0 Comments

Since its 2018 edition, aware of having to revalue an important international heritage, the Organizing Committee and the Collector's Car Commission of the Automobile Club de Monaco have decided to make a touch-up to their meeting by favoring Formula 1 So in 2021, in the authentic and magical setting of the Principality's circuit, the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, 12th in its history, remains faithful to this commitment by celebrating in particular Ferrari's first success in the World Championship ...

The 2020 edition, faithful to this axis, proposed to celebrate the 70 years of the birth of the Formula 1 World Championship. Unfortunately, the Covid 19 pandemic decided otherwise. As severe as it is, the epidemic has not however damaged the current range and 2021 will allow fans of the queen discipline to compete in real races. Despite the current health constraints, more than 90 competitors will be present. And each tray will have something to amaze enthusiasts and connoisseurs!

The battle at the top of the carts (Series A), the iconic Maserati 250F facing a great diversity of motor single-seaters (Series B), the richness of the Series C (Sports Cars) and D (F1 of the sixties), but also the third of the E Series, made up of 12 cylinders (Ferrari, Matra and BRM), the F Series with three former Grand Prix drivers and a multiple winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and finally the G Series with the most recent F1s , diverse and very colorful ... The diversity and richness of the fields will even allow the Ferrari brand to be honored and thus to celebrate, as it should be, the first victory in the Formula 1 World Championship obtained by the Argentinian Froilan Gonzales in 1951 on the Silverstone circuit.

Thus, we will have the pleasure of seeing four models running which have written the most beautiful pages of motorsport:

The present car is the last F1 engine before to have won a Grand Prix in this case that of Italy 1960 at Monza at the hands of Phil Hill. In the C Series, the 250 Mille Miglia from 1953 to recall the only year 1952 when the F1 were replaced in Monaco by Sports Cars.
  • The four (yes 4 !!) types 312 in Series E (n ° 3/4/6/8) to evoke the period of the first F1- 3 Liters.
  • The two 312B3s in the F Series, respectively driven by Jean Alesi and René Arnoux (former official drivers and winners in their respective careers with the Scuderia), to testify to the rebirth of the Maranello firm, once again victorious thanks to Niki Lauda from 1974 .

For this non-exhaustive selection, as much as for the rest of the field, taken individually or as a whole, it is the rarity and the very exceptional that awaits the spectators, with 7 different starting grids and nearly one hundred cars. each one as exceptional as the next, with a unique degree of conservation. For two and a half days, the competitors will thus share their passion for competition at the highest level, in a real racing situation, with the noises and smells that characterize their cars, confronted with those with which they once competed for victory over a circuit built in the heart of the Principality of Monaco, whose layout, 80% identical to that of 1929, is still and still used today as part of the FIA ​​Formula 1 World Championship ...
