Monterey Historic Races

I had the good fortune (armed with Press and Team Pass privileges) to attend the Practice Group runs and get close and personal with some of these spectacular vintage race cars.

The pictures are posted on the Rennlist Gallery web site

The first batch is from the Paddock and are mostly of what caught my camera fancy. The latter images are of the groups that I photographed from the starting gate (on Friday) as they lines-up for 'launch'

Practice Group 1B 1926-1952 Grand Prix Cars
Practice Group 2B 1947-1955 Sports Racing & GT Cars under 2000cc
Practice Group 3B 1957-1963 Formula Cars under (F-1, F-2, F-Jr.)

Practice Group 4B 1967-1983 Historic F-1 Cars (Historic Grand Prix)
Practice Group 5B 1956-1961 Sports Racing Race Cars under 2500cc

Did they run the Historic F1's on Friday? I was there on Saturday and didn't see them run. Some people told me they ran on Sunday but I was at Pebble Beach. By the way, that Lotus 49 is just perfect. If they hand those out upon entry to the pearly gates, I might have somethink to look forward to after old age.
