For motorsports fans, being close to the action sometimes is not close enough. But for fans attending the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, the all-new “Rev Limiter Zone” provides enthusiasts with unprecedented access to the race track – just feet away from Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca’s high-speed start/finish straight.

A limited number of “Rev Limiter Zone” passes are now available for fans with General Admission tickets. The upgraded passes are $25 and are valid for the ticketed days from August 13-15.

“See, smell and feel the cars such as Jacky Ickx’s Ferrari 312PB F1 car racing past just inches away,” said Gill Campbell, CEO/general manager of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. “Where better to experience these museum pieces being driven as they were intended to, on a race track.”

The “Rev Limiter Zone” is one of a number of new areas being created to enhance the overall guest and participant experience at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. “We want our spectators to enjoy the race experience, learn about the cars and their drivers and provide them with a sense of discovery,” commented Barry Toepke, VP of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. “The ‘Rev Limiter Zone’ is another step in that direction.”

The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is honoring one of the true legends of motorsports- Dan Gurney – the Cars He Built, the Cars He Drove. The event will feature a display of Gurney Eagle Racing Cars: Formula 1, Indy cars, IMSA GTP prototypes, Can-Am and Trans-Am machines. Gurney will share some of his favorite stories with the fans through public interview and autograph sessions on Saturday, August 14.

More than 400 historic racing cars will compete in 14 groups at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. This year’s featured races are Formula 1, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year; Trans-Am; and for the first time ever, Stock Cars (with drum brakes) that competed between 1959 and 1975. Additionally, there will be a dedicated grid of Bugatti race cars in the Bugatti Grand Prix, with entries coming from as far away as Australia, France, Germany and Switzerland.

Formerly known as the Monterey Historic Automobile Races®, the event is now produced exclusively by SCRAMP (Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula), a not-for-profit 501(C)4 corporation established in 1957. A professional staff is supported by thousands of community volunteers and a volunteer board of directors who are the backbone of every event.
