If you are a fan of vintage car racing, the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is an event that you should miss. This event is one of the main events of the Monterey Classic Car Week, and it will be held from the 17th to the 19th of August, 2012 at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California. It offers a rare opportunity for you to see some of the finest vintage race cars competing in real racing conditions.

More than 550 cars from around the world will be taking part in this year’s Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, and each entry has been scrutinized for its authenticity, historical significance, race history, and period correctness. These cars date as far back as the 1910s, and they will be competing under 17 different categories, ranging from Pre-1940 Sports and Touring Cars to 1974-1990 Stock Cars with Disc Brakes. The Shelby Cobra has been chosen as this year’s featured marquee, in honor of its 50th anniversary. One thing that makes this motorsports event special is that it allows spectators to view participating cars at the paddocks.
