The biennial Monaco Historic Grand Prix is run on the famous formula 1 circuit with classic Grand Prix cars from the 1940s to 1980s. Your two day grandstand seated ticket for practise and race days also gives access to cars and drivers in the harbour side paddock. Stay at the 4-star Novotel Nice centre, or upgrade to the 4-star Prince de Galles Hotel Menton, or Monaco’s Hotel Novotel Monte Carlo with helicopter transfer option. Optional experiences include Ferrari drives and helicopter sightseeing.
Historic Grand Prix
This motor racing extravaganza, celebrating its 11th edition in 2018. In contrast to its modern day counterpart, held two weeks later, the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique is far more relaxed, friendlier and accessible. You can get close to cars and drivers on a stroll through the paddock – definitely off limits at the F1 GP, and you’ll have plenty of elbow room in the grandstand too – we include a seated ticket on final race day. Many of our clients have visited both events, but none were interested in going back to the future - the historique event was their overwhelming favourite.
