90° Rallye De Monte-Carlo                                    17/01 - 23/01

Welcome Back to the Principality of Monaco


The Monte-Carlo Rally will open the 2022 edition of the World Rallye Championship (WRC) from its homebase in Monaco, instead of the usual host-city of Gap since 2014 in the Alps. This was a wish of the Organizing Committee at the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM) in order to orchestrate the multiple celebrations of the 90th edition of the most glamourous rally in the world. As 95% of the route has been modified, compared to last year, it will be, more than ever, a perfect mix between conservatism and originality, thanks to a set of very demanding special stages selected in the Alpes-Maritimes and Alpes-de-Haute-Provence.


Official Programme of the Stages
