Obligatory Harbor Picture

I’m just coming back from a France/Italy vacation, with the trip starting out with Nice and Monaco. We dedicated our first Sunday to the Historic Grand Prix and exploring Monaco. They ran 10-18 lap races depending on the class, and had seven classes ranging from pre-war cars to the early 80's. More races, more variety, for about 1/10th the price of the actual Grand Prix, pretty good deal. Overall, I highly recommend it if you’re at all considering a trip to Monaco. They do it on even number years two weeks before the actual Grand Prix. Here are a few out of the many pictures I took.

Took a break from the action and explored the Prince’s Palace. Very cool view of the circuit from above.
Porsche 70th Anniversary parade laps included a 917, a 911 Targa, and a few others that i’m not knowledgeable enough to recognize
