More than 250 vintage racing cars took to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on Aug. 11-12 for what is called the Monterey Motorsports Pre-Reunion. The event was formerly known as the Monterey Pre-Historics, and it serves as a lead-in to the Monterey Motorsports Reunion staged during the Pebble Beach weekend on the Monterey Peninsula.

A large percentage of the cars participating in the Pre-Reunion will also be on the track for the larger event–more than 500 cars--this coming weekend. The Pre-Reunion gives the drivers a chance to get reacquainted, or in many instances, acquainted with the challenging 11-turn, 2.238-mile race circuit.

Here is a selection of photos from the various races.

Monterey car week is packed with car shows, vintage racing and car auctions. Autoweek will be there providing streaming photo galleries and live coverage of the Pebble Beach Concours, historic racing at Laguna Seca, the Monterey car auctions and plenty more. Go to Autoweek’s Pebble Beach homepage for complete coverage and live updates.
