The time has come for the 75 entered to compete on the roads of the rally Monte Carlo. For this first round of the season, the line-up in the premier category is certainly made up of only 10 Rally1s, but it should still offer us a great show from Thursday to Sunday.
If Sebastian Loeb missing in this 91e edition, the task will not necessarily be easy for Sebastien Ogier. Logically appearing among the favorites, the Gapençais will have to keep an eye on his teammate and above all reigning world champion Kalle Rovanperä. Thierry Neuville, Ott Tanak or even Elfyn Evans place themselves in ambush and could seize the slightest opportunity to try to get involved in the fight for victory.
Regarding the program, this Rallye Monte-Carlo 2023 will be contested over a total of 18 specials ranging from Thursday evening to Sunday noon. The route has been modified by around 50% and will take the pilots through the roads of the neighboring departments of Alpes-Maritimes and Alpes-de-Haute-Provence.
The departure of the 91e edition of the Monte-Carlo Rally will be given this Thursday evening at 8:18 p.m. with the special starting from La Bollène-Vésubie up to the Col de Turini.
