On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of corporate involvement in motorsports that continues today, Nissan has been named the featured marque of the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion to be held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca August 23-26.
“This is the first time an Asian automaker’s racing heritage has been celebrated at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and we are thrilled to welcome Nissan and its extensive racing history into the historic racing scene,” commented Gill Campbell, senior VP of Laguna Seca. “From the early Datsuns to more modern day Nissans, their achievements have earned the respect of racers and deserve to be recognized.”
The annual gathering features 550 historic and period-correct race cars from nearly every era competing on the 2.238-mile road course. Akin to a museum revving to life, the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion celebrates motorsport history for four full racing days for fans’ enjoyment. Supporting the on-track racing is a bustling paddock that is open to everyone, Q&A sessions with legends, special exhibition laps and a full marketplace of vendors exhibiting a wide range of automobilia and products. For motoring enthusiasts, there is no better place to be in the world than at the Monterey Classic Car Week.
