Monte Carlo goes back to the future
- 11th August 2006, 8:47am
Two night stages will kick of next year's Monte Carlo Rally, the first round of the 2007 WRC, taking the rally back to its roots.
Competitors will also contest a super special stage using part of the Monaco Grand Prix circuit - the first time the track will have been used in the event since 1997.
The super special stage will take in the start-finish straight, swimming pool complex and Rascasse corner, but will not head up the hill to the area around the famous Casino Square.
"We are very pleased to be bringing the event back to its historic roots, and we hope this is going to attract plenty of amateur drivers as well as the professionals," Clerk of the Course Rene Isoart said.
