Nissan has confirmed that it will be the featured marque at the 2018 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. The event celebrating vintage racing machines takes place at Laguna Seca during the Monterey Historics car week, and remains one of the most prestigious automotive events in the world. This will be the first time a Japanese marque has been honored there.
If you’ve attended the event before you’ve seen that Datsuns and Nissans are plentiful in the paddocks. Zs have had the strongest representation, but over the years a Hakosuka Skyline, a Datsun 510, and a few ZXes have made appearances as well. It’s ben clear from climbing prices that Japanese classics are becoming more accepted in traditional car collector circles, and recognition of their racing provenance will only fuel the growth. The Rolex Monterey Motorsports reunion takes place August 23-26.
