It's the 50th anniversary of the Cobra, and Ford has arranged the biggest gathering of original and historically important Cobras ever, to take place at the Monterey Motorsports Reunion. The event will start on August 17 and run until August 19 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca where 45 authentic series CSX 2000 and 3000 that were hand-picked for the dedicated Shelby Cobra race. A pool over nearly 60 entries were examined before narrowing the field to the maximum number safely allowed in one group.
Cobras will be arriving from the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Canada, and all across the U.S. to participate in the special occasion. In addition, more than 200 Shelby Cobras will be on display at the Cobra Corral with special areas for CSX 2000/3000 cars and Shelby American continuation cars.
With the sad passing of Carroll Shelby this year, the Motorsports Reunion will also serve to pay respect and honor the great man in the most appropriate fashion - with an all Cobra race.
