Robb Report’s 2017 Car of the Year competition is underway in California’s Napa Valley. The weather has been less than cooperative, with frequent rain showers, though periodic moments of sunshine have cast light on the area’s scenic vineyards and mountains surrounding the valley. Nonetheless, the first driving session on Saturday went off without a hitch and the first group of judges enjoyed running the 13 contending cars through their paces, and today’s weather is looking clearer for the second driving session, with more sun forecast for the next week. Here are some of the social media highlights from the event so far.
