Autodromo Nazionale Monza

Italy’s Temple of Speed is another circuit with decades of history and iconic names such as Curva Grande, the Curva di Lesmo and the Variante Ascari. To the passionate and knowledgeable ‘tifosi’, it’s simply the home of top motorsport.

Built in 1922, it was the world’s third purpose-built racing circuit after Brooklands and Indianapolis, and is the oldest in mainland Europe. Located in the Royal Park in Monza, in a woodland setting, it has in the past featured a high-speed oval and sections can still be accessed by foot today.

Races at Monza are those circled in red in the diaries of drivers and fans alike, and for good reason. The circuit has long straights, tricky chicanes, lots of overtaking opportunities and, above all, lots of speed. What’s not to like!

 

Look back to 2023…

In front of a big crowd thanks to Ferrari’s recent win at Le Mans, and in swelteringly hot conditions, the race saw action from start to finish and ended with three different manufacturers on the overall podium – Toyota, Ferrari and Peugeot.

Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and José Maria López in the #7 Toyota denied Ferrari a fairytale home win by crossing the finish line ahead of the #50 AF Corse Ferrari, with the #93 Peugeot giving the French manufacturer its first Hypercar podium. Monza marked the debut of the new Proton Porsche as well as the final appearance for the Glickenhaus cars.
In LMP2, a complex and exhilarating LMP2 battle went the way of JOTA after a tight battle with the #31 Team WRT entry in the last 90-minutes of the race. WRT experienced dramas which cost them potential victory in the class and ended up third behind the #36 Alpine.

Corvette Racing clinched the world championship in LMGTE Am by finishing fourth in class – the first time they’d failed to score a podium this season – while the #77 Dempsey-Proton Racing took the class victory.
