Historic F1 machinery set for Stateside reunion Classic and Performance Car

A long list of iconic Formula 1 cars are set to star at Laguna Seca.

30 historic F1 cars will descend on Laguna Seca for the annual Rolex Monterey Motorsport's reunion. 
Cars spanning 17 years of Formula 1 will fire into life in California on August 13-16, with cars from the 1964 world championship up until the 1987 season eligible to feature.
Two of the world famous cars that will be making an appearance at the event are the Ferrari driven by Niki Lauda and the McLaren piloted by James Hunt during their heart-stoppingly intense battle for the 1976 championship.  
All of the cars will bear the names of their famous drivers to go with their authentic livery. Alongside Hunt and Lauda, fans ofwill see many other cars such as those raced by Mario Andretti, Emerson Fittipaldi, and Ricardo Patrese will be in action, including the 1979 championship-winning ex-Alan Jones Williams FW07B.
The tradition of having a featured marque will also be continued this year with the Shelby GT350 Mustang being honoured in order to commemorate its 50th anniversary.
The European F1 cars are a rare sight in America with it being the first time that some of them have even been in the USA.
Other cars set to start include the Arrows 001, the first of Tom Walkinshaw’s team machinery, and an 1977 ex-Teddy Pilette BRM P207- the last F1 car to have ever been made by BRM.
