GPX Historic will bring 11 F1s to Monaco while awaiting the Tour Auto and Goodwood!
While GPX Racing has made a scintillating start to the season with three victories in five outings for its Gulf-liveried Porsches, another branch of GP Extreme is making preparations to take part in three major events on the international calendar of historic car races. Before criss-crossing the roads of France in the Tour Auto and reliving the Goodwood Revival, the team will bring 11 Formula 1 single-seaters to the start of the Monaco Historic Grand Prix.
GPX Historic’s activities revolving around exceptional historic cars and historic racing cars range from storage to restoration, preparation for racing as well as operating the cars at the event itself. GPX Historic employs technicians at its European base to carry out its missions all of whom have a wide-ranging culture of motor sport and its heritage.
Bastien Leguay, who joined GP Extreme in 2019, is now in charge of the development of GPX Historic. “We’re preparing to live an intense season with a programme of three really great events on the road and on track, in speed and regularity and from the town to the countryside. However, our most extreme operation, because of its size and evocative powers, will bring us to the Principality of Monaco where we’re running eleven Formula 1 cars in two series according to the year in which they were built between 1974 and 1980. Then from 30th August to 4th September we’ll be taking part in the Tour Auto with a 1965 2-litre Porsche 911. Two weeks later, GPX Historic will bathe in the incomparably vintage atmosphere of the Goodwood Revival. The choice of the cars we’ll enter will depend on the fields on offer by the organizers.”
Here’s a look at the GPX Historic entry for the 12th Historic Grand Prix of Monaco three years after the team’s first outing in the Principality crowned by their first podium finish!
