1962 Monaco Grand Prix

Famous car racing shot on 70mm film for the Mediterranean Holiday documentary. In 2017, the recording was restored and converted for viewing in 4K, using color correction and sound enhancement.

The race itself consisted of 100 laps on the Monte-Carlo circuit. Of the 16 riders who started, only 8 were able to complete the race. The rest of the participants got off because of accidents or car breakdowns, and three of them finished the race without having managed to drive even one lap.

The winner of the race was congratulated by a well-known actress and princess Monaco Grace Kelly (in the video from 6:21).
