January 23-26, Monte Carlo, Monaco

The dust seems to have barely settled on a truly epic World Rally Championship season and we’re already looking ahead to the start of a fresh campaign, such is the pace of modern top-flight rallying.

There’s also been much change in the ranks across those few weeks. Citroën has been and gone, with the French firm’s talisman Sébastien Ogier quitting the Alsace firm to switch across to Toyota, replacing reigning champion Ott Tänak, who jumped ship to Hyundai just days after clinching his maiden title. With scarcely time to draw breath from that, Briton Elfyn Evans has swapped his M-Sport Ford Fiesta for a Tommi Mäkinen-prepared Toyota Yaris to line up alongside Ogier in what will undoubtedly be the Welshman’s biggest career test yet.

Ogier is a master of Monte Carlo, having won it six times on the trot – even when in a recalcitrant Citroën C3 last term – so expect the six-time world champion to be the man to beat. However, Tänak is unlikely to be hanging around in his new Hyundai, but can he overcome Belgian team-mate Thierry Neuville, who has much more experience at the wheel of the i30 WRC?

Monte will be a dramatic stage for the combatants to find out. With ever-changing conditions, fluctuating grip levels and some stunning scenery, it’s one of – if not the – highlight of the WRC calendar.

Local Knowledge

HOW TO GET THERE Despite Monaco having no international airport, the principality is easily accessible from land, air or sea. The closest airport is Nice in France, with regular flights from all major UK airports. Monaco’s main station – Gare de Monaco – is connected with most major cities, and plenty of cruise firms run boats regularly. Or for those who fancy a road trip, head to Calais and point yourselves south – admittedly for about 1200km.

ALSO GOING ON There’s plenty to do in Monaco, but be prepared to splash out if you’re headed to the casinos or high-profile bars.

DON’T MISS The spectacular Col de Turini stage. Set high in the Alps, the 19-mile mountain test features hairpins, tight roads and is the technical centrepiece of the rally. Plus the view’s not half bad either…
