The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is likened to a museum that springs to life each August on the Monterey Peninsula.

Think of three exotic car companies that have long filled the dreams, and walls, of little boys around the world. It’s not hard to imagine that those likely marques originate near one another in Italy.
It’s the year of tre in Monterey as Italian exotics – Lamborghini, Ferrari and Maserati – showcase their remarkable pedigrees at three separate events held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. And each one will assuredly bring smiles to visitors of all ages who are strolling through the race paddock or watching from hillsides and grandstands.
Monterey, Calif., is where I was born and raised. It’s probably one of the most beautiful places in the world and I feel lucky to call it home.
Over the years, I’ve found quite a few places in Monterey that I like to frequent that are definitely favorites in my book. And since Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is my home track, I can also give you an insider perspective of the racing circuit. I’d like to share a few of these with you and hope you enjoy them as well and maybe even run into you at one of my favorite spots.
