Suit up, strap in and tune in for the premiere airing of the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion special at 8:30 a.m. PT on Saturday, Sept. 26 on FOX Sports 1. The one-hour program chronicles the people who race their extraordinary historic cars and provides a glimpse into Monterey’s world-famous Classic Car Week.

“The Fox Sports team has assembled a package that captures the full pageantry of the weekend, including the close racing and human interest stories that are unique to the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion,” explained Gill Campbell, CEO and general manager of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. “We greatly look forward to sharing the program with motorsport and automobile fans worldwide.”

A record 65,422 visitors enjoyed the sun-drenched meeting of 550 historic and period-correct cars racing in 17 different groups. The 50th anniversary of the Shelby GT350 as featured marque provided a focal point of memorable moments in time. Nearly every racing era competed. From elegantly designed pre-war racers to GT prototypes and howling Formula One cars, the gathering fulfilled every sensory experience a motorsport fan could imagine.

Next year’s Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, August 18-21, 2016, will turn its attention toward Germany and the ultimate driving machines of BMW, which will commemorate its 100th anniversary. BMW North America is deeply involved in planning and already dozens of European racers have expressed interest in participating.
