European Grand Prix

The European Grand Prix (sometimes referred to as the Grand Prix of Europe) was a Formula One event that was reintroduced during the mid-1980s and has been held regularly from 1999 until 2012. The most recent host venue for this event was Valencia, Spain, hosting the race from 2008 until 2012.

In earlier years, the European Grand Prix was not a race in its own right but just a honorific title; one of the national Grands Prix was also designated as the European Grand Prix. The first race to be so named was the 1923 Italian Grand Prix, held at Monza and won by Carlo Salamano in a Fiat and the last one was the 1977 British Grand Prix. Since its reintroduction, the European Grand Prix is usually held in a country that also holds a national Grand Prix in that same year.

Famous quotes containing the words european and/or grand:

    If Germany, thanks to Hitler and his successors, were to enslave the European nations and destroy most of the treasures of their past, future historians would certainly pronounce that she had civilized Europe.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    There aren’t any good, brave causes left. If the big bang does come, and we all get killed off, it won’t be in aid of the old-fashioned grand design. It’ll just be for the Brave New-nothing-very-much-thank-you. About as pointless and inglorious as stepping in front of a bus. No, there’s nothing left for it, me boy, but to let yourself be butchered by the women.
    John Osborne (1929–1994)
