A NOTE OF HISTORY
The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the oldest and most prestigious races in the world.
Created in 1929 by Antony Noghès, the Monaco circuit, designed in the middle of the city, has maintained almost its entire original layout, a narrow and winding track, which makes it one of the most demanding circuits on the Formula 1 World Championship calendar.
The Monaco circuit is 3.367 km long.
The start is from the Port Hercule, then it winds through the streets of Monte Carlo and La Condamine, taking tight turns in the middle of guard rails: the track is narrow and demanding and makes overtaking difficult.
After the start line, the drivers go up the Boulevard Albert Ier and hurry through the first right-hand turn of "Sainte Dévote", the scene of many collisions in the first lap. They then start the very steep climb up "Beau-Rivage" to the very tight left-right of "Casino". From there, the drivers go down to the right turn of "Mirabeau", then comes the left hairpin "Grand Hotel", the slowest turn of the championship. The "Portier" section then leads to the sea and the drivers go through the tunnel that leads to the chicane near the port. At the exit of the tunnel, the fastest section of the circuit, the cars are approaching 300 km/h. After a short straight on the "Quai des États-Unis", comes the left turn of the "Bureau de Tabac", the left-right section of the "Piscine" and then a very difficult right hairpin at "La Rascasse". Finally, the drivers tackle the "Anthony Noghès" turn before the pit lane and the finish.
This is certainly one of the most demanding circuits on the Formula 1 World Championship calendar. It is the most glamorous, the most prestigious, the most popular and above all the one that every driver and every team wants to win !
A BEACH TOWEL OF EXCEPTION
The long looped Egyptian cotton sponge of our beach towels is printed "on table", with the with the "Lyon frame" technique, a technique based on the stencil technique. Each printing frame isolates the surfaces, the printing is thus carried out in several stages (one by different color).
For a perfect penetration of the colors into the fibers, we use five times the weight of the beach cloth in dye in its tank.
The fabric is then washed, dried and steamed to fix the colors.
Its box, its case, red, the color of Monaco, is made in the Principality of Monaco from FSC certified paper from responsibly managed forests.
The Grand Prix beach towel is part of the "Grand Prix" collection, an incredibly soft beach towel that illustrates in drawing a major event of the Principality of Monaco.
