Since the beginning of March, the teams of the Automobile Club of Monaco and its service providers have mobilized to transform the Principality of Monaco into a real automobile circuit in preparation for the 6th Monaco E-Prix (May 6) and the 80th F1 Monaco Grand Prix (May 25-28). The work began with the repair of almost 50% of the track, with the repair of nearly 15,000 m2 of asphalt in three sectors: Boulevard Albert 1er, the Louis II Tunnel and the South Darse. Around 1,800 tonnes of new surfacing were needed to carry out this work at night, so as not to disrupt road traffic. The work was carried out in two night sessions for each sector, with the planing of the upper part of the bitumen followed by the application of the new asphalt. The objective of this work is to meet international standards and provide single-seaters with an ideal surface, despite the intense traffic that these roads experience throughout the year.
The assembly of the stands for the upcoming motoring events in Monaco has begun. The foundations of the two large main stands (Tribunes K & T) have been laid and will soon be able to accommodate over 10,000 people offering spectacular views over the port of Monaco.
