First up, a secret meet up location in Four Marks
Our day started at a secret location in Four Marks, Hampshire with 24 cars and 33 people gathered in anticipation of a full and exciting F1 themed day.
Breakfast at The Departure Lounge
Once we had all gathered at the meeting point, we set off in convoy to the Departure Lounge (near Basinsgtoke) for breakfast. The club had prior arranged reserved super car parking for us all so the cars were all safe. They certainly gathered attention from the other cafe users!
Once breakfast had concluded, we set off for a super convoy into central London. After we picked a few additional cars at the Hogs Back Hotel, we arrived at our secret London location; Joe Macari Performance Cars in Wandsworth around mid day to again, supercar reserved parking.
Joe Macari Performance Cars
Franco and his team were on hand to welcome us to the car collection and our reserved hospitality area.
The showroom was home to around £50,000,000 worth of cars with one Ferrari being £15,000,000 on its own! An ex Chris Evans Ferrari California.
The 90th Anniversary Monaco Grand Prix
After looking around this incredible car collection, we had a galleried hospitality VIP area exclusively booked to kick back and watch the jewel in the F1 crown: The grand prix at Monte Carlo in Monaco, which celebrated its 90th year, on a giant diamond screen.
The race was go, go, go at 14.10 and all eyes were on corner number one, where there was the usual chaos!
