Mayor enters Monte Carlo eRallye


Three Monaco City Hall crews will take part in the second edition of the Monte Carlo eRallye, organised by the Automobile Club of Monaco, from October 25 to 29.

Mayor George Marsan and Jacques Pastor, Deputy Mayor-Responsible for Sports and Recreation, will compete in a Toyota Mirai Hydrogen made available by the Atomic Energy Commission.

Marjorie Crovetto-Harroch, Deputy Mayor-Responsible for Life, Environment and Sustainable Development, and André J. Campana, Deputy Mayor-Responsible for the Exotic Garden, will drive a Renault Zoé made available by the Renault concession in Nice.

The third crew will be composed of communal employees Serge Pastor and Christophe Ponset. Quadruple winners of the Challenge of the communities at the Monte-Carlo Rally of Energies Nouvelles in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, and third overall in 2015 and second in the overall standings of the Monte Carlo eRally in 2016, the duo will this time target victory aboard a Volkswagen eGolf 100 percent electric loaned by Volkswagen Auto Koncept Monaco.

The start of the second edition of the eRallye Monte-Carlo is scheduled for October 25 in Fontainebleau for a journey of more than 1,000 kilometres via the circuit of Nevers Magny-Cours, Rodez, Ales, and Aix-en-Provence before the traditional “Night of the Turini”.
