Monterey Car Week is just around the corner!

It’s that wonderful time of year again!

Monterey Car Week officially starts this week on Friday, as the Pre-Reunion at Laguna Seca starts up for the drivers who need some practice before the big weekend! There’s a HUGE amount of events coming up over the week too. The Mecum Auctions in Monterey, The Concorso Italiano, Exotics on Cannery Row, and Pebble Beach are all happening next week, and I have no idea how I’m going to go to them all! Of course, I’ll be going to the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion; I haven’t missed one since I came to the Bay Area!

This year, we’ll all be celebrating the racing history of Nissan (or Datsun depending on how old the cars are!), and some of the cars from the various racing periods the Japanese car maker participated. The Nissan ZX-Turbo GTP car will be at the track again as one of the showcase cars, as well as the ex-Paul Newman Datsun 280ZX Turbo and the legendary Nissan 300ZX Turbo driven by Steve Millen. And of course, who can forget the Brock Racing Engineering Datsun 510? Pete Brock will also be present at the Reunion, so I’ll see if I can get a photo!

Stay tuned!
