Hagerty bolsters events portfolio | Insurance Business
Specialist auto insurer Hagerty has announced the acquisition of McCall’s Motorworks Revival. The revival is the latest addition to Hagerty’s events portfolio. Since 2019, Hagerty has also added the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance, the California Mille, the Concours d’Elegance of America and the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance to its roster of automotive events.
Gordon and Molly McCall founded Motorworks Revival in 1991 and will remain consultants to the Hagerty team. More than 3,000 people attended the event last week at the Monterey Jet Center in Monterey, Calif. The event featured nearly 60 partners from private aviation, culinary and luxury lifestyle brands.
“We have partnered with the Motorworks Revival for more than 20 years and appreciate how well they have executed what is generally known as a much anticipated kick-off event to Monterey Classic Car Week,” said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. “We are thrilled to include the brand in our expanding suite of automotive events and experiences as we continue to knit the enthusiast community together to protect the future of car culture.”

“Motorworks grew from a small gathering of friends getting ready for car week into a large car culture festival almost overnight,” said Gordon McCall. “However, the spirit has always remained the same – a passionate focus on the best cars, aircraft and culture all wrapped up in the allure of an intimate, strolling dinner party. Molly and I are thrilled to assist the Hagerty team as we continue to find innovative ways to delight our guests.”
Hagerty takes part in more than 2,500 car events each year.
