ROLEX MONTEREY MOTORSPORTS REUNION FAN ACTIVITIES
The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, truly a week-long happening up and down the Monterey Peninsula, to host a “Celebration” event on Friday, August 6 to kick-off Motorsports Reunion Week.
The Celebration event will showcase vintage racecars scheduled to race during the Pre-Reunion August 7 and 8 and the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion August 13 through the 15 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. In addition to the car show element Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will be on-site providing racing and local attraction information.
The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is a celebration of motorsports history that reunites authentic race cars with a world-class track. This is where automotive history comes alive with such marques as the remarkable pre-war Bugattis, Alfa Romeos, and Talbot-Lagos to the more powerful Ferraris, Corvettes, Cobras and Porsches racing through the corners and down the famed corkscrew. The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion enters a new dawn of historic racing by honoring one of the true legends of motorsports- Dan Gurney- the Cars He Built, the Cars He Drove.
