The Automobile Club de Monaco has confirmed that there will be radical changes to the Rallye Monte-Carlo route for the 2021 FIA World Rally Championship event. 

As per previous years, the rally will run out of Gap with the route changed as much as 85% from the 2020 rally. The shakedown is moving to a Thursday morning slot, which is more traditionally known for the WRC, and there will of course be a night stage to start proceedings. 

Three new stages will run twice on the first full day of the rally, to the west of Gap, which will be the longest day of the event with nearly 128 kilometres of stage miles. 

Saturday is to the east of Gap with three stages in the mountains before heading back to service at Gap before heading southwards to Monte Carlo. 

Sunday will see the teams head to the mountains from Monte Carlo to contest two loops of La Maīris – Moulinet and Col St-Jean – Col de l’Orme.
