MONTEREY, Calif. — Historic Sportscar Racing has been named the new sanctioning body of the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and Monterey Pre-Reunion at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
In the new multi-year partnership, HSR will provide expertise in vetting entries for authenticity, competitor and participant registration and full technical scrutineering for both the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and Monterey Pre-Reunion.
Established in the mid-1970s, HSR is currently operated by David Hinton, who acquired majority ownership of the organization in 2012 in partnership with the late George Tuma.
Hinton has served as HSR President ever since, and under his leadership the organization has seen one of the biggest periods of growth in the more than 40-year history of HSR.
“It is a true honor for HSR to be chosen as the new sanctioning body for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and Monterey Pre-Reunion,” said Hinton, who is also a regular participant in both events. “The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion has always been one of the most prestigious events on the worldwide motorsport calendar, and HSR looks forward to continuing the very high standards of race cars and driving we have all come to expect at this event.”
“Our intent is to continue evolving the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion to new levels of excitement by continuing to attract and present the very finest historic and authentic race cars that owners want to drive and fans want to see,” explained John Narigi, president and general manager of WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. “In partnership with HSR, we will continue this journey.”
