The Stages

  • After Thursday evening’s glamorous Monte-Carlo start in Casino Square, two tough stages in darkness in the Alps punctuate the run up to Gap. 
  • Two loops of three remote tests south of the town form a compact but tiring Friday, which contains almost 145km of against-the-clock action.  
  • Equally gruelling third leg on Saturday features five more stages, all but one north of Gap, before the last service of the rally there and a long journey back to Monaco.
  • Sunday’s finale, as is traditional, runs in the Alpes Maritimes mountains above the Principality and features two passes over the legendary Col de Turini. 

Iconic Stage

  • Col de Turini. One of the sport’s iconic locations, where enormous crowds will gather to watch competitors cross the mountain summit in the La Bollene Vesubie – Peira Cava test in the final leg. An incredible atmosphere and a ‘must-do’ for visitors.

History

  • Rallye Monte-Carlo is the WRC’s jewel in the crown and the oldest in the calendar.
  • First run in 1911, it was designed to promote Monte-Carlo as a tourist destination, with competitors starting from different European cities before gathering in Monaco.
  • The 1966 rally became famed for its controversial outcome when giant-killing Mini Coopers claimed the top three places before being disqualified for alleged infringements of headlight regulations.

Don’t miss

  • The 2017 World Rally Cars! It’s the first opportunity to see the more powerful, bigger and more aggressive new-era cars on the stages. 
  • Col de Turini. One of the sport’s iconic locations, where enormous crowds will gather to watch competitors cross the mountain summit in the La Bollene Vesubie – Peira Cava test in the final leg. An incredible atmosphere and a ‘must-do’ for visitors.
  • Sunday’s finish outside the Palace in Monaco, with monarch Prince Albert presenting the prizes.
