While the 2012 races will feature the Shelby Cobra in celebration of its 50th anniversary, a host of other classes will also be the focus of the historic races. New race groups for 2012 include 1974-1990 Stock Cars with disc brakes and Formula Atlantic from 1974-1980.
Owners and drivers of historically-significant race and sports cars may now submit their applications for the 2012 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. Approximately 550 cars will be accepted and each entry will be scrutinized for its historical significance and provenance, race history, authenticity and period correctness. Modifications that improve performance over its original specifications are not allowed.
