“We are extremely excited to honor Porsche and its incredible racing heritage at the 36th Rolex Monterey Historics,” said Steve Earle, founder of the event and president of General Racing. “With great cars from the early Speedsters, and Spyders, to the 917’s and the Group C cars, this event will be an auto enthusiasts dream, and we look forward to seeing these vehicles on the track.”
