Friday 8th May | Arrival
Having flown into Nice we invite you to make your way to the Fairmont Hotel. You are welcome to arrive at the hotel after 15:00hrs. For drivers, the hotel can accommodate parking facilities which may be away from the property*.

In the evening we will start the weekend in style with a welcome dinner under the stars including a drinks reception and wines at a special terrace location with a 360-degree view of the Mediterranean and the mountains over to Italy. Along with some fine dining, there will be much fun and entertainment. This is an informal evening and a great opportunity to meet up with old friends and make some new ones.

Saturday 9th May | Qualifying day
This is qualifying day and we have arranged an exclusive vantage point from the rooftop of the famous Café de Paris based in Casino Square, Monaco. The Salon Bellevue room at the Café de Paris is exclusive to the Bentley Drivers Club and Classic Grand Touring clients. It is accessed by a lift from the ground floor and has all the usual exclusive cloakroom facilities.

The viewing is from two terraces, with comfortable seating and a private grandstand. Refreshments are available all day, and breakfast is included as well as a delicious buffet lunch with wines. We will be watching the qualifying from the best viewing position to see the skill and courage of the drivers as they charge their Historic Formula-1 cars through Casino Square. There are several different grids, starting with the 1924 Grand Prix cars, through to the 1970s F1 cars. The beauty and sound of these priceless cars is a feast for eye and ear.

This evening is free for you to explore and enjoy the ambience and excitement of Monaco. There are lots of fantastic restaurants and we advise walking to the marina and exploring some of the smaller back roads of Monaco. The event brings with it a bustling atmosphere even outside of the racing and we encourage you to soak it up. Restaurant recommendations will be provided with pleasure either by us in advance of the trip or by the hotel concierge service.

*Due to the nature of the event, cars once parked may be difficult to access and retrieve from car parks until the racing has ended.  The surrounding roads and driving routes to the hotel are part of the motor racing circuit which will be closed on Friday 8th May from 07:00 - 19:00hrs. Traffic outside of these hours can be exceptionally busy and therefore, we recommend arriving on Thursday 7th if you plan on driving to Monaco and parking at the hotel.
