F1 At Rolex Monterey Motorsports ReunionEnlarge Photo
This bit of news should prove music to the ears of fans who find the sound of Formula One's current V-6 turbo engines disappointing.
In what's sure to make for a glorious soundtrack, over two dozen machines from F1's storied history will assemble to lap Leguna Seca for the annual Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion.
The Ferrari driven by Niki Lauda and the McLaren piloted by James Hunt during their legendary 1976 championship fight—viscerally rendered in Ron Howard's Rush—will be on hand, along with examples raced by fellow luminaries Mario Andretti and Emerson Fittipaldi.
Only cars from the 1967 to 1984 seasons will be eligible to participate, and all will sport period correct liveries, including the names of their famous drivers. Just standing still, these cars provide spectacular testament to a golden era of racing--albeit also a ferociously dangerous one. So getting to see them on track should prove breathtaking.
The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is scheduled for August 13 through 16, the weekend of the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Head to our dedicated hub for more concours coverage.
