The screaming engines blasting out of the campsites can only mean one thing: the show has well and truly come to town and the Monster Energy Grand Prix of France has kicked off a party that’s going to run all weekend.
Over at their public hospitality on Thursday night they hosted the first big race that really counted. Stepping it up from the infamous BBQ and hot tub session Monster put on in 2010 they tore up a load of dirt below our hospitality units as media got to duel it out on pit bikes, while the Monster Energy riders looked on. Hosted and commentated by your friend and ours, Colin Edwards, we saw journalists from all over the world take each other on in front of a capacity crowd and some huge tunes.
The Paddock Buzz will take you through the weekend and most importantly the sights and sounds of what goes down both on and off the track. With Valentino and the boys having already come and hung out with us at our hospitality and two hot tubs packed full of Monster Girls, we’ve kinda set the tone for the next couple of days. It’s only right that we share the best of what’s been going on, but be prepared for a load more action.
