Grand Prix de Monaco Historique

From 10 to 12 May 2024, the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique will see classic racing cars speed along the legendary circuit that winds through the streets of the Principality, in what is now a traditional annual tribute to motor sport of yesteryear.

A step back in time

Organised by the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM) since 1997, the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique is held every two years ahead of the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Today, it is an essential event for classic car collectors and enthusiasts from all over the world and has grown steadily in popularity, with bigger crowds flocking to Monaco every year to admire the vintage racing cars.
Last year marked the 70th anniversary of the only non-championship Monaco Grand Prix meeting, reserved exclusively for cars in the “sport” category, rather than modern-style single-seaterss.

 

Spectators can look forward to a spectacular series of races, each featuring a different class of exceptionally rare vehicles.
Over the course of three days, the competitors will share their passion for top-class sport under real race conditions. And of course, there will be the distinctive noise and smell of vintage racing cars in the heart of the Principality of Monaco, on the iconic circuit where 80% of the straights and turns remain exactly as they were back in 1929, and are still used every year for the most glamorous Grand Prix of the Formula 1 World Championship.

A celebration of motor sport

Following the resounding success of last year’s meeting, the Organising Committee of the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM) has decided to leave the event format unchanged, with the same eight series and classes for 2024. Highlights will include tributes and anniversary celebrations during real races in the authentic and majestic setting of the Principality’s circuit.

This 14th edition of GP de Monaco Historique is set to turn several pages in motor racing history.  A decade-by-decade look back at some of the cars and drivers to have graced the circuit in Monaco since 1924 includes some legendary names!

 

1,800 new parking spaces

Spectators arriving by car can now enjoy easier access to the circuit and special rates by using the new "Parking des Salines" car park at the western entrance to the Principality, opposite the Exotic Garden.

From the car park, it's just a 15 minute walk to the circuit via the Galerie des Salines. Simply follow the signposts. Alternatively, use one of the free shuttle buses laid on by Monaco's bus operator CAM. You will just need to show your car park ticket on boarding.

The buses will run ever ten minutes from 8 am to 8 pm, between the Parking des Salines and Avenue Albert II in Fontvieille. Spectators can then walk to the Place d'Armes and the F1 circuit in minutes, or use the elevators.

Spectators with reduced mobility are encouraged to use this solution if possiblen.
