Autodromo Nazionale di Monza
The Monza Circuit is a 5.793 km race track near the city of Monza, north of Milan, in Italy. Built in 1922, it was the world’s third purpose-built motor racing circuit after Brooklands and Indianapolis and the oldest in mainland Europe. The circuit’s biggest event is the Italian Grand Prix. With the exception of the 1980 running, the race has been hosted there since 1949.
Built in the Royal Villa of Monza park in a woodland setting, the site has three tracks including a high-speed oval track with the iconic steep bankings. The major features of the main Grand Prix track include the Curva Grande, the Curva di Lesmo, the Variante Ascari and the Curva Alboreto.
