The Organising Committee and the Historic Department of the Automobile Club de Monaco have opened up the race to a wide selection of categories.
The Historic Monaco Grand Prix was created in 1997, on the 700th anniversary of the Grimaldi Dynasty. Unlike its Formula 1 counterpart, the Historic Grand Prix takes place every two years, a fortnight ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix. Only cars built up to 1980 are eligible to take part.
Following the successful reintroduction of the “Series A” in race format in 2018, the organisers have decided to retain the category for 2020. This category has been THE unmissable world meeting of Grand Prix or “Formula 1” cars since the end of the war. The Sport race has been reworked since 2016 to offer a selection of the most beautiful sports cars from the late 40s and early 50s, including of course those which raced in the only Monaco Grand Prix to feature this category of car, in 1952.
