The 21st edition of the Rally Monte-Carlo Historiquestarts in Barcelona tomorrow on February 2. Barcelona has been one of the start points for Europe’s crowning regularity rally for 16 years. Besides Barcelona, the other 6 cities with start points for the Rally Monte-Carlo Historique are Reims (France), Oslo (Norway), Glasgow (UK), Bad Homburg (Germany) and Monte Carlo. The Moll de Marina wharf, in Barcelona’s Port Olímpic, has once again been chosen for the start ceremony. The event gets under way at 2.30 pm on 2 February. From first thing in the morning teams will be going through scrutiny procedures, remaining closed off until it’s time to set off from the podium area.
Rally Monte Carlo Historique participants who start in Barcelona will have to travel 1,140 km of the Concentration itinerary. Having started from the Moll de la Marina, the cars will enter France through Bourg-Madame, an enclave where a pass control will be installed. From there, the teams will move to Carcassonne, where they must pass a time control. They will continue their way to the town of Bourgoin-Jallieu, a common meeting point where all the vehicles that will have started from the 6 European cities will be gathered. On Saturday February 3 they will move from Borugoin-Jaller to Valence, to finish the Concentration stage. 41 pilots and co-pilots are French, 22 are Spanish, 10 are Italians, 2 are Swiss and 1 is Andorran.
The original Monte Carlo Rally is one of the oldest luxury events. On the other hand, the Rally Monte Carlo Historique is only 21 years old yet and has already gained a solid reputation. Open to the owners of classic cars prior to 1977, many of which have a real history of rallies (both cars and drivers), has mixed the essence of the legendary old rallies with a modern format of regularity.
