Motor racing events in Monaco 2012


The Principality of Monaco is unique in having a race track in the middle of an urban setting which will host the 8th Historic Grand Prix from 11 to 13 May 2012. It then makes way from 24 to 27 May to the Monaco Grand Prix which challenges the top F1 drivers and car manufacturers to the limit.


8th Grand Prix Historique – 11 to 13 May

Monaco’s Grand Prix circuit hosts one of the most original motor races in that all the competing cars date from between 1947 to 1984. It’s a live retrospective and a history lesson in motion: great fun for all the family and to share with friends.


70 years of the Monaco Grand Prix – 24 to 27 May

It is “the” Formula 1 event of the year, not just in Monaco but world-wide – and not just for visitors but also the drivers! This is the one the world’s top racing drivers want to win, as they race round the legendary circuit (famously the most difficult of the championship) to the delight of an ever-increasing public.


Gastronomy in pole position
