MONACO HISTORICS GRAND PRIX
Roar of Racing History on the Streets of Monte-Carlo

Vintage classis race cars at Monaco historics photoThe Monaco Historics Grand Prix, vintage car races through the streets of the fabled principality (Grand Prix de Historique de Monaco) recently featured in the "Iron Man 2" motion picture, are held every two years in the streets of Monte Carlo one week before the annual May running of the current F1 Grand Prix of Monaco, making for a marvelous display of 60 years of racing cars. Cars from historic eras in different classes careen around the modern Monaco circuit between the armco barriers. 2014 featured another running of the classic vintage race cars. A Lotus driven by Jim Clark, and Maserati driven by Alberto Ascari, Niki Lauda’s winning championship Ferrari, the three Tyrells of Jackie Stewart all on the same track over two days of carbureted fumes from throaty pipes of Cooper, March, Clay Regazzoni Ferrari and lotus at Monaco Historiques Grand Prix photoBrabham, BRM, front engine and rear racing by the years of competition. While the mtechnical precision of the modern Formula One car is an amazing thing, it is a testament to the love of racing to see drivers throwing these mostly privately owned, sometimes multi-million dollar one-of-a-kind museum pieces around the tight, narrow streets on the razor edge of control. Causing the admonition for a safe race from Grand Marshal, Formula One and and LeMans racing great Jackie Ikxx, “The car is fast, the track is narrow, if you make a mistake, you pay cash. Sometimes a lot of cash.”

Next Dates For Monaco Historic Races in 2016

The F1 Grand Prix of Monaco (see Monaco Grand Prix) is hugely popular and extremely crowded and expensive, but for the same atmosphere and a bit of nostalgia, attending the historics is a much more relaxed affair, allowing you to get toe close to these magnificent machines in the public paddock between races. You can actually find a hotel room in Monaco during the Historics at a price to fit a budget and can see the Riviera principality without the crowds and madness of the full Grand Prix the following week.

 

How many Italian mechanics does it take to start a Ferrari?

Ferrari at Monaco Historics Grand Prix photoThe highlight of a past Monaco Historic Grand Prix race was to be the “Parade of Ferraris”. The planned grand display of the Formula 1 Grand Prix history of the famous Italian racingFerrari driven by schumacher hauled away at Monaco photo marque ran into a snag, literally - when one of the drivers ran into another in the hairpin turn, the whole parade came to a screeching halt, with the valuable cars driven in their competition days by the likes of Michael Scumacher and Jean Alesi had to be hauled away on trucks. Watch Ferrari Video. You never know what can happen at the GP Historique.

Getting to Monaco? Fly into Cote a’Azur airport in Nice and rent a car or take the train. If staying in Nice (see Choice Hotel Bargains in Nice ), the train ride is about 15-20 minutes to Monte-Carlo with a one-way fare of about 6 euros.
