The Automobile Club of Monaco has reminded competitors in the forthcoming Monte-Carlo Rally and the Monte-Carlo Historic Rally that it is strictly forbidden to tamper with “trees, poles, mail boxes, and houses” while on pre-rally reconnaissance missions.

“The Automobile Club of Monaco has received a lot of complaints from residents and
 community organisations. All competitors seen to disrespect these environmental laws, will
 immediately be excluded from the Rally,” the club said.

The 86th Monte-Carlo Rally starts on January 22 and finishes on January 28, with a route that is 50 percent different from last year’s course.

The 21st Monte-Carlo Historic Rally starts on January 31 and ends on February 7, once again pitting some of the world’s best drivers against the demanding conditions of the high country of the south of France.
