The first event open to the public at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza will be the 6 Hours of Monza of the FIA World Endurance Championship. The Italian leg of the WEC championship will be held in Monza from 16 to 18 July 2021.
The appointment in the Temple of Speed will be the third round of the six races foreseen in the series and it is an important news on the calendar because the World Endurance Championship runs a race in Monza for the first time in its history, after the official Prologue tests. of April 2017.
Thirty-eight cars competing will compete in their respective classes for a six-hour period, which this year presents a very important novelty: the introduction of a new category. On the fast Monza track, the five Hypercar cars, which replaced the previous LMP1 premier class, will in fact be able to express their full potential.
Twelve LMP2s, four LMGTE Pros and seventeen LMGTE Ams will also be on the track, with eleven Ferraris in the latter two categories. Another novelty concerns the format of the qualifying on Saturday because it will always be considered as the fastest lap no longer the sum of the times of the two best drivers but the fastest time completed by one of the team’s drivers.
