Stories of The Riviera


Grand Prix de Monaco

Threading itself through the streets of Port Hercule, Monte Carlo and La Condamine, the Circuit de Monaco is an icon of the racing calendar. The stakes are high with the route’s infamous tunnel and swimming pool chicane interspersed with hairpin bends, short straights and a narrow track presenting a challenge as thrilling to watch as is it to drive.

This legendary race has been a staple of racing enthusiasts’ agendas since it was first won in 1929 by William Grover-Williams and his Bugatti for the grand sum of 100,000 French francs.
