Rallye Monte-Carlo returns to Gap base for 2024

The opening round of next year’s FIA World Rally Championship will return its base to Gap, it has been revealed today (Tuesday).

The vibrant Hautes-Alpes town of Gap, birthplace of eight-time WRC champion Sébastien Ogier, had been a proud host of the classic season-opening fixture from 2014 to 2021.

Although there was a change in 2022, when the rally relocated solely to Monaco, it has been confirmed today that Rallye Monte-Carlo will predominantly return its base to Gap for 2024.

An announcement from the Automobile Club de Monaco stated: “Due to major works, it was unable to secure all the space required to maintain the service park and the various infrastructures in the Principality.

“Therefore, the organising Committee of the Automobile Club de Monaco decided to return to the Hautes-Alpes department, more precisely to Gap, the host city from 2014 to 2021. However, the official start, finish and prize-giving ceremony of the event will continue to be held in Monaco.

“The detailed route of this 92nd edition, which will take place from 22 to 28 January 2024, will be announced next month.”
