Monterey Historics @ Laguna Seca... Pics Galore!!!**DEATH TO 56K**
So I was at the Monterey Historics at Laguna Seca in Monterey, California this past weekend. There was some awesome racing going on.
They divide the cars into categories depending on which series and time period they raced in. The cars ranged from 1918 to 1970's. They had some exhibition runs by various cars as well.
This year's featured manufacturer was Chaparral. If you are unaware of their history in racing... they were the first to really benefit from aerodynamic structures and the first to really experiment with downforce producing wings.
They produced one car that had a wings front and rear which would increase in pitch when entering a turn, increasing the downforce on the front and rear of the chassis.
They also engineered a car with two snow-mobile engines in the rear which would suck the car to the track increasing downforce and cornering speed.
Both of these cars were banned from racing after just one race due to the immense performance gap they created between the other cars in the class.
Aside from the hundreds of race cars at the event, there were even more street cars that were absolutely gorgeous. There was a BMW corral which housed over a hundred M3's from different eras and 15+ M5's, a Ferrari corral with probably 30+ Ferraris, a Porsche corral, Corvette, Lotus, Cobra, and Lambo corral.
Enough talk.... on to the pictures:

WHAT, i can not believe you saw that, didnt they only build like 14 or something
100 I believe.
they built 100... 75 road cars and 25 race cars. They didn't run it unfortunately... I would have loved to hear the roar of that magnificent v12.
oh, i was severly mistaken... fine, are there like 14 in the USA then?
oh yes, and that V12, dont forget who made it
gah you finally made it to one!! told you it was a freakin blast eh? the Chaparral has always been one of my fav historic racers ;)
Well, Komodo have to ready for the expensive maintenance .I heard a routine service for this car is £25 000?.This car only can be owned by a very super rich millionaire.
huh? I have been going up to Laguna Seca since I was like 5.... this is the first historic race I have been to, but I have seen the CHAMP cars race numerous times (back when they were still Indy cars) and I have seen the IMSA series a few times. mmmm IMSA is so bad ass :D
