NEW LOGO FOR A NEW ERA
For the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion
Officials at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca unveiled a new logo for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion that reflects the pedigree, spirit and history of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca’s signature turn – The Corkscrew.
The tree in the logo is taken from a photo of the actual oak tree at The Corkscrew. It’s the exact oak tree that drivers’ drove under before the turn down The Corkscrew. The oak is still alive and well but was moved a few feet to the drivers’ left to accommodate the track modifications for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix.
The curbing in the logo represents The Corkscrew curbing. Both the oak tree and the curbing are the same landmarks that legends Jimmy Clark, Sir Jackie Stewart, Dan Gurney, Sir Stirling Moss, Phil Hill, Wayne Rainey and Kenny Roberts Sr. have used for racing at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is honoring one of the true legends of motorsports- Dan Gurney, the Cars he raced and the Cars he built, such as the famous Eagle race cars. Among the 19 race groups competing at the event will be a dedicated grid of 40 Bugatti race cars in the Bugatti Grand Prix, and featured races for Stock Cars with drum brakes, Trans-Am, and Formula 1 race cars that competed between 1966 and 1983.
