125th anniversary of the Automobile Club de Monaco celebrated by Monaco Post

June 23rd, 2015

FindYourStampsValue.com is glad to inform that Monaco Post is ready to release a special stamp issue dedicated to 125th anniversary of the Automobile Club de Monaco. The philatelic release is scheduled to put into circulation on the 25th of June.

In 1890, fans of the bicycle established the Sport Vélocipédique Monégasque (Monaco Cycling Sporting Association), which became the Sport Automobile et Vélocipédique de Monaco (Monaco Automobile and Cycling Sporting Association) in 1907.

The association's current name, the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM), was adopted in 1925.

The Monte-Carlo Rally and the Formula 1 Grand Prix are the two flagship events organised by the ACM, which also runs the Historic Rally, the Historic Grand Prix, the Zenn Rally, the Rally for New Energy Vehicles and, starting this year, the Monaco ePrix.
