The Brits have Goodwood, France has the Le Mans Classic – now, it’s America’s turn. This is classic car racing, California-style. Get ready for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion with Zak Brown and the historics racing team at United Autosports.
Today, the 2022 edition of Monterey Car Week officially begins and this year, Zak Brown – United Autosports co-owner and McLaren CEO – will be racing two classic cars from his personal collection, a 1981 Porsche 935 and a 1989 Jaguar XJR10.
The Porsche won both the Daytona 24 Hours and the Sebring 12 Hours in the same year (1982), while the Jaguar topped the podium at IMSA GT Championship races across the US in the late 80s and early 90s, from Portland to Miami.
When they’re not on the track, these motors are cared for by the dedicated historics department at United Autosports, a championship-winning motorsport racing team based in Yorkshire who count the iconic 24 Hours of Le Mans amongst their accolades.
The 2022 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion will be held at the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca between Wednesday 17th and Saturday 20th August.
“It’s awesome to be returning to Monterey – it’s such a prestigious event on the classic car calendar, and in my home state too. This will be our eighth time racing at the Reunion and I can’t wait to get back out on track with the United Autosports team.”
“This is United Autosports’ eighth visit to California for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. It is such an important event, best summed up as simply ‘car week’! It has everything and for me is one of the most enjoyable events we do. It’s great to go back there, this time competing with two very iconic race cars in the Jaguar XJR10 and the Porsche 935.”
