The annual August Monterey Classic Car Week, which centers around the festivities at Pebble Beach, is made up of many elements, and one of the most fun for performance car enthusiasts is the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, being held this year August 19-21. The celebrations of the Jaguar E-type’s golden anniversary will spill on to the race track, as Jaguar will be the event’s featured marque, and their most beloved sports car graces the event poster.
Created by official Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca artist Bill Patterson, this event poster has personal resonance for Bill: “Having fallen in love with racing and fast cars in the ’60s, the E-type represented the perfect blend of design, technology, performance and sex appeal. It still looks fantastic today, 50 years after it was first produced. And to have been able to see that magnificent super-light E-type blasting through the sunrise at Le Mans would have been spectacular. Painting it is the closest I’ll ever get.”
In addition to the poster, there will be a Jaguar heritage display in the central paddock, where guests will be able to interact with Jaguar representatives and see the full lineage of Jaguar’s race cars.
