And that’s what makes the 3.34km circuit so exciting.
Modern cars reach speeds of 290km/h, lapping the 19-corner circuit 78 times, with each taking less than 75 seconds. Onboards are dizzying.
So join us for a slightly slower, but no less exhilarating trip around the Principality at this year’s Monaco Historique. Watch from behind the driver’s glistening green helmet and enjoy the glorious roar as the car competes in the Série G class for F1 cars from the late 1970s and early 1980s. The Ensign N179 we’re onboard may not have been either the prettiest, or most successful of F1 cars, but the spectacle is undimmed.
