 How the 1% Experience Monaco's Iconic Grand Prix

The 1% experience Monaco’s iconic Grand Prix (May 24-27) from drinking and dining over the track, to getting behind the wheel of an F1 racecar.

Exclusively offered through Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo’s “Just For You” programming, the Get Dizzy With Speed package offers the chance for inner speed demons to become a race car driver for the day. Put in the driver’s seat of a F1 race car, participants experience the white knuckle thrill of maneuvering the turns of the famed Circuit du Luc in Provence track. To ensure a safe and smooth ride, guests take a workshop led by a certified Formula 1 driver. The hotel’s goal was to offer clients the experience of driving a real F1 due to Monaco’s connection to race car driving with the Grand Prix. Since it isn’t possible to drive the Monaco track (which winds through the streets of Monaco), the Circuit du Luc track offers a more safe and secure environment to experience this adrenaline-pumping activity.

Located directly above the slowest (for optimal views!) and most dangerous turn on the storied racetrack, Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo provides travelers with an immersive Grand Prix experience. Highlights include:

  • Drive the Course: Hotel Metropole’s exclusive “Get Dizzy with Speed” experience puts guests in the driver’s seat of an F1 race car, where they zoom from 0 to 186 mph in less than three seconds at the Circuit du Luc track in Provence, after taking a workshop with a Formula 1 driver.

NEW Eco-Friendly Racing: Just launched, guests can now experience a drive with the Venturi Formula E racing team as a simulator pilot for the electrical equivalent of an F1, using the same simulator used by the Formula E drivers to train.

  • Dining with a View: Dine over the track at the outdoor terrace of Michelin-starred Restaurant Joël Robuchon, with dishes include royal spiny lobster and foie gras stuffed quail.
  • Revved Up Cocktails: Crafted for the race, the Monte-Carlo Racing cocktail is an adrenaline-pumping blend of saffron-infused Hennessy, kumquat syrup, fresh passion fruit, champagne and pepper.
  • Suite Ambassador: Signature Suite guests receive an on-call luxury concierge, welcoming them with amenities and treats (rare wines, special champagnes, etc.) and curating one-of-a-kind Grand Prix experiences (including in-room stylists so guests look their trackside best).
