The Monza Racetrack, universally known as the Temple of Speed, is a key location for motorsports.
It is nestled in Monza Park, which in turn is part of the Villa Reale complex.
As a priceless, natural jewel, which has nothing to envy from the more famous palaces of Versailles and Caserta, it should be discovered and explored. This is why Monza National Racetrack has been committed to the environmental protection of the park for years.
Since its construction, Monza National Racetrack has been managed by Autodromo Nazionale Monza Società Incremento Automobilismo e Sport SIAS S.p.A., a company affiliated with Automobile Club d'Italia.
SIAS was founded with the broad involvement of corporations, banks, industries and sportsmen. Currently, the shareholders are Automobile Club d'Italia (90%) and Automobile Club Milano (10%).
From 1922 to the present day, the Monza National Racetrack circuit has seen many transformations that have led to its current layout.
Also known as the High Speed Ring or Catino di Monza, the Sopraelevata (flyover) was built in 1955, at a time when there was a strong need to push cars towards ever higher performance.
The Formula 1 all-time speed record was set at Monza in 2005 by Kimi Räikkönen in a McLaren at 370.1 km/h
