Monterey Motorsports Reunion 2010 – Sunday Results and Photo Gallery

Sunday Notes: Formula One celebrates its 60th year of the modern era in 2010, and to celebrate Historic Grand Prix brought 34 authentic F1 cars to the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, including such manufacturers as Ferrari, Lotus, Brabham, McLaren, Shadow and Tyrrell.

Rob Walton's 1965 Cobra Daytona Coupe in turn 11.Herb Wetanson scored a double on Sunday, racking up wins in Group 2B, driving a 1951 Frasier Nash Le Mans, and in 4B with his Zagato-bodied Aston Martin DB4 GT.

Rob Walton won popular Group 7B driving his 1965 Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe, chassis number 2286. Dan Gurney and Jerry Grant piloted # 2286 at Le Mans in 1965, scoring a DNF with clutch failure at 15 hours after running as high as 3rd overall.

Not surprisingly, fastest time of the day and weekend went to a Formula One race car, as Charles Nearburg turned a blazing 1:22.72 with his 1981 Williams FW 07B. For reference, Nearburg’s time would have taken pole for the American Le Mans Series GT2 Class in 2009.

  1. Max Stockman says

    Beautiful shots Dennis, and great, thorough coverage SCD. Sorry to hear about Moss and Morton, but glad they are okay. Cars can be repaired, but…

    I would guess that Moss will be gone for good now, given the no-wreck rule or did the new regime get rid of that?

  2. Tom Claridge says

    Charlie Nearburg in the F1 Williams actually the fastest lap
    in 1:22.7 not Johanssen at 1:24.5. Thanks, Tom Claridge ((second in group 5B BTW))
