What a way to start a new WRC season! Rallye Monte-Carlo has been the jewel in the world rally crown since 1911, making it the oldest event on the calendar. Originally run to promote Monte-Carlo as a tourist destination, competitors used to start from all over Europe and gather in Monaco. The ceremonial start of modern day ‘Monte’ takes place in Gap, France with the prize-giving finale held at the impressive Les Palais des Princes de Monaco to reflect the event’s heritage. Befitting one of the most prestigious events on the WRC calendar, Rallye Monte-Carlo is also one of the most complex. Unpredictable weather conditions on the mountain stages means crews have to expect the unexpected. Snow, ice and dry tarmac can all feature, often in the same stage. At ‘Monte’, experience, strategy and an accurate weather forecast can play a key role in successfully navigating the Alpine roads. 

2020 Summary
It was an ideal start to the 2020 season as Thierry and Nicolas charged to victory in the season opener. The pair finished the event with a total of nine stage wins, as well as picking up maximum Power Stage points en route to the team’s first win at Rallye Monte-Carlo.
