Monza Grand Prix





Monza Grand Prix, September 6, 1931

This event was staged in a series of heats on the Monza Speedway, near Milan. In all forty-nine machines were competing, and were thinned out in the heats until only eight cars were left in the final. These machines were probably the finest racing cars ever built, and a terrific race resulted in Fagioli taking the Maserati to the winner's flat at a speed of 96.6 m.p.h. Borzacchini was second on an Alfa Romeo, only seventy-five seconds behind, and Achille Varzi was third on a Bugatti, arriving two minutes later.
