XIX Grand Prix of Monaco

What a race ! Monte Carlo, May 14th. With no races being held in the Argentine this year the Monaco GP was the first Grande Epreuve of the season and naturally everyone wanted to be in it but, as usual, the number of cars permitted to start on the narrow and twisting 3.145-km circuit was limited to sixteen.

Rand finale
