Thirty-five teams, five of which were red Maseratis, and more than 70 high-profile women who took turns behind the wheel during a European Tour that touched all the fashion and lifestyle capital cities, were the inspiration for Julie Brangstrup, founder of the Cash & Rocket Tour 2015. The 70 drivers covered 1,717 km over the course of the four days onboard 35 bright red supercars.

Among the celebrities at the wheel of the Maserati Ghiblis saw the likes of Saturdays singer Mollie King, former angel of Victoria’s Secret, Selita Ebanks; glamorous model and talented Spanish TV presenter, Nieves Álvarez; British model Jodie Kidd, who has achieved international success combining her love of fashion and driving; and one of the most popular YouTubers in the United Kingdom, Patricia Bright.  Taking turns at the wheel of a Maserati Quattroporte, were several editors and influencers of Buro 24/7, the most important media and lifestyle platform in Eastern Europe, a major force in the realm of fashion and lifestyle.

The Cash & Rocket Tour convoy collected money for three extremely worthwhile African non-profit organisations: Shine On Sierra Leone, OAfrica in Ghana and Sumbandila in South Africa.  At the charity auction, held in conjunction with the gala dinner which kicked off the event, they managed to raise more than £550,000 for benevolent purposes. The Tour wound up with the successful achievement of its ambitious goal by raising over one million pounds.

The Cash & Rocket Tour began in London with a gala evening on Thursday 14 May.

The following morning, with a spectacular parade, the 70 drivers promoted the Tour across London’s most iconic spots: from the London Eye to Regents Street, going through Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, Pall Mall and Oxford Street.

The Tour then headed to Paris, arriving in Place Vendôme, which welcomed the breath-taking car display.

On Sunday 17 May this extraordinary motorcade was back on the road, this time headed in the direction of Lyon where, after some friendly tennis matches, the women spearheading the event went to the Chateau de Pizay, a beautiful Renaissance fortress, which served as the setting for a formal evening, featuring either “total black” or “total white” looks.

On Monday the 18th, the charity Tour reached Italy, stopping in the Lombard capital of Milan where the participants were treated to an elegant cocktail party at Palazzo Bocconi. Amongst the influencers and philanthropists who joined forces for this evening to support Julie Brangstrup, were Franca Sozzani, Anna Cleveland, Ennio and Dragana Capasa, Nicoletta Romanoff, Candela Novembre, Angela Missoni and of course all the Cash and Rocket Tour drivers: Jodie Kidd, Eleonora Carisi, Ashley Graham, Alessia Marcuzzi, Lena Perminova, Lisa Lovatt-Smith, Chloe Green, Leila Yavari, Yasmin mills and Nieves Alvarez.

This memorable Tour came to a conclusion yesterday, Tuesday the 19th, with a final phase that saw the procession of supercars making their entry into Cannes, the glittering setting of the Film Festival, moving down the legendary Croisette.  Here a line of Maseratis posed for the obligatory ritual of photos, while a Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte were featured in an elegant cortege along the red carpet.

This unforgettable Tour concluded with a glamorous cocktail reception hosted by Chopard, the Swiss-based luxury watch brand, on the Terrace at the Martinez Hotel, which saw Team 01 Chloe Green and Angelica Donati earn the first prize for fundraising in aid of the three charities supported by Cash and Rocket: OAfrica, Sumbandila and Shine On Sierra Leone.
