Monaco's streets hosts the best known Formula 1 Grand Prix and as well as
a sporting spectacle it is one of Europe's premier social highlights of the year,
with the best yachts in the world visiting the Principality and celebrities staying
in the Monaco hotels such as the Hotel de Paris, the Columbus and the Grand,
with many others staying in Nice.(...) The Grand Prix is 77 laps around the narrow,
winding streets of Monte Carlo, making the Monaco Grand Prix the most exciting
in the world, with little room for driver error.

You are welcome :flowers: And yes, it's a pity, it would have been such
an asset if more family members had joined in again, in such a case
more media interest is surely better for the event and the cause.

Here are some additional pics:

But Princess Stephanie did attend the event!

"Grand Prix de F1: c'est parti pour quatre jours de folie!"
(F1 Grand Prix - here we go for 4 days of madness.....)

Today is driver practice.....the hunt for autographs.....

Some young people complain about the high prices.... Watching the driver practice costs 70 euro .... they can't afford the race itself....

Yes, they hardly miss the event, so my guess it's that they will be there.

:flowers: it will be nice if the boys go however, in their age they are at, they tend to like to be more into peer activities however, PA and Stephanie and Caroline & ernest if one of them or all of them go it makes it a special event too.

Renata4711 05-22-2009 04:38 AM

Yesterday morning, 20,000 people arrived by the train from Nice, mainly for the Grand Prix.......the travellers can hear the "vroom" of the racing cars..... there is heightened security.... travelling without ticket costs you 35 euro......
