Just in time for th
e 50th anniversary of the E-Type and 60th anniversary of the C-Type's LeMans
win, Jaguar will be the featured marquee at the 2011 Rolex Monterey Motorsports
Reunion this August.
Formerly known as the Monterey Historics
, this is the third time that Jaguar will be the featured marque at the event, having previously headlined in 1976 and 1992. If you're not familiar with the Histori…uh…Motorsports Reunion, a brief explainer
is in order. Imagine all the coolest race cars
throughout racing history. I'm talking vintage Jaguars of course, but Porsches
…you name it. Now, put them all on a track, a good track, like the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
. Throw in some equally historic race car drivers, and you have a weekend that anybody who calls themselves an enthusiast absolutely must attend at least once.
If you've already been, then this is all old hat. If you haven't, this might be a good year to start. Expect to see significant Jaguar race cars of every stripe, along with plenty of beautifully restored non-race cars on the streets during the weekend. C-Types? D-Types? You bet they'll be there.
