Monaco: Two grand prix automobiles for the price of one!

Monaco is, of course, the Formula 1 Grand Prix which takes place every spring. But it is also the historic Grand Prix that has been in existence since 1997.
It takes place every two years before the Monaco F1 Grand Prix.
It takes place on the same circuit as the Formula 1 Grand Prix with the added charm of vintage cars that offer a retrospective of motor racing from the last century.
This Grand Prix is organised, like the Formula 1, by the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM) and every year more and more people are falling in love with classic cars and the races that have made the circuit famous.
The circuit laid out in town is almost the same as the one of the first Grand Prix in 1929.

The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the oldest and one of the three most prestigious races in the world, held in the Principality of Monaco, on an urban circuit designed in 1929 by Antony Noghès, son of the President of the Automobile Club de Monaco, under the auspices of Prince Louis II of Monaco.

Ayrton Senna: 6 victories 1963-1987, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993
