Monte Carlo Rally 2024
Back in Gap for the 92nd edition, from 22 to 28 January

70 competitors, 14 mountain passes, 17 special stages spread over five French departments, and a total length of 300 kilometres.
These are the numbers for the 92nd edition of the historic Monte Carlo Rally, the inaugural event in the FIA World Rally Championship 2024 which, in search of snowy bends and added excitement, expands to new latitudes and altitudes with a return to the Hautes-Alpes, specifically to Gap.

So there was no question about the participation of Sébastien Ogier, who holds the record for rally wins, having taken the top place on the podium nine times. Counter to all expectations, Ogier – a native of Gap – is back to defend his title at the wheel of a Toyota Yaris Rally1 Hybrid.

An intense and unpredictable battle is on the cards between Ogier and his teammate Elfyn Evans (who came second to Sébastien Ogier in the 2023 edition of the race) as his main rival at the starting line, and also with Ott Tanäk (World Champion in 2019) and Thierry Neuville (winner of the rally in 2020).

Monday 22, Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 are reserved for route recces (in road cars).
But the eagerly-awaited start of the race happens on Thursday 25 at 16:52 from the square outside Monte Carlo Casino, taking in the first two special stages by night before arriving in Gap.
The programme for Friday 26 consists of 105 km of special stages in the mountains east of Gap; but the most challenging day of all is Saturday 27, with three special stages repeated twice and a route covering 120 km.
Sunday 28 January: the race returns to Monaco for the final three special stages, including the Col de Turini, with estimated arrival time in Monte Carlo at 14:15.

Sky Sports will broadcast the key moments live, including the final Power Stage. Live streaming on SkyGo and Now.
