As we come up on the Monaco weekend, I came across a Formula E race there a weekend ago. I was wondering if they blocked off the streets for this, as they do for F1. Seemed odd that they may as the races were two weekends apart.

Lo and behold, Formula E used a SHORT course! Like Monaco is not short enough as it is.

The cars left the starting line and took a hard right just prior to Sainte Devote. They then took a street between Beau Rivarge and the street down by the harbor, not climbing the hill, and rejoined the circuit at the Nouvelle Chicane at the exit of the tunnel.

A right hand hairpin back on to the proper circuit, through Tabac, Swimming Pool, and La Rascasse, and back on the front stretch they were.

Interesting.

I am not a true fan of Formula E, but this is worth a look. Learn something every day. In this case, optional circuits. Some big names in the cars, too, including Felipe Massa. A nice option for top level drivers who cannot find other rides or do not have the $$$ backing.

I am also hoping the good looking babes were sunning themselves in the buff aboard the yachts in the harbor for this weekend, too.

We mustíve watched the same vision, Mike.
A good take with a contemporary class on a vintage circuit - it has to be Ďdifferent.í
