Next year’s Monte Carlo Rally will return to Gap after two years based out of the principality in Monaco.
Gap, the home town of eight-time World Rally champion and the most successful driver on the Monte Carlo Rally Sébastien Ogier, previously hosted the event from 2014-2021, with the service park relocating to Monaco for the final day’s action.
But last year the event was exclusively based in Monaco for the first time since 2006, where it remained for 2023.
However, due to space constraints, the rally organizer has decided to relocate the rally back to Gap for 2024, with Monaco hosting the start and finish ceremonies.
A statement said: “Due to major works, we have been unable to secure all the space required to maintain the service park and the various infrastructures in the principality.
“Therefore, the organizing committee of the Automobile Club de Monaco decided to return to the Hautes-Alpes region, more precisely to Gap, the host city from 2014 to 2021.
“However, the official start, finish and prize-giving ceremony of the event will continue to be held in Monaco.”
Further details of the event are expected to be announced in July.
Next year’s Monte Carlo Rally runs from January 25-28.
