The Monterey Pre-Reunion 2017 serves as the kick-off to the week of everything automotive that is the Monterey Classic Car Week. Staged August 11-13 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Salinas, California, a great selection of more than 300 historic race cars participated in this year’s event.
Whether shrouded in the notorious marine layer or bathed in Californian sunshine, Laguna Seca is one of the most challenging circuits. Featuring the most famous corner in American motor sport, The Corkscrew, the track requires ultimate performance from both man and machine with abrupt hairpins, blind crests and steep elevation changes. Accordingly, the Pre-Reunion afforded enthusiasts a great way to preview and enjoy the vintage car racing action, while allowing the drivers time to get familiar with the 11-turn, 2.238-mile road course and sort out their race cars for the much larger Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion.
In addition to Dennis Gray’s gallery, enjoy the following fantastic images captured by Victor Varela throughout the Pre-Reunion weekend.
