I came across this event on the Financial Times website www.ft.com (probably while researching how the Williams-F1 share price was doing). It is an exclusive event running between 23 – 27 May; an invitation-only race to Monaco using supercars.
Damon Hill (ex-Formula 1 driver) has been lined up to participate in the event called THE RUN TO…. http://www.therunto.com/. He will be leading a fleet of luxury supercars from London, through France and ending at the Monaco Grand Prix 2012 (read FT article in full here).
It is an interesting idea; not unlike many of the challenges dreamt up by the BBC TopGear team. But hopefully this challenge can be completed without any atrocities against luxury cars.
