After the cancellation of the Historic and Formula 1 Grands Prix due to the Covid-19 epidemic, the Automobile Club de Monaco, following the bad weather related to the Alex Storm, decided to give up the kick-off of the 5th E-Rallye Monte-Carlo, which was to be held from October 22 to 25.
This 5thedition promised to be brilliant, due to the record number of 49 entries which was a world first in the discipline.
The distress of the inhabitants, especially of the Vesubie and Roya valleys, could only encourage us to consider the tragedies that have occurred, rather than the interest of a sporting event.
Consequently, the Organizing Committee of the 5thE-Rallye Monte-Carlo has decided to cancel the event altogether.
On the other hand, the staff of Marshals actually available are ready to help the municipalities affected by the disaster.
Already, in consultation with the town halls concerned, three convoys are sent in the direction of Bollene-Vesubie, Breil sur Roya and Tende, with essential equipment, taking into account in particular the early winter conditions which aggravate the situation.
Devastated by the tragedy, the Automobile Club de Monaco and its volunteers are profoundly motivated and enlisted by this solidarity and mutual aid operation…
