Those who have attended the grand Concorso Italiano in Monterey, California, during classic car week every August know that a sea of vintage and contemporary Ferrari sports cars is pretty standard fare.

But next year, it’s official: Ferrari is the featured marque for the August 15, 2015, meet of Italian splendor. The celebration of everything cavallino was dedicated because the Ferrari Club of America, Pacific Region’s International Meet will be held in Monterey for the first time in 11 years.

That pretty much guarantees an enormous display of beautiful Ferraris of every type will roll onto the grass at the Bayonet Black Horse Golf Course, where Concorso returned for its annual show this year. There will be special judging in a variety of classes, with unique crystal trophies for the winning Ferraris.

Concorso Italiano is one of the key events that happen during the second week of August in Monterey, considered to be the greatest classic car week of the year with a plethora of collector-car auctions, a wide number of car shows and concours events, and vintage racing competition, topped off by the grand finale, the monumental Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
