As it had for three days prior, an early morning marine layer gave way to brilliant sunshine for Sunday’s final rounds of racing at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, illuminating the “museum in motion” that has become a cornerstone of Monterey’s annual Classic Car Week.
An automobile museum that bursts to life is one way to describe the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. It is an international gathering of rarely seen race cars that span decades of racing history by returning them to the race track to compete as they once did.

The one-hour special goes in-depth into America’s premier historic car race held annually on the scenic Monterey peninsula.
