For 2011 the legendary English sports car manufacturer, Jaguar, will be featured marque as the revered brand celebrates the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the E-Type, and the 60th anniversary of the C-Type’s first victory at the 24 Heures du Mans.

Another highlight will be the Ferrari GTO 250 race, which will see more than $100-million worth of race cars on the starting line.
Bud Moeller let us put a camera on his Barrichello F1 Clienti car while he was at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last week. This one is of Bud doing a shakedown lap after being rolled out. We wanted to show off just a tease and take you on a shakedown lap with our friend and regular Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion Participant Bud Moeller and his F2003 GA chassis #228 Formula 1 Clienti car which was originally driven by Rubens Barrichello. It was a rare privilege to ride along with Bud, who was having so much fun driving his newest F1 car.
