To have them return with additional support for the next three years is quite encouraging, and we’ll do our best to create a fun experience for them,” said Martin. Representatives from RM Sotheby’s will be participating in both tours and contributing to the “Conversations with Collectors” in the evenings – a highlight of each SCM Tour, where tour members speak openly and candidly about car collecting with experts.

Open to all high-performance Mercedes, the SCM 1000 AMG Invitational is the first known event to star AMG cars. It will be held in Bend, in the Oregon High Desert. The entrants will also visit Crater Lake and the Painted Hills. “It will be quite a sight to see 40 high-performance Mercedes in one place,” said Martin. “These are cars that deserve to be driven through the wide-open spaces of Oregon.”

The SCM 1000 Classic, “it’s a celebration of motoring. Participants will enjoy 1,000 miles of Oregon and Washington backroads. Our tours encourage camaraderie along with cultural and geographic immersion,” said Martin. There will also be a sternwheeler dinner cruise on the Columbia River.
