RACER, Vintage Motorsport again partnering LSR Foundation at Rolex Monterey Reunion


The RACER and Vintage Motorsport magazine team will be out in force once again throughout the Aug. 17-20 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion long weekend.

CEO Paul Pfanner, VM’s D. Randy Riggs, VM and RACER’s Nick Lish, and several members of the advertising and marketing teams will be in Monterey, not only to cover the world-class vintage racing event but also to support the mission of the newly revitalized Laguna Seca Raceway Foundation (LSRF).

“With its focus on Le Mans 24 Hour history this year, celebrating the spectacular endurance racing sports cars and prototypes that rev up the enthusiasm of our staff, we’re especially excited about this year’s Rolex Reunion,” said Pfanner. “Graciously, Mazda will share one of its twin Lola T-616 Le Mans cars with us, parking it out in front of our booth throughout the weekend.

“Most importantly,” Pfanner added, “we are partnering once again with the LSRF, in full support of its fundraising mission that directs 100 percent of its tax-exempt revenue to maintenance and upgrades at this most historically and culturally important racetrack, WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.”

The Foundation’s hugely successful Laps for Laguna vintage race weekend in May was the forerunner of what it is hoped will be a spring motorsports event cornerstone for years to come. A featured attraction of that racing weekend were the lunchtime charity rides, a feature that will return in 2023.

Yet another portion of the Foundation’s fundraising efforts is the online charity auction offering the high bidder the chance to enjoy a trackside luncheon with vintage racer and Ford CEO Jim Farley.

Mazda’s T-616 appeared on the cover of Vintage Motorsport issue 2005/1  and its cars always draw a crowd: the Japanese automaker’s 1984 C2 class winner will be on display in the Le Mans Winners tent.

Recent issues of both RACER and Vintage Motorsport magazines and discount subscription coupons will be available throughout the weekend. And please stop by our garage area early in the week as we’ll be giving away posters designed by illustrator Paul Laguette as long as supplies last.
