The Monterey Historics at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca are one of the premier historic events in North America, in fact it is this event that gave birth to the entire week of activities that has taken over the entire Monterey California area.
Due to many circumstances, time away from “home” has been a premium this year, so it was at a very late date that I realized I had a small window to make it to Laguna for the first time in a year. The last time was to celebrate 50 years of Cobra, this time was to celebrate 60 years of Corvette.
So it was a day trip to California, a 20 hour ordeal in order to be at the track for about 6 hours. Was it worth it? You be the judge…
I may not have seen everything to my satisfaction, but I think I got a pretty nice fix of the glory days of the sport, including a re-acquaintance with many cars I’d seen race in the years past.
