Monterey Historics 2018- Trackside

Monterey Car Week 2018 did not disappoint. Every year it gets bigger and better, but that also makes it much tougher to get to your destinations on time....  and also turns the parking anywhere into chaos. If you're even remotely interested in cars, you should make the trek to Monterey Car Week at least once in your life.

I'll start with photos from the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. This four day race at Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca (previously known as Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca) showcases iconic race cars from all eras of motorsports. This is one of my favorite events of the week, as you see racecars that you never thought you'd see again. From classic F1 cars to pre-war cars, IMSA GT Challenge cars, and Can-Am vehicles, there's something for everyone to enjoy. 


With all that said, let's get on with some photos!


Since Mazda isn't sponsoring the track anymore, there are new pace cars. Didn't see this coming! The Lexus GS-F pace cars were out in force and rubbing through corners. They're a bit too quiet.



 Hearing the four rotor Mazda RX-792P screaming at full tilt was awesome. It sounded glorious!



 The beautiful Wynn's Hotchkis Racing Porsche 962C. I love seeing it hit the track! 



 This Chevrolet Camaro was raced in '88 and '89 in the Trans Am series as well as a few IMSA GTO races.



 The BF Goodrich Porsche 962, another one of the many 962C's fielding the track. 



The sound of the 5 cylinder Audi 200 Quattro Trans-Am is unmistakable. It makes such an awesome sound you NEED to hear in person!  



This Nissan 240SX was racing? Why yes it was! It looked really out of place and was running its own race while competing with the Porsche 962's, 4 rotor Mazda's, Trans-Am race cars. I have one of these as well, so I was so surprised to see it at the track running with the giants. It probably also helps that the featured marque of Monterey Motorsport reunion 2018 was Nissan

There's plenty more content coming, so stay tuned!
