Elizabeth Hurley and Justin Theroux enjoy some grid action together as FIA Formula E Championship takes to the streets of Marrakesh
Justin Theroux and Elizabeth Hurley experienced the thrill of FIA Formula E Championship's BMW i8 car today ahead of the first race of 2019.
Following an intimate dinner ahead of the first FIA Formula E Championship race of 2019 at a luxury restaurant hidden away in the city of Marrakesh last night, the pair got up close and personal with the cars with Justin taking the wheel to put the i8 through its paces on the track, while Elizabeth was driven by FIA Formula E Championship Founder & CEO of Formula E, Alejandro Agag.
Last night, while Justin’s ex wife Jennifer Aniston may be moving on, the On The Basis of Sex and Bumblebee star was moving up, leaving his recent heart break for dust as he cosied up with English actress and model Elizabeth Hurley over an exclusive candlelit dinner hosted by FIA Formula E Championship Founder and CEO Alejandro Agag in the heart of Marrakesh’s vibrant medina.
The pair were also joined for dinner by Tamara Beckwith and fashion designer Patrick Cox.
Justin Theroux said: Formula E is something I have never experiences before. It is innovative, exciting, and most importantly responsible to our environment. I am so happy to be here.
