Since the dawn of time, glitz, glamour and celebrity have a played a vital part in sporting events across the globe; from gladiators battling to win the favour of Roman royalty, to ancient Egyptian chariot racing and medieval jousting between kings and men. However, none come close to the most dangerous and glamorous high-speed challenge found on four wheels. The trackside luxury of Formula One™ has been attracting the world's elite since its inaugural 1950's championship. In fact, Formula One™ is now synonymous with movie stars, fashion houses and unrivalled sporting sophistication, together with the highest level of VIP hospitality at its heart.

The Monaco Grand Prix

If you're looking for high-octane luxury, Monaco embraces it more than anywhere else. With a population of 35,000 and year-round sunshine, it’s the second smallest country on the planet and already home to many of the world's elite. But the tight corners, narrow straights and French Riviera backdrop are just one part of the story.  During the Grand Prix, Monaco's population swells to 90,000 action-hungry fans, creating an almost tangible atmosphere. So naturally, Red Eye offers luxurious packages, including exclusive accommodation at Monaco's leading hotels along with unrivalled hospitality on our trackside terraces or on board our VIP harbourside super yacht, offering unbeatable views, gourmet cuisine and bottomless Champagne. In addition, Red Eye has a strong affiliation with the Formula One Paddock Club™ and Red Bull Paddock Club™; ensuring every Red Eye guest experiences all that Monaco has to offer.

"Ask any driver which race they'd like to win most, they will say Monaco, it's so special. You're so close to the people. I remember racing down there myself and a very pretty girl was standing there outside Ali Baba's and I blew her a kiss." - Stirling Moss
