Held the weekend prior to the much larger Monterey Historics, the Pre-Historics has traditionally been closed to the public, allowing “in the know” spectators to enjoy a relaxed paddock environment, while drivers welcomed the opportunity to ease into the track without thousands scrutinizing every downshift.
The cat is out of the bag in 2010, as Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca said that the Pre-Reunion – new name – will now be open to spectators when it take place August 7- 8, 2010. (Click for name change info).
“I am pleased that we are able to invite the fans to the Pre-Reunion,” explained Gill Campbell, CEO/general manager for Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. “They have been asking us to make the Pre-Reunion a spectator event and it will be a great way to kick-off the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion week.”
Ticket-holders for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion will be admitted to the Pre-Reunion for $15 per day, if they show their ticket at the gate. For fans who want to come to the Pre-Reunion without a ticket for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, the ticket price will be $50 per day. Tickets for the Pre-Reunion will only be available for purchase at the gate and it includes complimentary parking.
“Our fans have been asking us to increase the vintage racing experience which they have been enjoying for almost four decades here at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca,” said Barry Toepke, vice president of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. “Opening the paddock for the Pre-Reunion and giving the fans access to the world’s finest pre- and post-war race cars is just one more example of enhancing the spectator’s enjoyment.”
