Monaco or officially the Principality of Monaco is a sovereign city-state right underneath France on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It’s the place where rockstars and athletes live, billionaires park their mega yachts every summer, where Hollywood celebrities holiday and the elite of high end gamblers flock. But that doesn’t really interest me. Monaco is also known for its world famous rally stage; The Monte’ Carlo Rally. It’s a tough stage that drivers look forward to all year and one of the places where automotive engineers test the latest in automotive technology developments to the limit. But I’m not interested in rally. For me Rally had its peak from the late 70s till the early 90s where companies like Lancia and Subaru made some really great cars. Now however the sport has become dull. It’s just a few small hatchbacks getting dirty. I’m not being a repugnant, but for me rally nowadays is like solving a complex calculus problem. I wasn’t really looking forward to it. I just want to get it over with and in the end; I’m not really bothered about the final result. But then that’s just my opinion.
