The Rolex Motorsport Reunion at Laguna Seca is an event that makes it possible for enthusiasts to experience the best years of competitive motorsport. Imagine being trackside as James Hunt’s McLaren rips down the corkscrew. Or watching more than 30 Shelby GT350s fly around turn two, side by side, as the drivers barely manage to keep the rear from slipping out from under them.

Simply put, it’s pure sensory overload. When I arrived at the track on Thursday, I could hear the practice laps in the distance. Knowing what the weekend held in store, I was overtaken by an indescribable feeling of excitement. There’s nothing like the sight of pit crews working tirelessly to put together Formula 5000 cars, for instance. When you see all of the internal components of these cars, there is a newfound respect for the sport: It takes a village to piece these machines together and maintain them properly.
