The Monte-Carlo Car Rally is a motorsport
rally event organised by the Automobile Club of Monaco which starts
and finishes in the Principality of Monaco, while the major part of the
route takes place further north, particularly in the French departments of
the Alpes-Maritimes, the Ardèche, the Drôme, the Hautes-Alpes and
the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, depending on the years.
This trial always takes place in winter, in January.
