2018 Monaco F1 Grand Prix Alain Llorca Package


About the Monaco F1 Grand Prix package

The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the world’s greatest motor-racing events.  Staged around the narrow, winding streets of Monte Carlo, the main attraction of the Monaco Grand Prix is the close proximity of the cars to the spectators.  The twisting 77-lap circuit offers incalculable opportunities for spectators to witness the thrill of screaming engines, smoking tyres and the genius of the drivers.  The Monaco Grand Prix is not only about the race through the streets.  It is also about the harbour, the yachts, the surrounding hills and the breathtaking views of the port and all the glamour that goes with it.

Our Monaco F1 Grand Prix holiday packages are the ultimate in style and quality.  A four night break in the hills of St-Paul-de-Vence, overlooking the sparkling Cote d’Azur.  Our special hotels with beautiful pools, terraces and stunning Mediterranean views are just outside the medieval town.

Our stunning packages include amazing grandstand tickets, welcome reception party, Friday visit to the stylish resort of Cannes and its famous film festival followed by an unforgettable Monaco pit lane tour later in the afternoon.

What you’ve said

Well, where do I begin?...  I guess the truth is, that I’m still on a HIGH from an ABSOLUTELY, FANTASTICALLY, AMAZING TIME!...  I LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT!

It was a surprise Birthday Prezzie from my Hubby!  And when he told me about it, I was thrilled.  He directed me to the Motoexpress website and I was looking at the pics, but had slight reservations, because I was not involved in the booking, so had no control or what to fully expect.  It didn’t dampen my enthusiasm however, and the website went some way to keeping my focus, as I counted down the weeks, days, hours etc!

I would HIGHLY recommend this trip!  I found John and Linda to pleasant, down-to-earth, yet professional in their approach.  I’m not really one for package holidays, but I found this a positive experience, because the Group were all friendly F1 enthusiasts, and even though some of us were fans of opposing teams, there was a mutual respect and great comradely.  I’m an UNAPOLOGETIC LEWIS HAMILTON FAN!  But I acknowledge the skillset of Alonso & Schumacher….(by those names I guess you can tell the type of driving that I like – Hardcore, Dynamically fast!) I've been to the British Grand Prix 3 Times and loved the atmosphere!

Anyway, the trip to Cannes was great, then the next day onto Monaco for Practice & Qualifying.  We had great seats right opposite the World Famous Monte Carlo Casino.  Hubby & I were intrigued to see what it would look like, because we had stayed in Monaco for a week last Sept, so the transformation was amazing.

On Race Day John & Linda saved the best till last!!!  Our seats were right opposite the Marina, AWESOME!

The Hotel was pleasant, was booked Exclusively for our group, which was brilliant.  It was situated in a lovely location, with the local enchanting Historical village of Saint-Paul just 10 mins away, so you can pick which Restaurants to dine at.  We Loved EVERY restaurant that we visited, and found the people to be SO friendly!  (mind you, I'm quite friendly!)

We extended our stay after the grand prix weekend, so that we could relax and take in the Beautiful scenic landscape, exploring the village & making friends in the process.

ANYWAY IN CONCLUSION – we enjoyed the experience so much, we have BOOKED for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in Nov later this year for Hubby’s 50th...  I CAN’T WAIT!!!  (It's my 50th next year, but Hubby has booked a trip to the Caribbean for me)...  On reflection, Next Year's Monaco Grand Prix would have been good 50th Prezzie!  but I'm grateful for the wonderful experience I had this year!

Catherine Morgan

Just to say thanks for a superb weekend.  Every thing was done very professionally.  If you are ever in South Africa please contact us.

Colin & Lynn Coetzee

We both wanted to let you know that as our first experience with a group event, we truly enjoyed the Monaco Race.  The hotel, tickets, and fellow fans were all terrific.  A real class event!  We would also be interested in joining you again next year - especially for the Italian Grand Prix.  Please let us know when and if you are running that trip for 2014.

Kenneth & Lynn Field

Just a quick message to thank you and Linda for an excellent Momaco Grand Prix it was everything I hoped for.  The organisation was excellent, the Hotel charming and the seating was better than we had imagined.  As you probably realised my husband is a passionate follower of motor racing so my choosing your Company to arrange his 70th birthday gift was a really good choice.  We hope that in future we will book another trip with your Company as if it's as good as Monaco it will take some beating.

John & Christine Crowson

Wanted to let you know we had a fabulous time at Monaco

Tina & Kevin, Birmingham, UK

We've been home for several days now and we've both taken the time to reflect on the wonderful time we had over the Monaco Grand Prix weekend.  The accommodations at Les Messugues were first class and your attention to detail in planning for the race festivities is unmatched anywhere.  We couldn't be more pleased that you were able to include us after our last minute request.  Our expectations were high, based on our MotoGP trip to Mugello with you three years ago, and you surpassed them.  We both look forward to making another trip with you after we get through our building project, which will probably take a year or more.  Again, many thanks to you both for providing us with such a great experience.  We hope that the remainder of your race season is successful and enjoyable.  Have a lovely weekend.
