The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the oldest and most prestigious motor races. Taking place in the Principality of Monaco, this race is held on a street circuit designed in 1929 by Antony Noghes, the Automobile Club de Monaco president’s son, under the auspices of Prince Louis II of Monaco. The bold creation met the challenge of organizing a competition on the confined territory of Monaco (around 1.5 km² at that time), a condition that the Commission Sportive Internationale required for the Automobile Club de Monaco to be internationally recognised.

The Monaco Grand Prix is organized by the Automobile Club de Monaco which also organizes the Monte Carlo Rally, historical trials, a competition for electric or hybrid vehicles, and the Monaco Kart Cup.

The first Grand Prix was won on 14 April 1929 by William Grover-Williams, driving a recognised Bugatti entered by the famous Molsheim manufacturer. Monaco has known only fourteen years without a Grand Prix and this legendary event soon become a must. Since 1955, this unique race has featured in the Formula 1 world championship calendar every year.
