In back, in the back the battle rages between Aghem/ Cumino, Delaportas/Moustakas and Hansen/Brodersen. It’s St Sauveur-Beuil, the last ZR, which decided of the podium. A struggle between Lancia Fulvia and Golf GTI, as thes two model car have trusted the 5 first ranks of the ZR, as a matter of fact the Opel Kadett GTE of Durand/Chol loose it 5th rank !
Finally, the Italians Aghem/ Cumino win this XXI° edition of Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique, it’s the second victory for the Aghem’s family, as Marco his son already win in 2005. Behin them, the Greek crew, extremly reliable , Delaportas/Moustakas with their Golf GTI then the cute Zastava 1100 of the Pole Postawka/Postawka.
