The Beardmore Hotel & Conference Centre was delighted to win at the Scottish Hotel Awards 2012:
Monte Carlo Rally changes gear to the Beardmore
The Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre is delighted to be chosen as the official hotel for competitors taking part in the 2012 Monte Carlo Classic Rally.
The four star venue will be hosting over 100 vehicles and their drivers before they set off on their 2,000km journey from the Titan crane in Clydebank to Monte Carlo in Monaco in January.
Organised by the Automobile Club de Monaco, the annual event starts at points all over Europe, each roughly equidistant from the finish line. Following a very successful launch from Glasgow city centre last year, this is the first time the cars will be setting off from Clydebank.
Bronagh Bell, Director of the Beardmore, said: “The Monte Carlo Rally is one of the most famous motor sport events in the world. We are delighted that the Beardmore is now associated with this annual pilgrimage that is synonymous with glamour, human adventure and beautiful cars.”
The rally was created by Prince Albert I of Monaco in 1911 and initially featured 23 cars starting from six different European cities.
