While vintage automobile racing trends as a mostly-gentleman’s sport, plenty of women have shaped its decades-old history, and several will keep the wheels in motion driving their own collectibles at this year’s Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. Scheduled for August 14-17 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, the annual event this year celebrates 100 years of Maserati and punctuates action on the track with 550 pre-selected historic and period-correct race cars competing in 15 race groups over the four-day gathering.
The monthly Twilight Cycling Ride, presented by Rabobank, at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will be an evening of fun, trial races, general lapping and followed by a delicious BBQ June 18 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. The evening is hosted by the Monterey Bay Racing Team, which was formed in 2005 by a handful of cyclists interested in increasing local participation of bicycle racing.
TRG-AMR (Aston Martin Racing) has announced that it will launch the first ever North American Aston Martin Festival over Labor Day weekend, August 30-31, 2014, at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
The 2014 Aston Martin Motorsports Festival will be open to all owners, racers, and enthusiasts alike, offering the opportunity to see road and race cars in close action while also enjoying live entertainment and a special gala dinner as part of the festivities.
The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is a cornerstone of Monterey Peninsula’s Classic Car Week. Only around 550 vehicles will be accepted, based on the car’s authenticity, race provenance and period correctness. Nearly every decade of motorsports history will be represented in what is described as a museum springing to life.
