The service park for next year’s Monte Carlo Rally will return to the town of Gap after being based in Monaco for the last two editions.
Gap, which hosted the service park for the Monte Carlo Rally between 2014 and 2021, will be the event’s base again for its 2024 edition.
The event organiser, the ACM (Automobile Club Monaco), announced that the rally’s base will relocate to Gap due to major works and the space required for the event to run from the Principality. The rally’s official start, finish and prize-giving ceremony remain in Monaco.
ACM’s statement: “Due to major works, it was 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 department, 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.”
The ACM further confirmed that 2024 Monte Carlo will run from 22-28 January. The route of the event is set to be announced next month.
