Over the summer we have been spoilt for choice on events, from motor sport to cricket and horse racing to tennis there has been something to suite everyone’s taste. So, we thought we would take a look at some of the highlights.
We started off the summer in style with the Monaco GP, famed for its high-profile glamour combined with unbeatable views it is no surprise this is an iconic Formula 1 race and the perfect place to experience motor sport hospitality. This year certainly did not disappoint as fans saw the return of British driver Jenson Button stand in for Fernando Alonso for a one-off race. There was celebration for Ferrari as they took first place on the podium with driver Sebastian Vettel, this was their first win at Monaco since 2001 when Michael Schumacher took the chequered flag.
It is one of the most prestigious horse racing events in the world, where VIP guests will have the opportunity to spot the queen and other members of the Royal family on the Royal possession. This year provided racegoers with some spectacular entertainment, with Trainer A P O'Brien and his horse Highland Reel raced to victory in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes, the most valuable race of the week. On Ladies’ Day the famous Group 1 Gold Cup took place and was won by Big Orange trained by Michael Bell.

The Championships is an unmissable tennis event, where else can you find so many of the World’s best tennis players all under one roof?

This year out hospitality guests joined in with the celebrations of the world-famous rowing event, we can think of nothing better than sipping champagne on the river bank watching all the activity on the river.
What better way to round off the summer events than bringing Formula 1 to the infamous Silverstone tracks. All eyes were on Lewis Hamilton to get another victory in front of his home crowd, and the driver did not disappoint. In a thrilling race he took top spot on the podium and managed to close the gap between him and title rival Sebastian Vettel to 1 point, making for another show stopping race for our VIP guests.
