9th Grand Prix Historique de Monaco
The romance of racing around the tight Monaco street circuit in Monte Carlo has long been a lure for historic hotshoes. The inaugural Grand Prix Historique de Monaco was held in 1997 and was intended to be a one-off event to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the Grimaldi dynasty. Such was the success of the event, however, that there was a repeat performance in 2000 and it has been held biennially ever since, the latest festival running from 9-11 May 2014. Such is the nature of the circuit that the one guarantee is that it will never be boring.
