On offer was a Saturday, Aug. 20, luncheon at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca trackside with vintage racer and Ford CEO, Jim Farley, who has entered both a a ’66 Cobra and ’78 Lola T-298 sports racer in the Reunion.

In addition, the prize includes two VIP passes , VIP parking, Driver’s Lounge access for two, and hot laps in the right seat with a pro driver.

“This is a wonderful outcome and it’ll be a great afternoon for you, Nico2015!” said Martin Lauber, LSRF director, inviting him—and all Rolex Reunion drivers, car owners, crew and spectators—to stop by the Foundation booth in Garages 5-6 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

Foundation board members will be on hand all week in a garage space shared with RACER and VintageMotorsport staffers who will be handing out magazines and (until supplies run out) limited edition posters by illustrator Paul Laguette.
