For 2014 the WRC classic has undergone a transformation. Out goes the previous rally hub in Valence, in comes a new service base in Sebastien Ogier’s hometown of Gap and a substantially modified route.
The Monte has always featured an unusual format by WRC standards, and this year’s 82nd running is no exception. The recce runs between Saturday 11th and Monday 13th January and is followed, on Tuesday, by the traditional starting ceremony in Monte Carlo’s Place du Casino.
Shakedown is on Wednesday 15th, on a road close to a new central service Park in Gap, with the competition proper getting underway on Thursday with a first loop of three stages run twice in the Haute Alpes region.
Friday features Monte Classics like the 49.25 km Vitrolles - Col D'Espreaux - Faye , which is run twice, the 36.70km Sisteron - Col de Fontbelle - Thoard and a night running of Clumanc - Col du Défend - Lambruisse.
That night competitors will head south to Monaco, from where Saturday’s final leg is based. The action comprises two loops of two stages in the hinterland of Nice - one by day and the other by night. The rally will end on Sunday 19th with the traditional awards ceremony on the square of the Prince's Palace in Monaco.
