Shannons Monaco Historic Race Competition

Shannons Historic Monaco Race Competition

TIME to daydream: Imagine you’re in Monte Carlo, your bum firmly perched in a grandstand overlooking the iconic Formula One circuit, but something’s different. Instead of modern cars, there’s a stream of classic F1 machinery below.

Bugattis, Alfa Romeos, Maseratis, Ferraris; cars once raced by the greats of motor sport, not collecting dust in museums, but being driven hard, centimetres from the narrow circuit’s imposing metal barriers.

It’s the ultimate F1 fantasy and, thanks to Wheels Magazine and Shannons, you could make it a reality.

Shannons is giving you and a friend the chance to attend the 2016 Monaco Historic Grand Prix as part of an 11-day trip of a lifetime.

Starting in Venice, winners will travel to Bologna, where they’ll take part in the Italian Supercar Tour, and visit the factory and museums of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Ducati and Pagani.

You’ll get to drive, too – the prize includes five days in a Mercedes-Benz C-Class and a You Drive Experience for one in a Lamborghini LP 570-4 Superleggera.

The package ends with five nights in Nice to attend the Monaco Historic, and includes $1000 spending money ($5000 if you’re an eligible Shannons Club member) and a private, escorted shopping trip to St Tropez.

To enter, go to or call 13 46 46 and obtain an eligible quote on your car, bike or home insurance by April 10.
