Tom RacetteBack to press release

PHUKET, 24 May 2011 – HotelTravel.com’s Formula 1 event guide is on the move to the Monaco Grand Prix, the crown jewel of racing opulence on the annual F1 calendar.   Formula 1 heads immediately from one of the quicker tracks seen on the calendar in Catalunya, Spain to the very slowest, but at the same time definitely the most glamorous: Monaco. The tight and twisty confines of the principality are ideal territory for Red Bull Racing, especially if they can take pole position during qualifying.   HotelTravel.com Chief Information Officer Olivier Dombey, said: "Everyone that follows F1 loves the Monaco Grand Prix. It’s a race people remember watching growing up as kids and it’s a place that really showcases Formula 1 at its very best: racing flat-out around the toughest and greatest circuit in the world.”   “Red Bull have bolted straight out of the corral, although unsurprisingly, and Sebastian Vettel is defending his world championship brilliantly. He has displayed remarkable consistency and it would not be surprising to see more of the same at the Monaco Grand Prix,” Mr Dombey, concluded.   HotelTravel.com has updated its Formula 1 event guide since Vettel’s dramatic finish and last second win at the Spanish Grand Prix.  The Monaco Grand Grand Prix event guide lead article - Knowledge Is Key at the 2011 Monaco Grand Prix – serves up the juicy inside story on one of Formula 1’s most magical race weekends.   Followers of F1 seeking an exotic post race sojourn should also have a read through HotelTravel.com’s extensive travel article archive.  Two travel features worth a look include Spring in Paris and Paris: Hidden Treasures, both offering a rich vein of travel tips to one of the most romantic cities on the planet.   HotelTravel.com is also slashing rates on promotional deals for Monaco hotels especially for the Grand Prix, with rates starting from just EUR 93 per night.  Promotional deals for hotels in Paris are also available from only EUR 42 per night.   Motorheads can also get a head start and book early for future Formula 1 races by taking advantage of additional promotional hotel deals available exclusively on HotelTravel.com.  Promotional rates for hotels in Montreal start from US$ 68 per night; Valencia hotels can be had from just EUR 31 per night; while hotels in Milton Keynes are priced from as low as EUR 42 per night.   -----ends-----
