Since 1974, the Monterey Historics have showcased the passion for vintage racing cars and has risen to the top shelf on the international motorsports calendar. Held at the beautiful Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, this multi-day event showcases the cars and people of motor racing history from the beginning of the sport to the present day.
The 2009 Rolex Monterey Historics featured 450 of the finest vintage racing cars, including 150 of featured marque Porsche, all preserved for the continued enjoyment of present and future generations.
In honor of the event, General Racing, sponsor Rolex and photographer Stephan Cooper offer the following pictures that capture the mythical presence of the Historics. Many of the photos have been edited to express a slightly different feeling for the races – a more artistic and ‘historic’ look. We hope you enjoy them.
