Monaco Historic Grand Prix 2014 – Report and Photos

The Monaco Historic Grand Prix 2014 was held 9-11 May on the famous 3.34-km Monaco Grand Prix Circuit. The biennial Monaco Historics is considered as one of the top historic track events, as classic grand prix and sports cars race on the same track as the modern Formula One cars competing in the Monaco Grand Prix.

Organized by the Automobile Club de Monaco, the 9th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique was comprised of seven races, each tailored to provide spectators and participants the opportunity to relive the motorsport event that started on 14th April 1929. Practice and qualifying sessions for the seven race groups took place on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th May and the races were held on Sunday 11th May. The races were 10-12 laps each, or a maximum of 30-35 minutes, with 18 laps or a maximum of 45 minutes for the more modern Formula 1 and Formula 3 races.

A feature of the 2014 race weekend was the Credit Suisse Historic Racing Forum, which saw former racing drivers Sir Stirling Moss, Derek Bell, Jochen Mass and Romain Dumas in a discussion about ‘Dream Circuits’. A series of further discussions and photo shoots followed, including reuniting Sir Stirling Moss with a Maserati 250 F – being run by American driver Tom Price – to mark the famous 1956 Monaco Grand Prix victory by Moss in a sister car.

Similar to 2012, Senior Photographer Tim Scott also documented the 2014 Monaco Historics, offering the following images that expertly capture the flair of this biennial historic motorsport event. We split up Tim’s pictures into two galleries. The first gallery starting below features our favorite images, all displayed in the full-width view of Sports Car Digest, while the second gallery and race results can be found on the last page of the article and gives a comprehensive view of all the photographs.
