It's difficult to choose where to be on Friday during the Monterey Car Week. Various car shows vie for our attention, including the Quail Motorsports Gathering, Concorso Italiano and Legends of the Autobahn. Deciding where to spend our time on Saturday, however, is easy. Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is the place to be, with the Monterey Motorsports Reunion hosting hundreds of vintage race cars at the famous 2.24 mile racetrack.

Jaguar was this year's featured marque, highlighting the 50th anniversary of the E-Type. We generally think of the famous Jag as a beautiful road car, but it was a fierce competitor on track as well. An entire race category was dedicated to the E-Type, which made for an incredible sight.

Of course, not all of the race groups were Jaguars, and some of our favorite regulars were back at the track for another year. We always enjoy seeing the Shelby Mustangs and Cobras battle it out with the Corvettes, the IMSA racers, and of course the ever-competitive Trans-Am cars of the late 1960s and early 1970s. We only wish we could stay at the track all weekend to see every race.

Couldn't make it out to Laguna Seca for the Motorsports Reunion? No worries, we've got you covered. Just browse through our high-res photos in the gallery above.

      Was there Friday and Saturday. I looked for a Carolla, funny enough I figured if I met him he'd be a jerk. I think I saw him but wasn't sure. I never could find his car. Glad I didn't meet him. Ill just enjoy the podcasts. What a great weekend Monterey is!

        he was over at bruce canepa's super ultra mega luxury trailer right next to the paddock exit. honestly he wasnt that rude to me but it was just bad timing because it was 10 mins before his race so he didnt feel like talking. his race was actually great because he battled with these three alfa romeos and my friend and i watched from the middle of the rahal straight

      That light blue OTS on the left of the main pic is Rick Korn's from Woodinville, WA, which is probably the fastest E-type on the west coast. I've seen dominate its class many times. Too bad we don't have audio to go with the pictures as a field of big-bore XK's at full chat is likely the best rendition of Sir William's Sixth Symphony ever heard!
