    E-Rally

    E-Rally Monte-Carlo is an authentic regularity road race reserved for 100% electric and 100% hydrogen-powered rally cars. It is now very appreciated by car manufacturers and race teams who are eager to show, in a real and tough environment, the technological and innovative potential of their electric vehicles.

    The rally starts and ends each day in Monaco, but it stays exciting partially thanks to secret routes — the itinerary of each stage (the route they drive each day) is only revealed 1 hour before the start of each rally. Sometimes they drive into Italy, sometimes into the mountains, and sometimes along the French Riviera.

    Dates: Every year in late October (check events calendar for exact dates).
    Ticket Cost: Depends on where you watch from; mostly free.

    Just three days after the finish of the Monte-Carlo Rally, the competitors in the Historic Monte-Carlo Rally race will take on an equally testing challenge. The historic version of the Rally is reserved for cars that took part in the Monte-Carlo Rally from 1911 to 1983.
