One of the world's most heralded and iconic motorsport venues, Monza Racetrack is a thrillingly fast circuit situated in a beautiful park just outside Milan. The circuit is most famous for being the home of the F1 Italian Grand Prix™.
Opened in 1922, the Monza Racetrack was only the third permanent circuit in the world. It is renowned for its speed and being the quickest of the F1™ circuits, due to the amazing long straights and limited chicanes, making it a favorite for drivers to test the high speeds and limits of their specialized racecars. In saying that, the super fast corners still provide a stiff challenge for drivers. This event takes place in September each year. It pulls in a huge crowd of locals and visitors to both Milan and Monza and is the annual highlight, with a large number of Ferrari fans supporting the national brand.
