the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. It is an international
gathering of rarely seen race cars that spans decades of racing
history by returning them to the race track to compete as they
once did. Entering its 38th year of vintage racing, the event is
a cornerstone with the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours
d’Elegance of the famed Monterey Classic Car Week that annually
attracts thousands to the picturesque Monterey peninsula for
events, auctions and a sundry of activities.
The field for this year’s Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is
taking shape as 533 historic race cars have been initially
accepted for the August 16-18 event. The Governing Committee has
the option of accepting an additional 17 cars to complete the
grid for the annual race at Mazda Raceway Laquna Seca.
“What a joyous moment it is to get the notification that my car
and I have been accepted to the event,” said Pen Pendelton of Los
Angeles, Calif., who will be driving a 1961 Alsbury Special. “It
is really an honor to be a part of something so special.”

commissioned a series of five limited-edition t-shirt designs.
Each shirt will bear the resemblance of one of the groundbreaking
stylings that for years have pleased automobile enthusiasts.
The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, August 16-18, will
