The Monte returns to the WRC

While the World Motorsport Council’s decision to reinstate the Bahrain Grand Prix will receive vast media coverage they also made a significant announcement for rallying: the Monte Carlos Rally will open the 2012 season.

The world renowned rally has not been used by the World Rally Championship since 2008; it has instead hosed the opening round of the IRC. Next season the “Monte” will be the opening round for both championships but it remains to be seen if the WRC will allow the rally the same freedom afforded to it in recent years by the IRC.
