“Team Amelia” will again be part of the annual Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on August 13-16, 2015.
The historic car races at Laguna Seca are a large part of the annual festival and celebration of classic, historic, competition and collector cars known simply worldwide as “Monterey Car Week.”
Every August the Monterey Peninsula is taken over by fleets of rare, exotic and breathtaking cars. Amelia’s contribution this year will be the ex-Group 44/Bob Tullius/Paul Newman TR-6 that was one of the cars featured on the Laguna Seca race poster in 1974.
In 2014, “Team Amelia’s” Group 44 TR-6 won the SCRAMP (Sports Car Racing Assn. of the Monterey Peninsula) President’s Cup for “the car that has the most historical significance to Laguna Seca”.
“Please stop by our trailer in the Laguna paddock and say ‘hello’,” said Bill Warner, driver of the #44 TR-6 and founder and Chairman of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. “The weekend really is a reunion and we hope to see many old friends and, with luck, make a few new ones.”
