Wheels of Italy 2013

We are pleased to announce our 10th consecutive year participating in and sponsoring the annual Wheels of Italy car show. This years event took place on Sunday, August 25th near Lake Calhoun and despite the heat, the turnout was great! Attendees got a dose of everything Italian on wheels, including cars, motorcycles and scooters. Thank you to everyone who came out and helped to make this event a success. Check out our video footage from the event and some of our photos below.

Following the success of the last season, the Maserati Trofeo MC will be back in 2013 on one of the most prestigious circuits around the world. The race is scheduled for this Sunday at the Sonoma raceway, a year-round motorsports complex that highlights some of the top racing series in the country.

The raceway is located 30 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and the facility covers 1,600 acres and more than 160 feet of elevation changes. The highest point on the track reaches 174 feet while the lowest point at turn 10 is just 14 feet. The physically challenging 12-turn 2.38-mile course provides a great setting for the IZOD IndyCar Series weekend, which will run through Sunday, August 25th. A double header will take place tomorrow with two races in the Touring Car class on Saturday including two Trofeo Maserati World Series races and the 60-minute Grand Touring and Grand Touring Sport main event on Sunday.

So far this season, an average of 24 Maserati Gran Turismo MC Trofeo’s have competed on circuits around Europe, but this weekend the action returns to the United States at Sonoma, a gateway to famous wine county. Make sure to tune in Saturday and Sunday for this exciting event!

4th Annual Wings of Hope Golf Classic

On Monday August 5th we brought a few or our Morrie’s Luxury Auto vehicles to the Hazeltine National Golf Club for the 4th Annual Wings of Hope Golf Classic.

Throughout the event, they collectively raised over $1,000,000 dollars for the United Healthcare Children’s Foundation from the lunch auction, dinner auction, silent auction and the money raised from the entry fee into the tournament.

Notable auction items included a glass of lemonade for more than $1,000 dollars and 4 different Morrie’s Luxury Auto vehicles being shown. A 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible in Bianco was stationed on Hole #4, (no one made the hole in one this time ), a black 2005 Ferrari f430, a silver 2013 Bentley Continental GTC Le Mans Edition as well as the brand new Champagne 2014 Maserati Quattroporte GT S.

Some of our clients came out in their own vehicles, including a 2008 silver/gray Ferrari f430, a blue 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible MC, and a black 2013 McLaren MP4-12C Spider.

Here at Morrie’s we are always looking for the oppertunity to give back and we were happy to be able to support the 4th Annual Wings of Hope Event again this year.
