Good Seats Still Open for Monaco Grand Prix

Thousands of auto races are held all over the world annually, but very few can compare to the prestige and glamour of the Monaco Grand Prix. Run since 1929, the race is held on the Circuit de Monte Carlo, which is a narrow course strategically mapped through the streets of the local township—in a similar fashion to the Circuit de la Sarthe at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. As one of the most difficult courses in Formula 1 racing, the Monaco Grand Prix is a place where legends are born—Ayrton Senna, Graham Hill, Michael Schumacher, Jackie Stewart, and Stirling Moss, among others, each won multiple victories. In fact, the Brazilian triple world champion Nelson Piquet once described racing at Monaco similar to, “Riding a bicycle around your living room.”

While most Formula One fans will be viewing the race from their living rooms, there is nothing quite like experiencing Monaco first hand; there are still some great viewing options available for spectators at this year’s event, being held on May 25 and 26. Tickets for the F1 Paddock Club—the race’s most exclusive viewing package, at a price of $6,279—provide access to private lounges inside the prestigious Yacht Club de Monaco, including a shaded relaxation area right next to the water. A premium viewing spot next to the paddock near the Piscine chicanes and La Rascasse corner is one of the many highlights of this all-inclusive ticket, which also features an open bar and full-course meals throughout Saturday and Sunday. For those interested in simply watching, the best seats available are located in Grandstand K, which are still currently on sale for Saturday and Sunday. This section is perfect for watching the race, since it is on the harbor front, offering a great view from the tunnel exit to the first Piscine chicane. It provides one of the widest views of the circuit from the Grandstand sections. (+337.93.25.47.85, www.monaco-grand-prix.com)
