Arrival in Monaco

2640 16
Hey guys, just have a question.

I was in London saturday, watched the start, was amazing.

Therefore i decided to go to Monaco on friday to watch the finish. Apparently they are supposed to start arriving at 1800, is this a realistic goal, or are cars likely to arrive much later or earlier? Just trying to get an idea of when to head out, Monaco is a mess usually in summer anyway, and with the grand prix it gets even worse...

Also, is anybody else from here gonna be there?? Might be interesting to meet up with a few people, see if we can get any closer to the cars...

Salut est-ce que tu pourrais prendre des fotos et les poster ici stp ?
En ce qui concerne quand ils seront à Monaco, je n'en ai aucune idée à part ce que disent les horaires officiels (18:00 - 22:00).
J'espère que tu rencontreras les participants et que tu monteras dans quelques voitures !!
Vive la France,

I'll see what I can do, left digital camera in germany, might get new one or otherwise take normal pics and have them developed onto cd so i can post them.

Haha, beer should be around €6 for a pint. Thats what it costs in cannes, should be roughly the same in monaco, not as cheap as the UK though. What are you driving down?

We are driving down in my friends Peugeot 306 Rallye but it's top speed is only 140mph :sad3:

I think we will be sensible and not try to get police attention but we must hurry to get there in time for the Gumball finish! :wroom:
Good luck getting into Monaco btw, and then finding a parking space... you ever been there before around this time?

Yeah the trains have a special timetable (and ticket) for the monaco grand prix, i take the train every year, going to the training on thursday. The train is the only way to go, it takes a little under 30 mins from Nice. The monaco station is also very impressive...

Hope the weather is good! What is the forecast?
Weather was horrible yesterday, sunny in cannes now. Should be good in monaco tomorrow, and the weekend i dont know yet, its difficult to forecast here.

You can have a look on the website www.meteo.fr although they say we are supposed to be having thunderstorms now...
