Deja Monte OCT22-4

Déjà vu Monte Carlo

We ran this event in May, 2023 and it was so well received that we are running it again in May 2024, with a few of the rough edges smoothed out. So it’s Deja vu, Deja vu Monte Carlo!

The Monte is the most iconic rally in the world. Winners such as Paddy Hopkirk became household names. When Paddy won the Monte in a Mini Cooper it became the in car, even the Beatles had to have one.

Déjà vu Monte Carlo will drive over famous special stages such as St. Bonnet le Froid, Le Burzet, Sisteron, and the most famous stage in the world, the Col de Turini.
It will be a leisurely run with no timing and no pressure. Navigation will be simple and a detailed route book with maps will be provided. No previous rally experience is required and you don’t need a rally car, a classic car from the 60s through 80s would be ideal. You do need to have an interest in rallying, in particular the Monte and we promise that will get your eyes opened and that your respect for those who compete in the real Monte Carlo rally will increase by leaps and bounds.

There will be plenty of time to take in the stupendous alpine views and gasp in awe at some of the horrendous drops that the drivers had to navigate on roads covered in ice and snow. You can start whatever time you wish in the morning, the only caveat being that you will have to be on time if you want to join the group for dinners and the lunch in Monaco.

Above all it will a time of great craic and camaraderie and all for a good cause, profits will go to Rally Marshals, without whom there would be no rallying.
