The Petersen Car Week will begin on August 12, 2020, to help provide a sense of community usually created by the Monterey Car Week, which has been cancelled for 2020.

The very first virtual Petersen Car Week now officially has sponsors and the car classes to be featured in the Petersen Concours d’Elegance. The concours will premiere on the museum’s YouTube channel on August 16, 2020, and will feature the following classes: American Classic Open & Closed, European Classic Open & Closed, Post-war Preservation, Ferrari Grand Touring, Post-war Sports, Movies and TV, Off-Road, Hot Rod and Shooting Brake.

The concours will take place on Sunday and will wrap up the Petersen Car Week. A week-long schedule chock-full of digital content produced by the museum will occupy the other days. Along with the featured concours, the final Sunday will include a live concept car showing.

A number of sponsors have also been added to elevate the appeal of Car Week, including Bonhams, Bring a Trailer, Michelin, McCall’s Motorworks Revival, Exotics on Broadway, Sononma Speed Festival, O’Gara Coach, Porsche Club of America and RM Sotheby’s.

“We’re thrilled to announce the featured classes for the 2020 Petersen Concours d’Elegance and the amazing list of sponsors to support the week-long virtual events,” said Petersen Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “Although we’d much rather be experiencing the vehicles in-person, we’re excited to see the submissions we receive from around the world in each of the concours classes.”

The museum will host events each day of the Petersen Car Week featuring user-submitted videos and content. Some other events will include live vehicle debuts, online auctions, exclusive interviews and car shows. All events will be debuted as premieres on the Petersen YouTube Channel for free, giving enthusiasts from all over the world a chance to experience the content during the Petersen Car Week.
