Preparations are already underway for Monterey car week this coming August, and that includes naming the featured marques for each event. Mazda Raceway is kicking things off by declaring Jaguar a the star manufacturer for the Monterey Motorsports Reunion. Jaguar has a special history with Mazda Raceway and the vintage races, with Phil Hill winning the inaugural Pebble Beach Road Races in 1950 behind the wheel of a Jaguar XK120. This will be the third time Jaguar has been selected, having previously been featured in 1976 and 1992.
The historic races will highlight the Jaguar C-Type, which will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of its 24 Hours of Le Mans victory in 1951 - the first of seven for Jaguar. The races will also feature the 50th anniversary of the elegant Jaguar E-Type. For more details visit mazdaraceway.com or read the official details in the press release after the jump.
