Rolling hills echoed with the revs of historic race cars at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, a part of the iconic Monterey Car Week. Held at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, the event paid homage to America’s racing jewel, Corvette. Packed with 14 racing groups, the event thrilled 53,851 spectators who were treated to a Corvette Anniversary display featuring rare and unique models from the GM Heritage Museum. Among the jaw-droppers were the 2023 24 Hours of Le Mans-winning C8.R and the CERV I, II, and III advanced prototypes. As fans circled the Corvette SS prototype and snapped photos of Roger Penske’s 1966 Daytona and Sebring class-winning Corvette, Corvette racing legend Ron Fellows served as Grand Marshal. Fellows didn’t just wave the green flag; he also raced the 1987 Profab Corvette, proving his racing prowess in the 1981-1991 GTO/Trans Am class.
But the Corvette wasn’t the only star. The second annual Corkscrew Hillclimb event saw cars like the 1995 Porsche Gunther Werks Turbo make impressive runs. Additionally, Thomas Merrill set a new Hillclimb record for electric vehicles in the 2023 Drako GTE. Monterey Car Week and the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion have yet again proven that when it comes to the celebration of automotive history and racing culture, few events compare. This year, the spotlight was on Corvette, highlighting not just its past glories but also signaling exciting future events.
