New safety rules will come into force from Thursday for spectators of the Monte-Carlo Rally. The International Automobile Federation (IAF) has introduced the tougher regulations to avoid the risk of injury to spectators and any interference in the running of the event.

Three hundred safety officials plus the Gendarmerie will ensure that spectators stay within areas reserved for the public (ZP), marked in green. Stricter parking provisions will be enforced, and thirty minutes before the starting out of the first competitor and until the end of the competition spectators can no longer enter the special stages or move in them, on the road or on the shoulders.

Failure to comply with these safety rules will result in the cancellation of the special stage. On Wednesday, January 18, the shakedown will take place at Gap, from 4 pm until 8 pmOn Thursday, competitors will leave Place du Casino in Monaco at 6 pm for the first stage, Monaco to Gap.
