The Top Marques team last week unveiled the only NASCAR driven by a French racing driver, Michel Disdier, at the Collection of Cars of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.
The world-premiere of this extraordinary car, designed by French artist Richard Orlinski, was due to be one of the highlights of the 2021 edition of Top Marques supercar show, now postponed until June 8 – 12, 2022.
To mark the occasion of the 78th edition of the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix, Michel Disdier’s NASCAR was unveiled in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II and His children, Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella at the Collection of Cars of H.S.H. Prince Albert II. The twins followed their father by adding Their signatures to the NASCAR, making it even more unique.
“What a pleasure it was to also meet His Sovereign’s children, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, who had a great time with us. They even took advantage of writing their autographs on the vehicle, which is also appropriately named the ArtCar,” joked Michel Disdier.
“We are very happy to have been able to present, as a world preview, the NASCAR car at the Monaco Grand Prix in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert and His children. I would like to thank His Sovereign for his support as well as the Collection of Cars of H.S.H. Prince Albert II. The presentation of Michel Disdier’s car was a very special event as it is the first time that a NASCAR driven by a Frenchman has been displayed in Europe, and in the Principality of Monaco.
“It was memorable moment, which was made more meaningful as it took place at the same time as the Monaco Grand Prix,” said Salim Zeghdar, CEO of Top Marques.
