Monza Gran Prix

In late summer you'll always hear the loud rumble of car engines both inside and outside the Monza Racetrack, national monument to speed.

The tradition is that the Italian Formula 1 Gran Prix always takes place on a Sunday in September. The first-ever race was won by Pietro Bordino driving for FIAT: that was on 10 September 1922.

Since 1950 the Brianza circuit has been host to the Formula 1 World Championships. Who holds the championship record? Michael Schumacher, with five wins between 1996 and 2006.

Adrenalin, plenty of fuel, and drivers pushing themselves to the limits, Monza is the fastest track in Formula 1. Every year thousands of fans crowd into the stands to witness a race that they know is going to make international motor-racing history.

The track is located in the Monza Great Park - Parco di Monza, one of the largest and oldest parks in Europe, part of the larger Regional Park in Valle del Lambro.


Every September.
