    Due to a long planned family reunion next weekend I just had the opportunity to attend one day of the Pre Reunion meet on Saturday which meant driving the 200 miles in 3 hours and becoming immersed in the activities at Laguna Seca. I was a little weary by the time I got home that night. The advantages for me is that it is uncrowded and one can park close to the track and the price is about 1/3 of the main weekend.
    Always a welcome sight are the hills around Laguna Seca and no fog !

    Then park close to the track between turns Two and Three and watch a genuine 1960 Maserati T 61 or a 1955 Jaguar D-Type flash by.

    Australians Paul and Christine Freestone were at Laguna Seca with their two Holdens. An FX and an FJ. Both looked outstanding.
    The 1948 Holden 215/FX # 25 entered in the Group 1B 1947-1955 Sports Racing and GT Cars.

    This 1965 Ferrari 250 LM # 526 looked magnificent.
    It was from Miles Collier Collection at the Revs Institute at Naples, Florida.
    Could it possibly be the ex Andrew Buchanan car ?

    Although it cost $ 40.00 for the parking and programme on the Saturday, not everything was a bargain that day.
    For example :

    Some Formula One JPS Lotus shots.
    The 1982 Lotus 91/5 # 12 driven by English driver Greg Thornton who also drove F5000 at Taupo in January.
    We had a bit of a chat about that event. Here he gives the thumbs up as he returns from a practice session. I always liked the John Player Special paintwork.

    Ken H Corvette #48 a Greenwood and #88 look a bit strange - huge guards and narrow wheels - !! Love them though.
    I see Hotwheels has come out with a #76 Greenwood wide bodied car - must be my next purchase as have them in 1;43 so a 1;72/76 will be good..

    As I could not go on the main weekend at Laguna Seca, my friend John Adams has kindly shared some of his excellent photos from around the track and mi ne are more from the pit and paddock areas. Thanks John for sharing with us on TRS.
    Ex F1 driver Mika Hakkinen was the guest driver in the 1970 McLaren Can Am M 8 D # 48 that had originally been driven by Dan Gurney after Bruce died.
