Monaco Grand Prix - Preparations


Perhaps the biggest date on the Monaco calendar is the Monaco Grand Prix. This year it will be held on the 22 - 25 May, with the Historique Grand Prix earlier - 10 - 11 May.

As you can see, the preparations are well under way - here the port is filled with all the paraphernalia needed to construct the massive stands.

This is the first of a series where we'll see how the Principality prepares for this prestigious event.

It's interesting to see how everything is being built. We saw pretty much already done when we visited Monaco last time. Funny how fences and gates make your daily routines so much more difficult!

I'm looking forward to see more photos during April(and May?)

Wow, a big event indeed. Looks like a whole lot of man-hours go into making this race happen. Are these simply temporary structures? I'm guessing so.

Looking forward to watching the races through your lens!

What a lot of work! Isn't it always fascinating to go "behind the scenes"?

This is very cool! This will be my first time viewing the Grand Prix ... on your blog. Too bad I couldn't see it in person!
