I’ve never attended an F1 event of any description, but when another RMS member floated the idea of going to the Monaco Grand Prix back in May of this year, I jumped at the chance. The reasoning was simple – go to the likes of the British GP at Silverstone, and the flights and travel culminate in a few hours of sitting around in a grandstand. There is little chance of getting up close to the teams, drivers or more importantly cars and kit, unless you buy an extortionately priced VIP type ticket (or can wangle one for free). Plus the weather could be horrendous. Enter Monaco.
