6,500 spectators will be able to take place free of charge in the stands of the historic Monaco Grand Prix this weekend. Only residents, employees and customers of hotels in Monaco are eligible for a pass. All the volunteers and professionals of the Automobile Club de Monaco have also carried out PCR tests.
The question had been on everyone's lips for weeks in the Principality. Will the Grands Prix (Historic, E-Prix and F1) welcome the public or will they take place behind closed doors?
The twelfth edition of the Historic Grand Prix will be free, and no longer at the single price of 10 euros. Only residents, employees and customers of Monegasque hotels are able to collect the precious sesame for the event.
And this, from this Thursday, in two ticket offices: at the Tourism Department, boulevard des Moulins, and on the Honoré II promenade. (Inquiry +3188.8.131.52.24.)
As a reminder, only free practice on Friday will be held behind closed doors. Saturday's qualifying sessions and Sunday's races will be open to the public.
A LIMITED AUDIENCE
One third of the capacity of the stands will be used, ie a capacity of 6,500 people. The Historic Grand Prix is reserved for residents, employees and customers of hotels across the country.
Regarding PCR tests, government measures remain in effect. Residents, employees, schools and inhabitants of Var and A-.M are not obliged to carry out a PCR test to return to Monaco for a stay of less than 24 hours.
ALL VOLUNTEERS TESTED
All the volunteers and professionals of the Automobile Club de Monaco and its partners have also been tested in recent days at the Léo-Ferré space screening center, to ensure that the show will be held in a healthy environment.
A large-scale device supervised by Dr Robert Scarlot, chief medical officer of the ACM, who had already carried out a vast screening campaign in January to ensure the holding of the Monte-Carlo Rally.
Note also that the sale of alcohol and its consumption will be prohibited on public roads this weekend.
This scenario of a one-third gauge could be the norm during the Formula 1 E-Prix and Grand Prix, subject to the evolution of the health situation.
