Monterey Historics, 2000

The 27th annual Monterey Historic Auto Race at Laguna Seca August 18-20, 2000. Thomas Dyall, my wife Ashas grand nephew, visiting from the island of Reunion in the south Indian Ocean, and I went to the races for a couple of hours on Sunday the 20th. There were no early 900 series cars that we saw. Perhaps there were some earlier in the week. There were many 356, and at least 3 904 and 3 RS60, but no 550s that we saw.

The great part of going to this event is the paddock area is open to all ticket holders. You have a chance to see all the cars up close and even to talk to some of the participants.

911 Series Porsches are still in production so there are no 911s or 912s to be found.
