Classic Car Comment  Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique is go. Two hundred and seventy classics leaving Milan, Bad Homburg and Reims from 14:00 on Thursday 27 January and driving through the night, south to Monaco. Then, after a short rest, it‘s back into the mountains for three days of tough competition. But that‘s not the finish. Before any celebration, crews face a final night loop that includes challenges such as the infamous Col de Turini. Retro-Speed Magazine has entered a team and will be covering the event live.
