Get a taste for high-octane fun at Monaco's Grand Prix, writes MICHAEL FERRANTE.
A taste of the life of the rich and famous on a yacht. The history, atmosphere and sights of Monaco. Being trackside at one of the premier sporting events in the world. They are all part of our exclusive Travel Club Tour to next year’s Monaco Formula One Grand Prix.
West Travel Club has partnered with MTA Travel and F1 Experiences for a one-off, all-inclusive package. It includes access to areas and experiences you can’t buy anywhere else, and is priced at a special, earlybird rate that includes many extras.
If you’re a Formula One fan, there’s plenty to look forward to during the 2020 season. Can Perth’s Daniel Ricciardo turn around his fortunes after a tough start at Renault? Which team will challenge the dominance of Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes? What will the future hold for Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, and will Ricciardo be tempted to switch to the Prancing Horse team if he’s courted?
Then there’s the excitement and flair of Monaco at grand prix time, and some memorable experiences on and off the famous street circuit track. Guests might meet a F1 legend or driver, and there’s VIP hospitality including a premium open bar and gourmet food on a trackside tri-deck yacht and all the action from prime vantage points.
You don’t even have to be a diehard F1 fan. Monaco is a fascinating place to visit, with the Monte Carlo Casino (and the Ferraris and Lamborghinis parked out the front), and the mountainside where Prince Rainier III’s private collection of antique cars is kept.
Hosted by myself, the tour includes return flights, six nights’ accommodation in Nice, a three-day race ticket, a bonus tour of Monaco with lunch at a local restaurant, and more.
But this special offer is only available to book until August 26 and exclusive to West Travel Club members (it’s free to become a registered member, of course).
It is $10,895 per person, twin share, for the trip in late May, 2020 (dates to be confirmed)Single-room pricing is available. For full details, see here.
