6H Monza welcomes limited capacity of fans for the first time since Le Mans

The FIA World Endurance Championship is welcoming a limited number of fans at the 6 Hours of Monza in four weeks time on July 18.

For the first time since a limited capacity was allowed at last year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, members of the local public will be able to attend their first race in Season 9 and the Hypercar era.

Round 3 of the 2021 schedule will take place at Monza, a venue which the WEC has yet to host an official race instead making their pre-season Prologue testing appearance in 2017.

The attending fans will situate themselves on the right grandstand of the start/finish straight.

FIA WEC CEO Frédéric Lequien said in a statement: “We are extremely pleased to be able to welcome some of our loyal fans back to the WEC.

“I would like to thank everyone at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza and the Italian authorities for making this possible.

“I’d also like to thank our fans for their patience and continued support.”

Tickets will be discounted until June 30 via the www.monzanet.it and www.ticketone.it websites.

The entry will cost €60, free for children up to the age of six, and €1 for those between seven and 11-years-old.

Those aged between 12 and 17 plus the over 75s will be charged 30 euros, but these prices will rise from July 1.

As per protocol, the usual COVID-19 restrictions and regulations will be in place as all fans will complete a check-in procedure when they arrive at the event and abide to being spaced out.

The 6 Hours of Monza is set to bring the largest FIA WEC grid since the 2012 season as Glickenhaus Racing will bring both of their SCG 007 LMHs before the round afterwards, the 24 Hours of Le Mans on August 21/22.

The Tifosi will also witness AF Corse’s first WEC home race, both in Ferrari’s GTE-Pro works entries, and their GTE-Am efforts.
