After watching the “greatest spectacle in racing” yesterday I was reminded of another legendary high-speed oval located in a park-like setting near the northern Italian city of Monza near Milan. Like the legendary Brickyard of the Indianapolis 500, Parco di Monza is the home of the Autodrome Nazionale di Monza, the biggest motor sports centre in Italy and one of the most complete and famous in the world. There are 3 tracks in the complex including a 6.214 oval circuit tract with a history as legendary as the Indianapolis 500 with truly incredible speeds and crashes. The banking of the track caused many fatal accidents especially in the early years of Formula 1 racing. See what it is like to have driven Monza.
I-Racing, one of the leading on-line racing sim games sites, is planning to add Autodromo Nazionale Monza to its catalogue of laser-scanned versions of the world’s great race tracks and I can’t wait to take a drive on this legendary circuit.
