Monaco GP weekend!

Well what can I say...Monte Carlo is off the scale!! Stayed in the Fairmont Hotel overlooking the hairpin bend. When arriving at the Hotel in reception a Russian Supercar was in the lobby and I think a few orders may have been placed that weekend! Well 1st night was the Billionaires Club...my god I know why it was called that! Think 25% of the worlds wealthy people were in Monaco that weekend! Hahaha there were hookers everywhere!! The club was nuts....the drink menu was even more nuts.....37,000 Euro's for a bottle of Cristal and there were quite a few of them being drunk too! Some guy ordered 50 bottles of Dom Perignon and they played the theme tune to Rocky as the bottles were being delivered to his table by a golf buggy! Surreal!

Now got quite a few hours where  things are a bit patchy but remember still rocking in the bar when the sun came up....again somehow found my room and got woken up after about 2 hours by Kenny banging hard on the door telling us to wake up as the F1 was warming up.

Woweeeeeeeeeee....the noise from the F1 was incredible...felt like I had wasps in my head. Went up to the roof terrace where we had the most amazing view of the cars going round the hairpin bend. There was a beautiful atmosphere that day too as we all knew we had another night there so we could properly let our hair down.  Later on went for a wonderful dinner with the guys from Titan TV and Ben Gott who was the Betsafe winner.....check out his tatoo on his arm...thats what you call dedication. Hahaha again saw the sun start too appear and escaped for again what must have been 2 hours sleep

Barcelona to Monaco

Woweeeee.....on the road again. Next stop Monaco. Today I drove with the Aston Martin 1 77, the F430, The fastest Range Rover ever and the Charming Baker Bentley......what a team

Great day of driving and stopped a lot to refuel due to the speeds we were going....the fuel was going down fast!! When we arrived in Monaco it was amazing to go through the tunnels.....the cars were singing to each other

When we actually hit Monte Carlo, WOW!! It was a really surreal experience driving on the track. Just being there was fantastic as there was such a buzz in the air as it was F1 weekend....time to party!

Barcelona….

I arrived in Barcelona and so far done 2 countries, 2 nights, 2 hours sleep....felt amazing though, just running on adrenaline. There was a huge crowd waiting in Barcelona. The W Hotel was just fabulous. What a beautiful Hotel, again quick change and time to party. It was David Guetta night. Ended up getting in a stretch Hummer with The Dudesons, Dirty Sanchez, Buttsy Butler and Shane Lynch.....

Got to the Sutton Club and it seriously went off in there.....we partied all night again and I ended up about 6am in some very random club in the backstreets of Barcelona but that is another story....

So, back to the Hotel around 7am and the lobby was littered with Gumball casualties....the party was going off in the lobby and bodies just dotted around on the chairs...the other guests of the Hotel were coming down to breakfast so eventually we all found our way back to our rooms. Think then I blinked and that was sleep and time to hit the road again!!!!

Paris to Barcelona

So now everything gets a bit sketchy......ended up strolling back into hotel around 5am wearing some French guys bright orange sunglasses. Think managed about 2 hours sleep and then we are off!! This was going to be one long drive and was supposed to be stopping of at the Circuit D'Albi as a checkpoint. The Sat Nav then decided it really didnt want to work so bypassed the track and headed straight to Barcelona. Drove with the Sheik....real good days driving with him and Steve in the Maserati. We did some fine speeds and the roads were amazing....we took a different route to a lot of the other Gumballer's, we didnt do the motorways, I was following the Sheik as he knew what he was doing....

Bonjour Paris or should that be bonsoir??

Well after a mad day of driving finally arrived in Paris...cannot believe I didnt see any cops as kept hearing stories of all the Gendarmes stopping other people...twitter kept me in the loop with what was going on with a lot of the other drivers anyway....

When I pulled into Paris there were so many people there!!! Crowds of Gumball fans waiting for the cars to arrive....

Wonder what would be the value of the cars on the Eurotunnel train??

Well at least the train gave me chance to sort the car out.....trashed it inside already had Gumball goodies wedged behind my seat and t shirts down the side pockets....was a mess. Ended up in the carriage with Buttsy and Kenny and their mental Supra

Crossing the Channel

Being as missed the start, I was one of the 1st cars to get to Dover....it was so cool to see people stood on the motorway bridges waving....made me realise how much people love the Gumball being as it was a cold wet day as well. Everyone all starting piling into entrance and then a huge group congregated. Au Revoir England.....Paris we are coming!!!!

Mind you had to wait ages for the train.......didnt mind though as still had to pinch myself to check I was really there

And we are off….

Quick shower and attempt to look as good as possible considering the night before (sunglasses are the best invention ever!)  so I go down to the grid and SHOCK HORROR my car isnt there...I had several people running around the grid searching for it and then I had a little panic! I got a taxi back to the car park where the cars were left for the sponsor stickers to be put on and the Ferrari was just sitting there along with a couple of other cars. Buttsy and Kenny's Supra was there too. I had left my keys with someone the day before and couldnt find anyone to tell me where my keys were apart from they were in the boot of a Maserati???? Thank goodness had left a spare key with someone else so got the car out and drove down to the grid but traffic wardens were being a nightmare and wouldnt let me join.  I said my goodbyes and just had to leave.....I was really gutted to have missed the start but knew there was lots of fun ahead.......
