The original Monte-Carlo rally was conceived as an endurance test for the automobile and driver, first running in 1911. It grew to be an event which had multiple starting points all over Europe. The 2012 Monte-Carlo historic rally had start points in Barcelona, Glasgow, Oslo, Reims, Torino and Warsaw. The concentration runs met in Monaco and then all the competitors ran roads in the area including the famous Col de Turini.
Our Mini Monte is just for fun. We start in two places in southern Ontario, meeting at a common point in the middle of the event and finishing on a common route.
There is a little break at the mid-point where you can get refreshments and use the washroom. The finish is at the Pinehurst Lake Conservation Area where we’re having a BBQ.
