Monterey Car Week is finally underway!

Monterey Car Week kicked off with the 2019 edition of the Rolex Monterey Pre-Reunion!

Yours truly managed to snag press credentials once again this year, so of course, I went down to Laguna Seca to get some practice in before the main event! This year, Monterey Car Week will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the International Motor Sports Association. This means nearly all of the famous GTP, Group C, and even LMP race cars will be present at the track!

The Monterey Pre-Reunion was chock full of awesome race cars from the past, including the legendary Audi R8 Le Mans Race Car that dominated The American Le Mans Series from 2000 to 2004! Also, there were more than a few fire-breathing Group C and GTP race cars, including the Toyota-Eagle GTP Race Car!

The best part of all this? I get to see these cars again starting Thursday! I’ll be staying at the track with some friends, so it’s going to be racing from sunrise to sundown!

Check out my gallery from the Pre-Reunion!

MY PHOTOS ARE ON THE CORKSCREW NEWSLETTER!!!

Ever since I started volunteering my photography to SCRAMP and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, I always sent copies for their media team to use in their publications, as a sort of “thank you” for letting me work with them. It’s a pretty sweet deal, actually!

So, maybe I shouldn’t be that surprised when I get the latest Corkscrew newsletter and recognize some of the photos, but I’m hella surprised!

These look familiar!

The first two photos I shot at the Monterey Cars and Coffee event at Laguna Seca back in May 2018!

The next photo is from March of this year from the new Laguna Seca Cars and Coffee!

I’m still in shock! I mean, I actually accomplished something! I’m not some bum with a camera and wishful thinking!

I’ve been working really, really hard and questioning whether or not what I’m doing is right or if I should just pack my bags and go back to the East Coast. But after seeing this newsletter; I’m even more determined than ever!

See you at the track!

Getting ready for Monterey Car Week!

Monterey Car Week 2018

Monterey Car Week starts this weekend with the Monterey Pre-Reunion!

The Monterey Pre-Reunion is a sort of practice session that kicks off the start of the week. Racecar owners and their teams could get laps in and dial in their cars for the fastest lap times. It’s a great opportunity to get really close to the action since it’s not as crowded as the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. In fact, it’s very similar to the Spring Classic series at Laguna Seca.

Of course, I’ve been getting ready for Monterey Car Week by tidying up my Lightroom Library! Plus, I got my Media Credentials in the mail! I’ll be shooting behind the fences once again!

See you there!
