Monza (Warning: Large image)

I always had this dream to re enact the scene from 'Grand Prix' you know the part where the cars are racing flat out around the banking of Monza. The trouble was with the 1/32 scale cars they tended to reproduce the part where the car trips up on the exhaust...

Since the advent of Magnet cars, I kind of miss the old banked track.

Hi Ken

One lap consisted of the racing cars touring past the pits twice if that makes sense. For the first half of the lap they drove the road course and for the second part of the same lap, they drove the banked oval, so each competitor drove past the pits twice, hence Monza has such a wide start/finish straight. Mainly because it was originally two straights running parallel.

A couple more links on Monza:

Monza Banking Photo's

Best regards all,

Jamie
