After breakfast stroll down to the garage at the hotel and there is a fleet of Mini Coopers waiting. Today, it’s the chance to recreate one of the most memorable epics in motor racing history. It’s 1964 and the tiny Mini Cooper arrives to challenge the world’s best on the tough and challenging Monte Carlo Rally. At the end of the event ‘David’ had triumphed with Paddy Hopkirk winning against the odds and the legend of the Cooper was born. Today, you will be driving brand new Mini Coopers equipped with GPS. With a route out into the Alps you will be tacking some of the stages that still make up this classic event such as the hairpins of the Col Turini and the run into Sospel and Bollene – some of the greatest roads in Europe. Sweeping round the bends and the exhaust note snarling and echoing off the rock faces as you drop down a gear and sprint to the next hairpin. Kilometre after kilometre of fantastic driving….On the return to the Principality there will be time for a lap of the GP circuit before arriving back at the hotel and a quick spot of lunch. However this remarkable day is only half-way through.
A short stroll from the hotel will take you down to the Monaco harbour entrance where you will met by your personal skipper for the day of your 50 foot, 1000 hp powerboat who will walk you down to the harbour. As you stroll through the marina take in the incredible array of millionaire’s gin palaces on display before climbing aboard your boat and casting off....You will truly be living the playboy lifestyle….
For the rest of the day the skipper will take you where you want to go. With exclusive charter of the yacht for a full day the Mediterranean is your oyster. This is a million dollar craft with superb finish and engines producing over 1000 hp. Perhaps enjoy a glass of champagne as you recline on the sundeck…..The skipper will take you where you want to go and will also advise on what will be the best options. With a top speed of 60 mph you could blast along the coast at full bore before stopping off at a quiet bay for diving or swimming. Head towards Portofino; to Cannes or simply see and be seen by mooring up in picturesque Villefranche for a well deserved drink before returning to Monaco in the early evening. Everyone will be able to take their turn at the wheel (and the throttles....)
An unforgettable day.
