Credit Suisse Celebrates Successful 2012 GP De Monaco Historique  The historic racing community bid farewell to a thrilling weekend of action on the streets of Monaco as the 8th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique came to a close on Sunday evening.

In a weekend that saw some captivating motor racing on the world's most famous street circuit, Credit Suisse once again played host to racing drivers, VIPs and media at the Swiss chalet-themed Credit Suisse Drivers Club throughout the weekend. The Drivers Club offered all its guests a 'piece of Switzerland' featuring natural wood throughout, mountain views, Swiss cowbells and even an original cuckoo clock.

A central feature of the weekend was the 1st Credit Suisse Historic Racing Forum. In front of a capacity audience, the Forum kick-started the weekend as former F1 drivers Jochen Mass and Emanuele Pirro joined historic racers Alain de Cadenet and Duncan Dayton to debate: 'Is historic racing better than Formula 1?' Following this, the panelists then took part in a uniquely Swiss 'Alphorn' photo opportunity.

The Credit Suisse Drivers Club was also the scene of the Opening Party, welcoming friends of Credit Suisse to enjoy a glass of Moët & Chandon to mark the official start of the weekend's proceedings and the Spring Rally Monaco Classics that was also taking place.

Karsten Le Blanc, Managing Director, Credit Suisse Private Banking Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa, states: 'The Credit Suisse Drivers Club once again proved to be a real hub for not only our Credit Suisse friends, but media and racers too. We were delighted to host such a fascinating Forum on Friday morning – it was an absolute pleasure to have such a high caliber of panelists join us for what proved to be a very entertaining 60 minutes. As for the action, and as an amateur racer myself, I believe the standard this weekend was outstanding, and we were lucky to be able to witness so many hard-fought victories, including one by our very own Forum panelist Duncan Dayton in the Serie E race on Sunday afternoon. We are already very much looking forward to 2014.'

On track, historic racing enthusiasts were treated to a feast of exhilarating action as cars from a pre-1952 class right up to the pre-1985 class took to the track in front of large crowds. For a full list of results, see below.

 8th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique
The annual Monaco Grand Prix Formula One event, held on the Circuit de Monaco, began in 1929 and has become one of the most prestigious automobile races in the world. The narrow streets of Monaco serve as the temporary 2.075 mile track, featuring tight corners, elevation changes, and even a tunnel. Today, drivers still navigate the uphill climb to Casino Square, before turning down to Mirabeau and the Loews Hairpin, before entering the famous tunnel that runs into the harbor-side chicane, a notorious spot for accidents. From there, drivers sprint past many of the harbor's large yachts toward L....
