E-Rally refocusses on Monaco

The E-Rally Monte-Carlo held later this year will take place around the Principality of Monaco, with a new route through the Alpes-Maritimes and the Var.

The Organising Committee of the Automobile Club of Monaco (ACM) recently released the programme for the fifth edition of the E-Rally Monte-Carlo, which will be held between 22nd and 25th October.

In an effort to boost the local economy, all races will start and end in the Principality, at the Quai des États-Unis.

Meanwhile, the Covid-19 crisis has forced organisers to decrease the total mileage while maintaining the 220 stage kilometres, according to international regulations. In total, there will be 10 rally stages available to participants and four legs, the longest being on Friday with 360 kilometres throughout the Var.

The E-Rally Monte-Carlo is reserved for 100% electric vehicles and 100% hydrogen-powered cars.

It has come to be highly regarded by car manufacturers and race teams who are eager to show the technological and innovative potential of their vehicles, in a rough and tough environment.

The ACM has released this provisional programme:
