The 2014 Monaco Grand Prix Historique in pictures

Last weekend, the ninth edition of the biennial Monaco Grand Prix Historique took place on the legendary Monte Carlo street circuit, harking back to bygone battles in the most prestigious Grand Prix event…

With the action divided into seven categories – from pre-1939 Voiturettes to 1970s Formula 1 cars – each was a portal back to the golden days of top-flight motor racing, before DRS and KERS took the place of old-school bravado and the odd pit-lane cigarette.

With seasoned racers such as Alex Buncombe dicing with less-experienced gentleman drivers, the on-track action was intensified further by the non-existent error margins of the famous circuit. Add to that demonstration laps from Prost and Jabouille in 1980s turbocharged Renault F1 cars, plus Jacky Ickx in a 1939 Auto Union Type C, and the stage was set for a memorable weekend.

Our talented French photographer Cathy Dubuisson captured the highlights in the stunning gallery above; so sit back, and drink in the beauty of legendary machines being threaded through the tight turns of the world’s most glamorous circuit.
