1928 Grand Prix season
|1928 Grand Prix season|
The World Manufacturers' Championship was planned on seven races but five of them (France, Germany, Spain, Belgium and Great Britain) were cancelled. Moreover, three races were considered mandatory but, when only two Grands Prix remained, the championship was cancelled.
This event brought to evidence the need for better safety measures at the Italian circuit. The following two seasons the Italian Grand Prix wasn't held, while the Monza circuit underwent a complete upgrade.
