The entry list for all of the events in this year's Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion totaled 15 single-spaced pages long. That's explains how the field for this past weekend's Trans-Am race contained 41 cars, which is a larger field than ever competed in a real Trans-Am race.

The hero car in the photo above is a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport driven by Bruce Canepa, who won the Group 5A event for 1963-1966 GT Cars over 2500cc. Also on track throughout the day were pre-war racers like a 1932 MG NE and other two-up English entries, the original Morgan 3 Wheeler, sky blue single-seat French competitors like a 1934 Bugatti Type 59, and the high-driving red devils from Alfa Romeo and Maserati. Post-war treats include a BMW M1, Ferrari 250 GTO SWB, and bulbous, Speed Racer-looking Can-Am monsters.

      OK, so be honest readers. Where would you rather be? On a green carpet in a dark blue blazer talking to some lady with a face full of Botox to standing next to some guy in flipflops and a straw hat outside turn 5 watching a Grand Sport go by? Stingrays with side pipes. What else to you need in life?

      I was there on Saturday. It was like being in car heaven. The Grand Sport driven by Canepa was a thrill to watch. I recommend seeing this event at least once in your lifetime if you get a chance. i am lucky and live within a couple hours of the track. If you love cars you will love this event!
