Arrived safely…

Of the 233 crews authorised to take part in the 26th Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique, 225 arrived safely in Monaco on Friday, but eight had to retire on the way. Most of them were exhausted at the end of a much longer journey than expected, on some very busy roads. This Concentration Leg was a never-ending story, especially for the last arrivals: the five brave crews who set off from Glasgow on Wednesday had more than 2,000 km to cover, and it took them two whole days. All the others, who set off on Thursday from Bad Homburg (Germany), Milano (Italy) and Reims, took an average of 24 hours, night included, to cover between 900 and 1200 km, depending on the starting city they had chosen.

Patricia Lambert, whom we met on Friday in the Parc Fermé at the port of Monaco, was there for the very first edition. This year, she is in a little 1968 Fiat Moretti 850 S, number 220, bearing the colours of a cancer charity. Her driver, a Belgian like her, is Didier Lodewyckx. And like most of the crews who finally arrived in the Principality on Friday, Patricia was “very happy to see the sea”…

Saturday morning, the first cars will leave Monaco at 7am, heading to Valence for the Classification Leg. Valence, the unchallengeable and undisputed host-city of Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique over the past few years. There will be four Regularity Stages (RS) to contend with, starting with the magnificent SR1 “Soleilhas – Castellane (15.9 km)”, then SR2 “Chaudon Norante – Digne-les-Bains (15.9 km)” via the formidable Col de Corobin (1211 m), before the lunch break in the prefecture of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence.

In the afternoon, it’s back up to Valence via the SR3 “Ventavon – Chabestan (20.1 km)”, before crossing the Vercors massif with the SR4 “La Cîme du Mas – Col de Gaudissart (17.4 km)” on the menu. The final checkpoint is scheduled for Saint-Jean-en-Royans, around 5pm, after which all the competitors are expected on Champ de Mars in Valence from 6.30pm. It promises to be quite a day.
