14 Run Groups Announced for 2017
Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion


Celebrating Two Diamond Jubilees
 
MONTEREY, Calif., Nov. 29, 2016 — The 14 historic race car run groups are set for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, August 17-20, 2017 as owners, drivers and enthusiasts now begin focusing their sights on applying for the limited 550-grid field that will be accepted to compete.
 
Returning to the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion for the first time since 2013 are the remarkable Formula Juniors that ran between 1958 and 1963. Celebrating its Diamond Jubilee international tour at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, there will be two groups to accommodate the large numbers of cars expected to enter.
 
The entry request process continues through January 31, 2017 and is conducted exclusively online at www.MazdaRaceway.com. Last year, more than 1,000 submissions were received with the owners hoping to have their cars be one of the 550 accepted that raced before a record crowd of 70,525.
 
Each car accepted will be based on its authenticity, race provenance and the historical accuracy of its mechanical preparation and livery. This strict code of authenticity is a distinguishing hallmark of the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion.
 
“Another Diamond Jubilee that is near and dear to everyone in Monterey and the motorsports world is that of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, which opened in November 1957. We are planning to celebrate this iconic facility by remembering key Moments in Time,” said Gill Campbell, CEO and general manager of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. “Stay tuned for even greater surprises, as we roll out additional announcements in the coming weeks.”
