1000 km Monza

The 1000 - km race at Monza is a long-range sports cars race at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza in Italy.

The event

In 1963 the first 3- hour race was conducted, which was one of the World Sportscar Championship. Since 1965, the distance is 1000 km, as in the 1000 km Nürburgring 1000 km race at Spa- Francorchamps. The race on the very fast 10 - km version with steep curves were adjusted after 1969. From 1989, new rules reduced the distances, for example, 480 km before the sports car races were set. Since 1997, the classic 1000 km was added to the program several times. Since 2004, the event is now firmly in the Le Mans Series program. The originally planned for September 24, 2006 Monza race had to be canceled for the season start since the course through a citizens' initiative a noise restriction was imposed.
