For the nostalgics of "Monte-Carlo" of yesteryear!
The 20th edition of the Rally Monte-Carlo Historique pays tribute to the participation in the 1967 Rallye Automobile Monte-Carlo of French rock icon Johnny Hallyday and Henri Chemin in a Ford Mustang. Half-a-century on, the event promises to attract another strong entry to see who succeeds from the 2016 winners Daniel Perfetti and Ronnie Kessel (Alpine-Renault A110).
As usual, the 2017 Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique will be open to cars that took part in the actual event from 1955 until 1980. To give all competitors a chance to target an honourable result, there will once again be a choice of three average speed levels to comply with during the competition.
The rally will start on Wednesday, January 25, with the week's first Concentration Run starts from Stockholm (2,735km / 9:10am), Glasgow (2,092km / 6:09pm) and Lisbon (2,212km / 7:10pm). Another start venue option is Copenhagen (2,074km / 12:20pm) on Thursday, January 26), or competitors can choose Bad Homburg (1,242km / 3:40pm), Barcelona (1,050km / 5:50pm) or Reims (1,004km / 8:30pm) on Friday, January 27.
The routes of the different Concentration Runs will convene in Digne les Bains from 10:00am on Saturday, January 28, before moving on to Saint Andre les Alpes - near the spectacular Verdon Lake and Gorges - from 10:55am. Competitive hostilities will then kick off with the first Regularity Section between Entrevaux, Val de Chalvagne and Entrevaux (15.78km) at 12:10pm. After this appetiser which takes in the Col de Felines (altitude: 930 metres), the field will head to the end-of-day halt in the Principality of Monaco.
