I took my dad to monaco for his 50th a few years back, was a great road trip in my little punto GT. I drove most of the way there and he had a little go near the end of the journey, fell totally in love with the punto and wanted to drive most of the way back having a play with a lambo for a good stretch of the journey, both got pulled and fined by the french police at one stage.
was also the same time as a gumball rally so hundreds of amazing cars all around us the whole journey.
we had seats on the grandstand opposite the swimming pool, also opposite the pits, was a fantastic weekend.
I also did the british GP with some mates, stayed in a tent, had a great night the night before the race, got really drunk, woke up late and couldnt get anywhere near the track when we finally got over the road, had to climb up some scaffolding advertisment boards to see a bit of the race, then just sat on the hill and watched it on the big screen. At least we got to hear the noise..
