Vintage Racing Cars at The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion
2013 Laguna Seca Historics
1957 Maserati 450S
The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is a rare opportunity for vintage racing fans to see classic race cars compete against each other on one of the most celebrated race tracks in America. Hosted at Laguna Seca, over 500 cars take to the sprawling circuit's challenging corners - including the corkscrew - showing off everything from open-wheel Formula cars from the turn of the century all the way up to early-90s high tech hardware. Each of the cars that attend the Motorsports Reunion is a unique piece of history in motion, being put through its paces in celebration of the original intent of its builders.
This 1957 Maserati 450S is owned by Rick Hall and competed in group 7A. Designed as an endurance racer, the car features a 4.5-liter V-8 engine. The 450S was a successful model, winning 31 races between 1956 and 1962, including the 12 Hours at Sebring.
