Monza Banking Saved?

Sharknose BankingI haven’t been able to confirm this anywhere online – which is surprising given the number of ‘Save the Banking‘ sites and petitions that exist online – but Vintage Racecar Journal reports in their March issue that a deal has been struck between Monza’s ruling body the SIAS and the Monza city council that will guarantee the survival of the Monza banking. According to the article, the deal stipulates that the raised sections of the autodrome must be rebuilt within 5 years; not just preserving them, but restoring the banking to it’s former glory. Will we see race action on the banking again?

I sure hope so.

    Sure hope it works. The circuit sits within a large public park along the south side of the old main road from Milan to points east, and a drive and a wedge from Monza Cathedral. I picknicked there in 1968 and was able to drive part of the circuit, but not the banking, which was still in good shape (well, evidently it was always bumpy). Mike Jacobsen
