HERO-ERA has launched the 2021 Winter Challenge to Monte Carlo, scheduled to run from 7 to 11 February from a start in Reims. The organisers expect that COVID-19 restrictions will not impact the five-day event, which promises a top quality route and winter rallying at its best, as crews tackle French roads steeped in motor sport history. These will include some high altitude, and therefore likely snow-bound, sections, like the Col-de-Turini. The event will include night sections and the route will take in regions last used in 2005, before the finish in Monte Carlo.
This 30-year-old event was first conceived by the late Philip Young, a pioneer in historic rallying. Entries are now open at heroevents.eu.
