The streets themselves are the Monaco Grand Prix's major attraction, thrilling spectators with an up-close view of screaming engines as racers take the twisting 78-lap circuit for all it's worth. Featuring a gritty street course through the narrow and winding streets of Monte Carlo, the Monaco Grand Prix provides the most challenging race in the annual Formula 1 circuit. The first Monaco Grand Prix was held on April 14, 1929. Since then, average race speeds have risen from 50 miles (80 kilometres) per hour to almost 90 (142 kilometres) per hour.
The Monaco Grand Prix is widely considered to be one of the most important and prestigious automobile races in the world alongside the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. These three races are considered to form a Triple Crown of the three most famous motor races in the world. Graham Hill is the only driver to have completed the Triple Crown, by winning all three races. The practice session for Monaco overlaps with that for the Indianapolis 500, and the races themselves sometimes clash. As the two races take place on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean and form part of different championships, it is difficult for one driver to compete effectively in both during his career.
