Two of the arguably most iconic Maserati race cars ever constructed served as the inspiration for this year’s Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion poster art that was revealed today: The Maserati Tipo 61 and 250F Grand Prix car. Maserati is the featured marque of the historic motorsport gathering which will commemorate its centennial.
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca official artist Bill Patterson elegantly combined the two cars into one collage, which was not an easy feat, but he was able to capture their essence of grace, motion and, of course, speed.
Returning to their familiar home where they ran unbridled in the ‘60s and early ‘70s, thundering Can-Am cars will be a popular group this year at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. Held August 14-17 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, the event is a collection of 550 authentic and period-correct race cars from nearly every decade of motorsports.
American race driver Derek Hill, son of World Champion Phil Hill, will strap himself behind the wheel of the lone surviving Maserati Tipo 151, of which only three were ever constructed, to race in the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion August 14-17 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
