Track of The Month – August 2021

 Monza – Italy

This August, Monza is The Race Centre’s Track of the Month.

Autodromo Nazionale di Monza was originally opened on the 3rd of September 1922 and continually been known as the Temple Of Speed due to its long straights and fast corners which are broken up with 2 chicanes and Ascari which is a fast left, right, left leading on to the back straight. Since the start of Formula One, Monza has been a staple of the F1 calendar with it being in every season bar the 1980 season.

This year, the Italian Grand Prix will be open to fans again. The current plan is to have the circuit at 50% capacity. It will also host the second trial of Formula 1’s new ‘Sprint Qualifying’ Format.

We hope that you enjoy the challenge and excitement of Monza this month at The Race Centre.
