What makes it more disappointing is that the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance was to celebrate its 70th edition this year. This year's event was to be a milestone and a few special showcases and announcements were expected.

Thoughts About The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Cancelled This Year

We think that we were really lucky to have had the 2020 Delhi Auto Expo happen this year. Considering all the mayhem broke out starting March, all auto shows scheduled for after February have been either cancelled or postponed. It is rather upsetting that something as beautiful as the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance has been canceled this year. And no matter what one tries, the 70th Edition will always be a victim of the Covid-19 virus.
