One hundred years lived at high speed, between last-second challenges, triumphs and emotions: the Monza racetrack blows out 100 candles in 2022, and the celebrations for such an important milestone began with the world premiere presentation in Dubai of the new logo, a tricolor tribute to the “Temple of Speed”.

The occasion was the ‘Beauty of Sport, Italian Sports Day’ event, the day dedicated to Italian sport organized by Coni at the Italy stand of Expo 2020 Dubai: the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Luigi Di Maio, was also present together with the president of Coni Giovanni Malagò and Stefano Domenicali, head of Formula 1. A lot of attention was paid to the logo, designed to make the track the real protagonist: the tricolor temple (and the tricolor), was represented through a sinuous ribbon that crosses the word “Monza” and the number 100.

“We wanted to give a graphic interpretation to the circuit, making the track a three-dimensional icon. The green track, its red exterior together with the white of its interior create the sensation of the tricolor, ”said Ludovico Fois of the Automobile Club of Italy.

2022 is a year of events and celebrations
The celebrations for the hundred years of the Monza racetrack were then discussed in a special panel, in which the president Giuseppe Radaelli also explained that “in the coming years there are many projects capable of bringing the Monza racetrack to a new epoch for mobility and motor sports; reliving its glorious history, as on the occasion in Dubai, is a great stimulus for the future “.

From Juan Manuel Fangio and Alberto Ascari to Michael Schumacher, from Enzo Ferrari, Niki Lauda and Ayrton Senna to Lewis Hamilton, many drivers who have plowed the Monza circuit from 3 September 2022 to today. In 100 years, many transformations have been faced, from the track to technology to the rules, but nothing of the essence of the racetrack has been lost. And the centenary falls in a particularly significant year, as remembered by the president of the Automobile Club of Italy, Angelo Sticchi Damiani.

“The Monza racetrack and Italian motorsport are increasingly protagonists in the world, with two stages of the Formula 1 championship and two stages of the World Rally Championship. Monza will continue to be a leading track for many disciplines of the motorsport of the future”.

In fact, 2022 will be a special year for Formula 1 in Italy: in addition to the centenary of the Monza circuit, Imola will host the second grand prix of Italy: “All over the world, when you think of Formula 1 you cannot fail to remember the great contribution that Italy has given to this sport, and the first 100 years of the Monza circuit are an important testimony – said Domenicali – Monza is special, Monza is home to Formula 1, it has always written among the most important of this sport that for 71 years has given emotions, passion and a smile. We are preparing to enter a new era for F1, with new regulations and new cars that will create even more exciting races and we are thrilled to have Italy once again a great protagonist in the official calendar of 2022 with two stages in Imola and Monza ” .
