As our excitement builds over this year’s Sunseeker Supercar Tour and FOUR collaboration, we can’t wait to catch up with what is going on over in France as the cars head down to the Monaco yacht show. We spoke to ExclusiveGP DirectorCharlotte Hill to find out highlights from the tour so far…
We commenced the tour in stunning Cowarth Park with a Champagne reception followed by a welcome dinner, the pouring rain outside didn’t dampen anyone’s mood as we discussed our exciting journey down to Monaco and the plans ahead whilst enjoying the incredible food on offer.
We’re off! Making our way to the Channel Tunnel we embark on our trip to the Monaco Yacht Show, driving down through the Garden of England and then through the french countryside to Chateau de Beaulieu with a spot of Michelin Star dining for lunch, we meander through France down to Reims where we arrive at the beautiful 5* Hotel Champenoise.
After an hour or two of relaxing we head to Veuve Cliquot where we are treated to the most fantastic champagne tour learning about the history of Madame Cliquot and guided around the Creyeres with afascinating insight how the Champagne is made, we then enjoy the most fantastic canapés and fine dining whilst our guide explains the varieties of Veuve Cliquot available and how different foods compliment the different Champagnes. It was the most incredible evening with the whole group chatting and enjoying the delights of what the Champagne Region has to offer.
FOUR also caught up with veteran of the Exclusive GP Supercar Tours, Candace Elliott, to find out what the tour has been like so far for all those in the driving seats…
