RACE WEEKEND MONZA
30th Aug - 1st Sept 2024
THE ULTIMATE RACE EXPERIENCE
The Italian GP returns to the intricate yet fast Monza circuit for 2023 which has been its home since 1950. Many drivers who prove victorious at Monaza go on to win that season's entire Championship and as such the race can be seen as a great indicator of the year's future racing results. Homegrown constructor Ferrari will be looking to once again add to its 20 previous wins there with their huge local support group the 'Tifosi'
Formula 1’s fastest ever lap was set at Monza – Williams driver Juan Pablo Montoya’s 260.6km/h effort during practice for the 2004 Grand Prix – which should give you some idea of the nature of the track the locals call ‘La Pista Magica’. Cars are on full throttle for 80% of the lap, and hit their Vmax on the circuit’s 1.1km start/finish straight. From there, they roar off into the historic park section, where a series of big stops into tight chicanes give the brakes a good workout.
