We take to social media to look at WRC’s Rally Monte Carlo


As the WRC started yet another season, we thought we would look round online to see what people were sharing on Pinterest and on Twitter.  While the Banner photo is from Michelin, the photos we see are all embedded from others online.  The event was another great one and setting aside all the trouble that has gone on with the WRC of late, we saw a great rally.  Drama to the end with changing weather conditions and a great debut for the VW Golf.  Loeb again was peerless…

Just one note, the first picture, it seems to be popular opinion that the bottom crashed DS3 is Conrad Rautenbach in 2012, not Mikko Hirvonen in 2013.  Either way, Citroen does not have luck in testing for the Monte.

The rally in brief

Citroën’s Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena claimed their 77th world rally victory and seventh Rallye Monte-Carlo win this evening, the multiple World Rally Champions claiming the silverware by one minute 39.9 seconds. Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia finished a fine second in the debut competitive outing of the Volkswagen Polo R WRC and Dani Sordo and co-driver Carlos del Barrio rounded off the podium positions in another Citroën DS3 WRC.

With the rally now based in Monaco, the crews headed out of the Principality this afternoon for some of the most famous stages of the event, which were scheduled to include three runs over the legendary Col de Turini and two through the Lantosque-Luceram stage. However, the final two stages of the rally were cancelled for safety reasons due to the huge volume of spectators and difficult access conditions
