It’s almost that time of year again! In just a few short weeks, the 2019 Monte-Carlo Classic Rally will kick-off across several cities in Europe including through the Principality of Monaco.

For this 22nd edition of the Monte-Carlo Classic Rally, classic collectors automobiles will race through Athens, Barcelona, Bad Homburg, Glasgow, Milan, Monte-Carlo, and Reims. These exceptional cars can be seen zipping around these locations from Wednesday, January 30th to Saturday, February 2, 2019. In order to participate, a car needs to have been raced in the Monte-Carlo Automobile Rallies that took place between 1955 and 1980.

The stunning vehicles will follow a very selective, challenging course. The race will take place just a few days after the finish of the 87th Monte-Carlo Automobile rally. Performances will not be timed but will pass through a series of checkpoints until they reach Valence (the rallying point for the Monte-Carlo Historic Rally).  In the desire to allow all participants to be listed well in the race results, there be three averages to keep in mind

Should competitors wish, following the official end of the race, they can remove their rally numbers and carry on to Monaco on Sunday, February 3rd. Each driver opting to continue on will follow their own route (while avoiding that of the Monte-Carlo Historic Rally) to the Port of Monaco, where the cars will be parked up in a traditional “parc fermé”. Afterward, a night in a double room at the Hôtel Fairmont and dinner at the Automobile Club de Monaco are planned.
