1929 Monaco Grand Prix

The 1929 Monaco Grand Prix was the first Grand Prix to be run in the Principality. It was set up by wealthy cigarette manufacturer, Antony Nogh猫s, who had set up the Automobile Club de Monaco with some of his friends. This offer of a Grand Prix was supported by Prince Louis II, and the Mon茅gasque driver of that time, Louis Chiron. On 14 April 1929, their plan became reality, when 16 invited participants turned out to race for a prize of 100,000 French francs.

There were no qualifying heats, instead grid positions were drawn by a ballot. Philippe 脡tancelin drew pole position, while main rival Rudolf Caracciola started 15th.
