Monaco His­toric Grand Prix 2016

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Satur­day 27 May @6.30am, Chan­nel 4

Chan­nel 4 picked up For­mula 1 cov­er­age from the BBC af­ter it pulled out in 2015. This high­lights show of 2016’s Monaco His­toric Grand Prix is an hour of ac­tion-packed rac­ing from our favourite epoch of rac­ing – span­ning the Fan­gio-era Fifties right up to the Ste­wart-age Seven­ties. The rac­ing it­self is fierce, and a lot more com­pet­i­tive than it has any right to be, given that the cars are so valu­able, and there are ap­pear­ances from rac­ing A-lis­ters like Sir Stir­ling Moss and Adrian Newey. It’s worth lis­ten­ing to with the sound turned up to 11 – the howl­ing V8s bounc­ing off Monaco’s walls and bar­ri­ers are a de­light. The only down­side is its tim­ing – it might be one to record.
