ITALIAN GRAND PRIX

Our home race! What better way to say farewell to the European part of the season than spending a weekend in the atmospheric Royal Park in Monza, surely one of the most iconic venues in motorsport. As the sun burns the early autumnal mist off the trees early on Sunday morning and the crowds take up their places in the grandstands, in the trees, on the advertising hoardings and anywhere that affords them a view of the track, this race really does feel special. Monza on the outskirts of Milan is around 280 kilometres from our factory and therefore it provides the best opportunity for all our staff who work tirelessly behind the scenes in Faenza to come and see the results of their efforts at first hand.

The Autodromo di Monza was built in 1922, featuring a two-track layout, the normal road circuit and a banked oval. In 1955, the Italian GP was run over both tracks, so that cars passed the start-finish line twice every lap, once when completing a circuit of the oval and once on the road section, giving a total lap distance of almost ten kilometres. The banking, which can still be seen today in a sad state of disrepair, was last used in 1961, while the previous year, another F1 landmark was reached when Phil Hill, driving a Ferrari, scored the last ever win for a front-engined grand prix car. Monza is rightly known as the Temple of Speed, the 2003 Italian Grand Prix holding the record for the fastest ever average race speed, at 247.585km/h, while the 1971 event boasted the closest ever finish in the history of Formula 1, when Peter Gethin beat Ronnie Peterson by just one hundredth of a second and the first five were covered by just 0.61 of a second.
