Movehut competition winners look forward to Monaco Grand Prix

Posted on 28 April, 2015 by admin

Two directors of a Plymouth based property firm are looking forward to enjoying this year’s Monaco Grand Prix after winning a competition with Movehut.


Ifan Rhys-Jones and Annemarie Rhys-Jones, of Listers Property Consultants – pictured with their tickets to the annual motor racing event – have booked their flights and hotel and can’t wait to get there.

The Monaco Grand Prix is the most prestigious race of the Formula One season. It first took place in 1929 when it was won by William Grover-Williams driving a Bugatti.

Since then it has been won by many of the most famous names in the sport, but only 14 drivers have won the race on more than one occasion.

British drivers Stirling Moss and Jackie Stewart are tied on three wins each. Moss first won in Monaco in 1956 while Stewart’s last win came in 1973, but neither driver can match the achievement of fellow Briton Graham Hill.

Hill  won the race five times between 1963 and 1969, earning him the title the King of Monaco. However, even Hill’s record is eclipsed by the legendary Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna who was first to the chequered flag no less than six times.

Senna‘s first win came in 1987 and was followed by five consecutive victories between 1989 and 1993 – the year before his tragic death in the San Marino Grand Prix.

Last year’s Monaco Grand Prix was won by Nico Rosberg, ahead of his Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton, and both will be among the favourite’s for this year’s race which takes place on May 24.

Lister’s Property Consultants is an independent commercial property adviser established in 2011 and headed by Ifan Rhys-Jones. When not in the office, Ifan’s interests include sailing, skiing, swimming and cycling.
