The Monaco Historic Grand Prix (also called the Historic Grand Prix of Monaco depending upon the source) is a series of automobile races focused on historic motorsport. The event is typically held two weeks before the annual Formula One Grand Prix of Monaco.

The first Monaco Historic Grand Prix was held in 1997, the second in 2000, and the event has been held every two years since.

The 2010 running of the event was the seventh in the series. It featured eight races total, in various historic motorcar categories:

  • Race A - Pre 1947 Voiturettes and Grand Prix cars
  • Race B - Front-engined Grand Prix cars (1947–1960)
  • Race C - Pre 1953 Sports cars
  • Race D - Formula 3, 1000 cc (1964–1970)
  • Race E - Rear-engined Grand Prix cars (1954–1965)
  • Race F - Formula 1 (1966–1974)
  • Race G - Formula 1 (1975–1978)
  • Race H - Formula 3, 1600 cc and 2000 cc (1971–1984)

By the 9th running of the event in 2014, the number of races had been reduced to 7, and there had been some tweaking of the categories, better to distribute the competition:

  • A : Pre-war "Voiturettes" and Grand Prix Cars (up to 1939)
  • B : F1 and F2 Grand Prix Cars (pre-1961)
  • C : Sports Cars (1952–1955)
  • D : F1 Grand Prix Cars (1961–1965)
  • E : F1 Grand Prix Cars (1966–1972)
  • F : F1 Grand Prix Cars (1973–1978)
  • G : Formula 3 Cars, 2000cc (1974–1978)
