After the cancellation of the 2020 Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix and other major events due to COVID-19, Monaco is setting its sights on 2021 as a bumper year for events.
The European destination has announced it will host three Grand Prix events in 2021, all in the space of one month.
The 12th edition of Monaco Historic Grand Prix will take place on 23-25 April 2021, before the 4th Monaco E-Prix on 8 May 2021 and the 78th Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix on 20-23 May 2021.
It will be a huge logistical challenge for the team and staff at Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM), as well as the 3,000 volunteers involved in the events.
“To organise three races in the space of one month will be a premiere for us all at ACM,” said ACM general commissioner Christian Tornatore.
“The logistical side promises to be complex, but not impossible to manage! Because of the new constraints, we shall need to start setting up the track earlier than usual, at the end of February, instead of 15 March.
“We will then integrate the technical aspects, on and around the track, required by every category that will be involved.
“In order to achieve this, we will count on the experience and flexibility of all the people involved, in order to achieve our objectives.”
