We are going to cover all of the automotive nirvana that is Monterey Car Week, starting with the Monterey Pre-Historics, held at famous Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. For now, check out the great vintage racing machines. We’ll have a short article real soon, so stay tuned to the place that’s All About Speed.


Mazda North America went vintage racing in a big way, with no less than four of the company’s rotary engine powered road burners taking to the famous track with the nasty corkscrew turns at the top of the course. Team Mazda will be back for the Rolex Motorsports Reunion. Of course, Redline Review will also be back for all the action.


The vintage racing that takes place at the Pre-Historics and at the Motorsports Reunion the following weekend includes automobiles from the very beginnings of horseless carriages, like these two 19 teens Nationals


How would you like to vintage race a Ford GT40 Mk1B? Heck, we’d settle for just driving one around on the street.
