A little Monte magic

Here’s a little treasure from the archives of British Pathé – the start-to-finish story of the 1960 Monte Carlo Rally.

With this year’s event just days away it’s nice to be reminded of what makes the Monte so special. Of all the initiatives that M. Todt has come up with in his time as FIA president, one can only hope that his wish to restore an element of the driving marathon to world championship events, rather than daily loops from a central service area, will come to pass.

In the meantime let’s enjoy things as they were in the days when the Mini-Minor was yet to be Coopered!
