Monaco closes its streets to shoot a short movie starring Locklear


Leclerc, 22, appears in a short film by Claude LeLouche in which the French director remakes the 1976 movie “Cite Encounter” (Cité Ann Rende-Fou), which was filming illegal high-speed driving on the streets of Paris in the early hours of the morning.

This time, however, the Monaco authorities agreed to close the street race track to traffic and pedestrians from 06:45 to 09:00.

“Today, I was supposed to witness the qualification trials for the race in my hometown,” wrote Locklear, who will drive the Ferrari SF90 Strudel in the movie “The Grand Meeting” (Legende Rende-Vu), on his Twitter account on Saturday.

“Because of the current situation, the Grand Prix has been canceled, but thanks to Ferrari I will be able to drive the car tomorrow for a short film by Claude Lelouch. I cannot wait to drive again,” Ferrari driver added.

The Monaco Grand Prix, which has been on the Formula 1 schedule since 1954 and is the most famous race in the world, was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the season has not started yet.

The authorities in Paris did not authorize the leadership of Lloch in 1976, but he went ahead with filming the movie. The camera was installed on the front of the Mercedes 450SL while the engine sound of the Ferrari 275 GTB.

The movie, which was filmed in one shot, revolves around the driver’s journey from Port Dauphin through the streets of central Paris to a meeting with his girlfriend in front of the Sacre Coeur Cathedral in the Montmartre region.

Lloch, now 82, was arrested briefly and his driver’s license was confiscated after the footage appeared. The movie was made available on DVD in 2003.
