Highland Fling, April 2024 – REVIEW

May 2024 saw us take 21 sports and supercars on a road trip to remember – down to Monaco where we stayed at the Fairmont for 3 nights.  This trip was just 2 weeks before the Monaco Grand Prix to there was a real buzz whilst we were there – and some of that buzz was caused by our cars parked right outside the Fairmont, the spotters loved them.  Participants on this tour took some of the best machines available from Porsche, Aston Martin, Mclaren and Ferrari (the F12 N-Largo caused quite a stir) along with very capable offerings from Volkswagen, BMW and of course Nissan with a couple of GTRs.

The trip down saw us take the famous Route Napoleon, with a few extras thrown in, diverting off for some excellent fast road driving, as we popped out just above Nice and then headed down to Monte Carlo.  Whilst in Monte Carlo some took the option of a few days off, some went for local drives (and a few laps of the Monaco F1 circuit) and some joined planned drives out to Red Rock Canyon and Col de Turini.

From Monte Carlo we headed across the coast road to the Italian border then back north via a VERY wet Italy. From Italy we started the day in glorious sunshine, with the snow capped mountains all around.  We then headed in to and across Switzerland, before crossing in to Germany and some last moments of fun driving sections of the Black Forest, before reaching our final destination in Germany.  A final night dinner in one of our favourite restaurants in the town was included in the trip, with some delicious food, free-flowing drinks and lots of laughter, providing a fitting finish to a great week.

A MASSIVE thank you goes out from us to everyone who came on the event – another brilliant group of people who fully embraced the culture we’ve created at Slap Adventures – leave your egos at home, and let’s go driving (oh and stay in some cool hotels, relax in the spa, eat some delicious food and have a beer / wine to finish off).   If you want to join us in Monaco we go again (just for the one night this time) in September 2025 – we’d love for you to join us.
