Monaco GP Historique

My OH asked if I'd be interested - she'd seen some adverts for a minibreak . After picking myself up from the floor - racing is not normally her thing - the answer was yes, of course . Obviously I've seen it on TV -and it looks to have all the appeal of the modern race but without all the bad bits of modern F1 . Is this a gift horse I should look in the mouth - any problems re circuit access etc ? I'm tempted just to say a resounding YES .



If you've been I'd value your experience .

Brilliant. Do it. It's a great experience and there's often some very, very good racing.

Haven't been for a few years but I've done it twice and the old man has been 3 times. I suspect it's getting busier these days but well worth it, my last time was the 2016 edition when this happened https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sE7vlIh_N8

We stayed in Nice and train in every day as it's only about 10 euros (although don't forget to validate ticket else it can cost a lot more). In Monte Carlo it's a short walk to the track but allow a bit more time on race day. Fridays the grandstands aren't reserved so a good chance to see some different parts of the track. I enjoyed being at Casino Square on those days as it's a 'must do' but probably more suited to practice day than racing.

Personally I like to have a different spot for each day, I'd avoid the swimming pool grandstand which is marina side of the tracks as it's a bit far away. THe old man reckoned down by Tabac looking up towards the chicane was good, and I liked being at the back of the same grandstand as you can look over the back to the start/finish.

I say do it, you get the Monaco experience for a fraction of the price, with more track action, more romantic cars and fewer people. In 2012 we noted that a Sunday ticket for the GP a few weeks later was something like 400 euros a seat. So for less money we'd had 2.5 days of racing, flights, transfers, accommodation and food/drink.

Not sure if the photos will work, but hopefully do and give you an idea of what was there in 2012

You need to put your train ticket into the yellow machine at the station at the start of your journey. The machine prints something on your ticket to validate it. Alternatives to Nice are Menton (12 minutes on the train from Monaco) or the lovely town of Villefranche-sur-Mer which is about 2 stops on the train from Nice.

Just asked parents about this and got a surprising yes if able to.

Hope the weathers better than last year but one of those events I'd love to experience.

I'm very much looking forward to it. Anyone going down there need a truckie/awning builder? (7.5t maximum) I've booked myself out from the race weekend I'm due to work at so I may as well make an adventure of it.

Monaco GP Historique spectating

Hi all
After enjoying motor sport for many years as a race marshal, had to take 3 years out due to illness, now much better and hoping to do the above as a spectator in 2020. Looking online lots of high end packages, but I am on a budget.
Are there entry fees each day for the stands, if so how expensive?
Planning on staying in Nice and getting the train each day, is this the simplest option.
TIA
Barry

Monaco GP Historique grandstands 2020

After advice please.
I have booked flights and accommodation for this May, now looking for best viewing points a reasonable cost. I am looking at possibly the casino grandstand but the admin charges on tickets seem very high. Do i need to buy these in advance, or can I get them there?
Any advice on other exciting locations to watch from? Also hoping to do some photography while there.

Monaco Historics is a great meeting. I can recommend Casino Square for qualifying and Tabac K1 for race day. You can see screen well from both stands.
The prices are all the same the seats are now allocated for this meeting. Cheapest option is to book direct here. https://acm.mc/en/edition/grand-prix...-edition-2020/
