ACM in the search for snow as 2024 Monte-Carlo Rally stages revealed

Monte-Carlo Rally in the snow

The 92nd edition of the Monte-Carlo Rally will go in search of snow, the Automobile Club of Monaco has announced. 

14 stages, 17 specials, and hopefully more snow. That’s the idea behind next year’s Monte-Carlo Rally route, which will see the cars travel through five French departments.

The curtain-raiser of the 2024 World Rally Car (WRC) season will, as always, begin in Casino Square. Starting in the Principality on Thursday 25th January 2024, the cars will soon be at altitude. The grid will go to the west, and east of Gap, a partner city that hosted the Rally between 2014 and 2021.

It is hoped that the return to Gap will bring with it more snow, with the ACM wanting the elements to play a greater role in the iconic rally series. The Rally will go through Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, Hautes-Alpes, Drôme and Isère, before heading back to the Principality on Sunday 28th January.

Three stages, between Gap and Monaco, will conclude the event before the trophy ceremony in Casino Square on the Sunday afternoon as Sébastien Ogier looks to defend his crown.
