Grand Prix Historique de Monaco 2010

#1 Post by Richiemac » Sat May 08, 2010 1:00 pm

For all you lovers of old racing cars this is the place to come. With 8 or 9 races in the day for cars ranging from 1947 grand prix cars, formula 3, formula 1 upto 1974 and formula 1 from 1975 - 1978.

The noise is deafening!!!! We were seated in the Casino Square facing the Casino. When the cars roared into the square the stand vibrated! The smell of petrol and rubber hung in the air for ages....a great experience!
