A tough nut to crack!
Three days only after the arrival of the 88thMonte-Carlo Rally, crews entered in the 23rd Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique will be faced with a very tough route as well: a succession of Regularity Stages (SR) where great stories where written, belonging to the legend of this prestigious event won 60 years ago by the Mercedes 220 SE (#128) of Walter Schock / Rolf Moll. This 2020 edition will be even more exciting, thanks to the dedicated Organizing Committee at Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM). The succession of Michel Badosa and Mogens Reidl, the winning crew last year in a Renault 8, is now open…
Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique can only accept cars entered in previous editions of the Monte-Carlo Rally between 1911 and 1980. And in order to allow all crews a chance to finish in a decent position, they will again have a choice, in 2020, between three average speeds to respect during the whole race.
The start of this 23rd edition will be given on Wednesday January 29 for the first starts of the concentration leg, in Athens (1,715km/12:40pm) and Glasgow (2,142km/6pm). Then, on Friday January 31, other crews will depart from Bad Homburg(1,257km/2pm), Milano (1,069km/6pm), Barcelona (958km/7pm), Reims (940km/7pm) and Monte-Carlo (950km/8pm) with a common destination: Buis-les-Baronnies, in the very heart of Drôme Provençale, a rallying point that crews will reach on Saturday February 1 from 10:30am onwards. At that point, the concentration leg will not be over. It will end with the first two regularity stages, well-known by regular competitors of the event: Montauban-sur-l’Ouvèze – Saint-André-de-Rosans / SR1 / 45km / 11:30am followed by La Motte-Chalancon – Saint-Nazaire-le-Désert / SR2 / 17km / 1:10pm. The last checkpoint of the day is scheduled in Crest at 3pm, before rallying the host-city, Valence (Drôme), where the first crews are expected on Champ de Mars from 3:55 pm onwards.
On Sunday February 2, at 6:30am, the Classification Leg in Ardèche will start with La Croze – Antraigues-sur-Volane / SR3 / 57km / 7:50am, another classic stage with its finish line in front of the famous “Remise”, the mythical restaurant of the Jouanny family. Another legendary stage will follow, Burzet – Lachamp-Raphaël / SR4 / 49km / 9:55am, in a brand new version crossing Saint-Martial. The half-day pause is scheduled from 12:40pm on Place du Marchéin Saint-Agrève, where all crews will enjoy a pleasing moment tasting local produce, before starting an interesting loop: Saint-Bonnet-le-Froid / SR5 / 25km / 1:05pm followed by Saint-Pierre-sur-Doux – Col du Buisson / SR6 / 22km / 1:45pm. Then, on the way back to Valence (4:50pm), there will be a checkpoint in Plats (3:35 pm) and a popular and festive stop on Quai Farconnet in Tournon-sur-Rhône, from 4pm onwards.
Heading for Vercors, the Ecrins Nature Park and the Diois area, the 1st Part of the Common Leg will start on Monday February 3 at 6:30am for what promises to be a very tough day on the road. The first Regularity Stage will be Col de Gaudissart – La Cime du Mas / SR7 / 18km / 8am followed by Les Nonières – Chichilianne / SR8 / 19km / 9:50am, then a checkpoint on Place Roger Brachet in Mens (10:50am) before starting Saint-Michel-en-Beaumont – Corps / SR9 / 16km / 11:25am and eventually La Piarre – Establet / SR10 / 31km / 1:20pm. The last pause of the day, before returning to Valence (5:40pm), will happen on Place du Champ de Mars at Saint-Jean-en-Royans with a checkpoint from 4:30pm onwards.
On Tuesday February 4, the first crews will leave Valence at 5:30am. This 2nd Part of the Common Leg will start with Saint-Nazaire-le-Désert – La Motte-Chalançon / SR11 / 21km / 7:05am followed closely by Bréziers – Selonnet / SR 12 / 18km / 9:55am. After a checkpoint on Place du Tampinet in Digne-les-Bains (11:15am), the crews will head for the legendary stage of Col de Corobin, Etablissement Thermal – Norante / SR13 / 16km / 11:25am. The last checkpoint before entering parc fermé in Monaco (3:15pm) will be set up on Place Neuve in La Turbie, from 2:40pm onwards.
The Final Leg, scheduled for the night of Tuesday 4 to Wednesday February 5, will start from Monaco at 9pm, with two more legendary stages on the menu: Col de Braus – Lantosque / SR14 / 34km / 10:15pm and La Bollène-Vésubie – Sospel / SR15 / 35km / 11:35pm. The remaining crews will then reach Port Hercule in Monaco around 1:30am.
Finally, according to tradition, the Gala and the Prize Giving will take place on the evening of Wednesday February 5 in the Salle des Etoiles – Monte-Carlo Sporting Club (evening dress mandatory or dark clothing mandatory).

The ICE St. Moritz has been created to enjoy driving, showing and watching some of the world’s most exciting motor cars in the unlikely environment of the frozen lake. Polo matches and Horse-Racing have been held there for decades, and a high class motoring event seemed the natural choice to expand the winter lake activities.
The idea first came in mind in the mid-Eighties and it took many years to make it true.
UNIQUE AND MAGIC
The ICE St.Moritz is a very different event, a refreshing concours. A completely magical environment where drivers, collectors, and just plain car enthusiasts enjoy a late winter day in the sunshine, surrounded by the landscape and atmosphere that only St.Moritz, at the top of the world, is able to offer.
WE ARE HOSTED BY NATURE, AND BY ST. MORITZ
As anyone who frequently visits the Mountain or the Sea knows very well, Nature must be respected, known and feared. As you know, we will not only walk, but also drive on the (frozen) water. As mere guests of the Lake, we need to be humble, prudent and wise.
This means that all our efforts have taken into consideration the environment around us, in terms of temperature and lake/ice conditions, but also in terms of pollution. We must be very thankful to St. Moritz for letting us play on their white jewel. We must act wisely, and give them back their lake as nice and clean as possible, as we want to repeat this event – and see it grow – in the future.
The frozen lake has been one of the assets of St. Moritz for more than a century, and one of the things that has contributed in creating and developing its legendary position as the world’s top winter destination. In the last decades, the use of the frozen lake has morphed from an art to a science. As we will see, nothing is done by chance.
St.Moritz has created a dedicated organisation, See Infra AG, who looks after the lake. They monitor the ice thickness with many different systems and with the help of renown glaciologist, Dr. F.Keller.
As soon as the ice reaches a thickness of 27 cm, crash tests are carried out with weights of 7,700 kg and by driving a special 3,500 kg snow-track vehicle with safety floats. After this the lake is cleared for the construction of the event-village. Ice-thickness checks are continuously carried out and at the time of the event the ice was roughly 45 cm thick, guaranteeing it perfect stability.
