Report from Monterey!
Updated: September 24, 2018
Another of the VRCBC’s intrepid band of active racing photo-journalists has returned from one of the world’s most prestigious Vintage motorsports events. Ivan Lessner took his well-known 1958 Austin Healey 100-6 BN6 down to Monterey California for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, held at WeatherTech Raceway – Laguna Seca from August 15th to 18th.
The official entry list (here) is a fabulous wish list for any vintage racing enthusiast. Ivan said he had a great time and that going down the track’s (in)famous ‘Cork Screw’ should be on every racer’s bucket list.
Update: Here are two videos taken at the event now posted on You Tube. You can see Ivan’s Big Healey at about the 1 minute 30 second mark in this 360 degree ‘Paddock Walk’ (here). And his entire race (Group 1B) is shown in this video (here) starting at the 41 minute mark. Great stuff!
