Show in the Temple of Speed with International GT Open and Trial delle Nazioni

Riccardo Cazzaniga from Monza wins race-1 of the GT Open together with Klaus Bachler in the wet, while Osborne-Moss bends the resistance of their rivals in the dry. Italy goes to the podium in all classes of the Trial and triumphs in the Challenge category in front of hundreds of spectators.

There was no shortage of surprises at the weekend of the International GT Open and the Trial delle Nazioni at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. For the GT Open races, both in the premier class and in the five support series, the leaders of the overall rankings experienced a weekend of highs and lows, giving way to unexpected victories. In the Trial, on the other hand, Italy got on the podium in the men and women and achieved a prestigious success in the Challenge class with Alessia Bacchetta and Mirko Pedretti. For both events, the weather, not exactly benevolent on Saturday, also took care of it, to make them even more unpredictable, with several riders of both the two and four wheels who demonstrated their skills in extreme conditions.

The Italian flag flies on the top step of the podium of race-1 of the International GT Open. The credit goes to Riccardo Cazzaniga from Monza who, together with the Austrian Klaus Bachler of the Dinamic Motorsport team, team making their seasonal debut, won the victory on Saturday in the wet after obtaining an excellent third place in qualifying on the Porsche 991 GT3 R 2019. Cazzaniga starts well and consolidates the starting position, but the real turning point of the race comes when the driver changes under the safety car regime, when the duo manages to be faster than their rivals and to jump in the lead, keeping it up to the checkered flag. Behind them, second and third respectively, are the Mercedes AMG GT3 Evo - 2021 of Florian Scholze and Alain Valente (Team GT) and the Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo of Roman Ziemian and Axcil Jefferies (Kessel Racing). Difficult race for the Oregon Team, with the two pairs of drivers fighting for the title finishing seventh with Kevin Gilardoni and Glenn Van Berlo and eighth with Benjamin Hites and Leonardo Pulcini.

Race-2 on Sunday is also decided by the whirlwind of pit stops and strategies. The first part of the race sees an intense battle between David Fumanelli's Ferrari (Kessel Racing), Bachler's Porsche and Joe Osborne's McLaren 720 S GT3 (Optimum Motorsport), competing for the lead for several laps. But it is McLaren's strategy that pays more than all the others, with Osborne stopping later than his rivals, setting a better pace with a clear road ahead and gaining the advantage enough to give teammate Nick Moss a comfortable return to the track. as a leader at the moment of the passing of the baton. Osborne-Moss thus crossed the finish line first, preceding Hites-Pulcini - second - and the duo Sébastien Baud-Steve Jans (GetSpeed Performance) on Mercedes AMG GT3 - 2022. The results of the weekend still keep the games open for the drivers' title, which will be decided in Barcelona.

Jan Lauryssen is en plein in the two races of the GT Cup Open Europe . On Saturday, the Belgian driver of the Q1-trackracing team cleared all competitors by 15 seconds after recovering from the third position on the grid, preceding both teammate John de Wilde, second, and the duo composed of Jaume Font and Joan at the finish line. Vinyes (Baporo Motorsport), which must be satisfied with the less prestigious square of the podium. All three drivers were behind the wheel of a Porsche 992 GT3 Cup. In race-2 on Sunday Lauryssen precedes the duo Dirk Schouten-Lukas Valkre (Q1-trackracing) and Font-Vinyes, again third.

It was a weekend of two faces for TCR Europe overall leader Franco Girolami (Comtoyou Racing). In race-1, won by John Filippi's CUPRA Leon Competition TCR (Sébastien Loeb Racing - Bardhal Team) ahead of Jáchym Galáš's Hyundai Elantra N TCR (Hyundai Janìk Motorsport) and Mike Halder's Honda Civic Type R FK7 TCR (Halder Motorsport) ), Girolami had to be satisfied with the final twelfth place, before making a comeback in the Sunday appointment, concluded as the winner. Behind the Argentine driver's Audi RS 3 LMS II TCR, the CUPRA Leon of Klim Gavrilov (Volcano Motorsport) and Sergio López (RC2 Junior Team) finished in order. With this result, Girolami is the big favorite to win the title in the last round of the championship scheduled in Barcelona.

Even Oliver Goethe, protagonist of the Euroformula Open until now, did not live the weekend he had imagined. In the first of the three Brianza races, the Dane did not go beyond sixth place. The victory was won by poleman Vladislav Lomko (Cryptotower Racing Team), who triumphed in the wet ahead of Frederick Lubin (Team Motopark) and his teammate Christian Mansell. In race-2, Goethe was unlucky and was forced to start from the pitlane due to a technical problem a few moments from the start. Cryptotower Racing Team thus obtained another victory with Josh Mason, who preceded Lomko and Alex García (Team Motopark). In the last race, Lomko repeated himself, finishing ahead of Mason and Lubin, while Goethe, fourth until a few laps to go, spun after being involved in a collision.

The French drivers of Catheram France also had a hard time, presenting the busiest grid among the categories in the race at Monza, with 48 starters. In both races, held on Saturday afternoon in pouring rain and on Sunday in the dry to close the program, the transalpine Mathys Jaubert (Palm) won the most important post. In race-1, Jaubert defeated Bastien Gassin (ST Eloi), second, and Gary Gachnang (Palm), third. In race-2, the middle step of the podium went to Jeremy Azar (Rosselsp) and the less prestigious to Bruno Noregral (Palm).

The victory of the first of the two 25-minute races plus one lap of the Alpine Elf Europa Cup is also French. Alexis Garcin (Herrero Racing) took pole and victory in Saturday's competition ahead of Lucas Frayssinet (Chazel Technologie Course) and Louis Méric (Race Cars Consulting). Frayssinet confirmed his second place in race-2, after competing for the victory until the last corner with Simon Tirman (Autosport GT), first at the finish. Garcin closed in third position instead.

The good pilots of the Trial of Nations had to work hard to overcome the pitfalls of all the tests of the Temple of Speed. Especially on the dirt road, made even more slippery by the rain on Saturday, the drivers amazed the hundreds of fans who flocked to the circuit to admire the event with series feats.

In addition to the aforementioned Italian victory signed by Bacchetta-Pedretti in front of Norway and Germany, our tricolor rose to the podium in both the male and female categories. Among the men, Matteo Grattarola, Lorenzo Gandola and Luca Petrella kept behind the fearsome trio of Great Britain - third at the end of the day - but they had to surrender to the supremacy of Spain, which also brought the 32-time world champion to Monza. disciplines Tony Bou, together with Jaime Busto and Adam Raga.

The result is a different portrait of a racetrack that was, and is, the scene of events involving champions, builders, various characters, even in strong colors. Often unreleased episodes that have become legends. Monza seen from an angle never explored: less obvious, more truthful and above all more exciting.

Alessandra Zinno, General Manager of Autodromo Nazionale Monza, comments: «The creation of a podcast on the Temple of Speed was a goal we had in the pipeline to enrich the centenary celebrations. Summarizing 100 years of history of a legendary track, which has seen all the strongest drivers in the history of motorsport darting along its straights and curbs, was a difficult and stimulating challenge at the same time, which allowed us to tell some of the most extraordinary stories that the world of motors has ever known. With the voice of Pino Allievi, we believe we have created a dynamic product within the reach of everyone, passionate about challenges on and off the track ».

For Pino Allievi the path designed in this series is aimed at telling “One hundred years of priceless emotions. Secrets and exploits of the pilots who have made history ". It begins with the birth of the racetrack in 1922, to explore its history linked to the Formula 1 drivers (including Nuvolari, Varzi, the Ascari, Fangio) who contributed to generating the myth of the circuit.

Following the relationship between Ferrari and Monza , the protagonists of "a day of glory in Monza", from Scarfiotti to Fittipaldi passing through Alboreto, Montoya and Frentzen up to Monza beyond Formula 1: the motorcycling grand prix, the 1000 Kilometers , the Junior Formula.

But Monza is also the story of great defeats , bad luck and first times, like the first woman at the start of an F1 GP, daring accidents and hidden fears of the drivers. The last episode is dedicated to the relationship between the racetrack and the city of Monza, from the enthusiastic cheering of the public to the little-known stories of the Monza drivers who took to the track.

“Monza 100 - The Autodromo podcast” is an eight-part podcast series conceived and produced by Dr Podcast Audio Factory LTD for Autodromo Nazionale Monza. The series is available on all audio streaming platforms and on the website in the dedicated PODCAST section.


The record-breaking Grand Prix in the centenary year of the Autodromo Nazionale Monza

The Formula 1 Pirelli Italian Grand Prix 2022 will be the most attended race in the history of the Temple of Speed: 350 thousand people expected over the weekend. Timmy Trumpet and Vinai the deejay stars of the weekend.

The Autodromo Nazionale Monza Centenary Grand Prix will be an unprecedented success with the public. To confirm this, during the press conference to present the Formula 1 Pirelli Italian Grand Prix 2022 which took place today in the Tazio Nuvolari Press Room of the circuit and in the Monza Meta Circuit, the Autodromo nel Metaverso, was the President of the Automobile Club of Italy Angelo Sticchi Damiani who also announced the presence in the stands of the President of the Republic on Sunday Sergio Mattarella.

The race of the Formula 1 World Championship, scheduled from Friday 9 to Sunday 11 September, will bring about 350 thousand people inside the Temple of Speed, marking the historical record of attendance on the occasion of the century of life of the sports facility.

The fans will therefore fill, as never before, the stands and lawn areas on the occasion of the second Italian leg of the world series. The expected public moved an impressive organizational machine to offer spectators not only the show on the track but also an entertainment program that could accompany them throughout the race weekend.

The expectations and news of the internationally important event hosted by the Autodromo Nazionale Monza were illustrated today in the presence of the Executive Vice President and CEO of Pirelli Marco Tronchetti Provera, the President of the Lombardy Region Attilio Fontana, the President of AcMilano Geronimo La Russa, the President of the Autodromo Giuseppe Redaelli, the Mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala and the Mayor of Monza Paolo Pilotto.

The first to speak was the President of ACI Angelo Sticchi Damiani: «With the highest number of spectators ever recorded, we are preparing to play the 93rd Italian GP - 88 in Monza - in the circuit that, in the world, has hosted more motoring Grand Prix and that 3 days he turned 100 years ago. These few numbers would be enough to describe Monza, the pride and satisfaction we feel together today. But the Monza racetrack is not just numbers, on the contrary, it is above all the throbbing emotion for the ability and courage of the drivers who, over the decades, have measured themselves against the 'Temple of Speed'; it is the passion in its stands for this extraordinary Formula 1 man-machine union. Monza is the contribution to technological evolution and is the future of motoring, while the car faces epochal transformations. It is therefore only right today to thank the women and men who, since 1922, have allowed all this, the millions and millions of fans who bring the racetrack and the institutions to life - from the Municipality of Monza to the Lombardy Region and the Government. - who are supporting us in the construction of the next 100 years. In conclusion, allow me to say: Monza: a hundred years and not hear them ».

Marco Tronchetti Provera, Executive Vice President and CEO of Pirelli: «The Monza racetrack is a second home for us. We competed and won in the 'Temple of Speed', starting with the 1922 Italian Grand Prix when Pirelli-equipped cars came in front of everyone. Monza was also our first 'open-air laboratory'. Within the track there is still a part called the 'Pirelli Circuit' where our engineers tested the prototypes of our road tires. This is also why we are very happy, in the same year as our 150th anniversary, to join the celebrations for the first century of the Monza racetrack, which represents in the world a symbol of competition and passion for motorsport ».

Geronimo La Russa, President of AcMilano: «In the first hundred years of its history, the Autodromo Nazionale Monza has shone with its own light. In the future, we at Automobile Club Milano will strive to make it even more accessible to fans and motorsport enthusiasts thanks, for example, to the extension of the metro line 5 which will connect Milan to the capital of Brianza. The challenge is to create a sort of functional synergy between motorsport and sustainable mobility, which guarantees our circuit to continue to be a model to be imitated and a reference point for international motorsport. The other important theme is that of Milanese motorsport which in addition to the racetrack boasts other 'ambassadors' at an international level. I am thinking of the 150 years of Pirelli and the 112 years of Alfa Romeo. As it has always done since 1903, the year of its birth, Automobile Club Milano will continue to work as a system and team with the entrepreneurial realities of the area. In this way we want to confirm our historical vocation in discovering and passing on the Milanese excellences of world caliber in the history of motorsport ».

Giuseppe Redaelli, President of Autodromo Nazionale Monza: «The extraordinary turnout of public that we await during the race weekend is the real celebration for the century of life of the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. The Temple of Speed has always linked its fame to the historicity and the warmth of the fans. It also demonstrates this in its hundred years of life with a record edition of the Formula 1 Pirelli Grand Prix of Italy 2022. However, this anniversary must not only make us look to the past but must encourage us to plan the future of the circuit. The racetrack has always been an innovator in the automotive and racing field and now it is also an innovator in technology. We are in fact the first circuit in the world in the Metaverse, a virtual world where fans can visit the structures and the track, chatting with each other and participating in events. Even today's press conference, for example, is broadcast in the Monza Meta Circuit so that all interested enthusiasts can follow it remotely ».

Paolo Pilotto, Mayor of Monza: «The centenary of the racetrack is the leitmotif around which this year's long-awaited Grand Prix is developed and the history of the Monza circuit is now preparing to experience a new season of innovation, to compete in the challenges of modernity. Monza is ready to welcome the many visitors expected for the next weekend with an enhanced mobility plan: to lighten traffic, an additional car park will be set up in Vedano, thus reaching a total offer of 7900 available parking spaces. With the MOVE to GP app, it is already possible to book and buy parking and shuttle, to optimize travel times as much as possible and limit excessive congestion ».

Giuseppe Sala, Mayor of Milan, commented: «The Italian Grand Prix is one of the most awaited races by Formula 1 lovers. This year the appointment will be followed with even greater emotion, both because this will be the first race to be held. here after the health emergency, and because it will take place precisely in the days in which the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza celebrates its centenary. Our city and our territory know how to welcome and organize sporting events of international level, the history of the Monza circuit and the participation of so many fans and enthusiasts testify to this with enthusiasm ».

Attilio Fontana, President of the Lombardy Region: "The Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix 2022 which takes place at the Monza racetrack is one of the most important events held in Lombardy, a symbol of the strong international vocation of our territory and an initiative capable of promoting business development and investment attraction. Reasons why the Lombardy Region continues to support it by financing the expenses for organization and management costs. A commitment undertaken with a great sense of responsibility and in the awareness of the strategic nature of the event. A unique opportunity for visibility in favor of the Lombardy Region, the city of Monza and its excellences - Park and Autodrome. This year also marks the centenary of the racetrack: a century of speed, challenges, victories and Italian style. An icon of Made in Italy: the “Temple of Speed and Beauty of Sport”, but also an avant-garde and innovation venue for the future of mobility and not just for motor sports ».
