MEET, DRIVE, TOUR, LUNCH AT MAR'SEL Restaurant – TERRANEA resort

The 2015 Tour D'Elegance designed to enable owners of "Special Autos" to enjoy the event with their beautiful automobiles. 

  • We are taking into consideration that there is a Concours competition on Sunday morning. So our Saturday driving event will be a Morning Repast-Drive-Luncheon event to give those Concours entrants joining us plenty of time to have some relaxing fun and get their autos prepped for judging.
  • We are preparing a route that is kind to older autos and low slung exotics—paved roads throughout. This year's event will be a tour vs. a timed rallye to make it a leisurely Saturday morning drive that showcases the beauties of the Palos Verdes and points of interest on the Peninsula.

Start: peninsula shopping center, Rolling Hills Estates

Finish: Terranea Resort, Rancho Palos Verdes

We'll Drive...

Limited to just 50 autos and their owners (or any 2 persons), the Tour will be led by our Grand Marshal, Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe. Palos Verdes is very scenic peninsula surrounded on three sides by the Pacific Ocean. The ideal place for a morning drive along tree lined roads and the rugged bluffs rising from Pacific surf. A route map will be supplied, so no one gets lost, and each driver can determine their own pace. And what to do after a beautiful drive...?
