COMPETITION! Hotel de France – celebrating 65 years of motoring heritage!

2018 is a special anniversary year for us!  In 1953 legendary racing manager John Wyer -first used the hotel as HQ for his Aston Martin team – and their families!  Since then countless racing drivers and glamorous names have visited including: Stirling Moss, Derek Bell, Carroll Shelby (seen here in his Aston Martin DBS), Jackie Kennedy and Steve McQueen; many of whom returned regularly, year after year.

We’re compiling classic motoring tales and anecdotes from our wonderful guests.  What are your automotive memories from the hotel?

Please send us your stories, with pictures (for website and social media) and we’ll have some ‘just for fun’ prizes for the best.  Thank you!
