Next month’s round three of the FIA World Endurance Championship, the 6 Hours of Monza, is set to welcome a limited number of spectators.

Built in 1922, the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, known as the temple of speed, staged the FIA WEC Prologue in 2017, but this year marks the first time that the venue hosts a round of the world’s premier endurance racing series.

A total of 38 cars will battle it out in across four classes in the event held from July 16 – 18.

The event will be the first at Monza this year to be opened to a limited number of spectators. The circuit will welcome spectators on Sunday 18 July, appropriately spaced and on the right grandstand on the main straight.

The seats will be assigned at the time of the ticket purchase. Together with the tickets, parking spaces within the circuit will also be provided.

The tickets will be available only online and, until Wednesday 30 June, will be on sale at a discounted price at monzanet.it and ticketone.it.

Currently, the entry is at €60, with free admission for children up to six years of age and at €1 for those between the ages of seven and 11. The price for those aged between 12 and 17 as well as for people the over 75 is at €30.

It will be necessary to complete a check-in procedure that will allow tracking of the spectators.

In case of a government-enforced cancellation or another event held behind closed doors, all purchased tickets will be refunded. Any updates on this matter will be communicated on monzanet.it

Frédéric Lequien, FIA WEC CEO, said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to welcome some of our loyal fans back to the WEC. I would like to thank everyone at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza and the Italian authorities for making this possible. I’d also like to thank our fans for their patience and continued support.”

Richard Mille, FIA Endurance Commission President, said: “It’s been a while since fans could attend a round of the FIA World Endurance Championship and I’m very much looking forward to seeing their presence at the grandstands at Monza. Owing to the decision of the government, as well as the efforts of the organisers and the promoter this will all be possible in safe conditions.”
