Storm forces final day changes for Monte

Next year’s season-opening Rallye Monte-Carlo (21 – 24 January) will feature a new-look finale following severe flooding in the Alpes-Maritimes hills above Monaco which traditionally host the closing leg. Rally organisers have moved Sunday’s closing leg further west to avoid the flood hit area, meaning a new Wolf Power Stage and the absence of the famous Col de Turini speed test from the itinerary. The final leg will now comprise a double run of the 12.93km Puget-Théniers – La Penne stage and the 14.31km test from Briançonnet to Entrevaux. There will be no service between the loops and the latter will form the bonus points-paying live TV Wolf Power Stage.
