2008 Monterey Historic Automobile Races – 1

In August 2008, Laguna Seca Raceway lit up with the sights, sounds and smell of classic race cars being driven the way they were meant to. Real mechanics, real race car drivers and real (often very expensive) cars racing in all their glory.

The 2008 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion (formerly known as the Monterey Historics) was all about motorsport history at the iconic Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. It is biggest event at Monterey Classic Car Week and the only event of the week where these priceless cars actually go racing.

Cars are invited based on the car’s authenticity, race provenance and period correctness and the 2008 lineup was full of the Supercar team’s favorite motorsports icons.

The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is not a professional event, and has no awards or prizes for finishing position.
