Fall 2015 303

Planning for the 2015 edition of

the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Re-

union probably began before the 2013

event ended. It was a tribute to the

Cobra; it had been fifty years since the

original Cobra was completed. Both

Ford and Shelby American pulled out

all the stops to make the event hard to

forget. Before the last Cobra left the

track some people were asking, what

about in two years, when it would be

the 50th anniversary of the GT350? It

was almost a no-brainer. Shelbys were

exciting cars with a large and enthu-

siastic following. The 2013 event had

a special, all-Cobra race where forty

snarling snakes shared the track’s

2.238-mile ribbon of asphalt. Did any-

one doubt it would be possible to at-

tract forty GT350s for an intramural

race? Did Shelby have a Texas accent?

We weren’t there, and we couldn’t

convince anyone who was to file a re-

port about the weekend. So we did the

next best thing: we dragooned a couple

of SAAC members who were all over

the Monterey Peninsula into sharing

some of the pictures they took with

us...and, hence, with you. Think of this

as a scrapbook of the Monterey week-

end. Thanks to Bob McClurg and Bill

Fulk for sharing their pixels.
