Happily our feet have barely touched the ground since the beginning of May. We had five tours starting with the Grand Prix de Pau Historique, this is an event that just gets better and better. See http://tinyurl.com/cr6ffuo for some photos of the event.
It was then onto the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique for the glitz and the glamour of the Cote d’Azur. This event happens every two years which quite frankly is too long to wait, top cars, the most beautiful setting and an atmosphere that is quite unique. See http://tinyurl.com/c4ebkkg for a selection of pictures.
From Monaco we travelled in to Italy to meet the Emblem Sportscars tour at Bologna for their exclusive Factory tour of Modena, Maranello and the surrounding areas. Highlights included factory tours of Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini and Pagani as well as some of the finest private collections in the area. We of course did not exclude the excellent regional gastronomy. See http://tinyurl.com/cn9zs43 for a flavour of this tour.
Meanwhile our Mille Miglia tour was underway with Maserati Club taking part this year. This is one of our longer tours at 10 nights long, staying at some fantastic hotels along the way. Having operated this tour for over 10 years the itinerary has been fine tuned and we see the Mille Miglia competitors come through at various points along their way.
The final weekend in May saw the second edition of the Spa Classic, superb weather, superb cars and some fine Belgian gastronomy makes for a lovely long weekend event. See http://tinyurl.com/chfadvv for some images.
We had some time in June to catch up and prepare for the Le Mans Classic. We did make time to exhibit at the Brooklands Double Twelve event http://www.brooklandsmuseum.com/index.php?/double12/. This was a superb event and we were very pleased to be sponsors of it. We took a Blower Bentley and Type 35 B Bugatti to draw the crowds. See http://tinyurl.com/cfqhozh for some pictures. We also met artist extrordinaire Clint Eley see www.clinteley.com who produces wonderfully detailed photographs laid up on metal to give fantastic depth to his portraits.
