Ed. The Automobile Club de Monaco or “ACM” is best known for organising the Monaco Grand Prix and the Monte Carlo Rally. It also organises other races such as the Monte Carlo Historic Rally and the Monte Carlo Alternative Energy Rally.
Founded in 1890 as a cyclist association, the club started welcoming motorists in 1907. The club stopped organising cycling races after the First World War and was renamed the “Automobile Club de Monaco” in 1925.
The Monaco Grand Prix was part of the European Championship in the 1930s and was included in the first Formula 1 World Championship of Drivers in 1950. The Grand Prix has taken place without interruption since 1955, and despite some minor tweaks over the years, it still basically follows the same circuit as the inaugural route used in 1929.
