The first Susa-Moncenisio took place on 27th July 1902. It was the final event of the International Automobile Exhibition held in Turin.

For the time, it was a tangible sign of progress. The route was 22 km uphill, with a difference in altitude of over 1600 metres. The average gradient was twelve percent.

The last section had almost 50 tight hairpin turns called "tourniquet". The next edition was held in 1904.

Trade union struggles and the crisis in the automobile industry led to its suspension from 1906 to 1914. It was suppressed again during the Great War.

It returned regularly from 1920 to 1937. Three editions were won by Alfieri Maserati, founder of the Maserati car company.

Suspended during the Second World War, the race was organized again from 1949 to 1953.

Once again interrupted for many years, this race, defined by Enzo Ferrari as "La Regina della Montagna" (The Queen of the Mountain), has been held every year since 1986.

Publication, edited by the Veteran Car Club of Turin, on the occasion of the 1987 edition, celebrating the 85th anniversary of the competition.
