I live for the roar, pop, crackle, burble, and rumble of those racecar engines as they scream around Laguna Seca raceway. It wouldn’t be Monterey Car Week without the Historic races, otherwise known as the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion.
I’ve attended and watched the event since I was a little kid. Walking up and down the pits and looping my little fingers through the cold chain link track side fence. Now, I’m all grown up and I still get just a giddy. Being that I’m covering the event for my website, I’m afforded even better access than peering through chain link.
While the track is where action is, the pits also offer a unique look into what goes on in preparation of getting on track. This year I managed to cover a few corners during the morning session when it was actually foggy (quite unusual for Laguna Seca during that time of year), which created some interesting track images. I of course also ventured to Vendor Island where I scored some one-of-a-kind pieces of automotive history including a magazine signed by Phil Hill.
Take a look at the photo gallery below as well as a short video of some of the corners.
