Grand Prix Historique - Arrival

This is the 6th year Monaco will hold the Grand Prix Historique. It's held every other year, whereas the Formula 1 Grand Prix is held every year, of course.

When the Historique first started, the Automobile Club of Monaco looked down on the idea and had nothing to do with it. They soon changed their minds when they saw how popular it's become and now the Club has taken over the organisation. Click on the link to read more.

Yesterday, many of the cars arrived and were then pushed to their designated place in this area, to the right of the port. It's a delight for enthusiasts - every car has its own parking bay and display sign as you see in the smaller photograph.

It's easy to know who has just arrived in Monte Carlo - look at the white legs!

For a moment I thought that was Bernie Ecclestone walking towards us but it's not.

Hehe, White legs are a give away here too! Pity we don't have red cars like that one though!

It must be an exciting time in Monte Carlo with the Grand Prix Historique going on.

The white socks amused me. How strange a lot of events like these are initially frowned upon, that soon become institution.

What a thrill it must be to see these historic cars! "Louis" would enjoy this very much!
