Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion – Perspectives on Passion: From the Driver’s Seat

Owners of vintage and historic cars are passionate about their machines, and for those who wish to race them, the annual Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion holds the highest esteem in the U.S. when it comes to such endeavors. Organizers limit an enormous number of entry requests to 550 period-correct cars for the annual event, which is next scheduled for this August 13-16 and takes place at the 2.238-mile race course that is Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

This is the original championship-winning Gurney Eagle Formula 5000 driven by Tony Adamowicz in the 1969 SCCA FA- F5000/Continental Championship.

Entry Requests for Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion Exceed Previous Years
Record Gathering of Formula 5000 Cars Expected

Surpassing previous years’ flurry of entry requests before the deadline strikes, the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion’s Governing Committee today began the arduous task of reviewing each entry to reduce the total car count to a maximum of 550. The process is time-consuming, but ensures that each car is authentic and historically accurate when they arrive at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca August 13-16.


Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion to Celebrate 50th Anniversary of Shelby GT350 Mustang

The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion will celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the most recognizable road racing cars of the ‘60s – the Shelby GT350 Mustang – as the 2015 featured marque August 13-16, 2015 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

The Shelby GT350 Mustang came onto the scene just one year after the Ford Mustang debuted. Ford Motor Company, already having success with Carroll Shelby in the Cobra program, enlisted Shelby to make the new Mustang competitive. And together they did, winning three consecutive SCCA national championships in its maiden years.
