1,677,445 for charity, bringing total charitable donations from the Concours to more than $19 million over time.
This year, tickets were $550 a piece—if you were lucky enough to “win” the right to buy one in the February lottery, which sold out of the 4,000 available in 90 minutes. Another 1,000 were distributed among the 30 sponsors, who use the event to wine and dine their best customers.
$422.5 million in collector cars were sold at the weekend event in Pebble Beach.
2014 marks another record Monterey weekend and yet another dizzying benchmark for the collector-car market, which has been steadily and rapidly escalating without pause for the last few years and in particular the last eight months. Sales across the six auction houses that sold vehicles during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance last weekend totaled $422.5 million, a 27% increase over last year’s sales, which in turn had been a 14% increase over 2012 sales.
