The entry for Dan Allven and I into the 2017 Rallye Monte Carlo Historique has been submitted to the Automobile Club of Monaco (ACM). The ACM usually gets more entries into this rally than they have room for in the rally. We are hopeful, but confident that our entry will be accepted. We will find out if our entry has been accepted at the end of November when the entries close for the 2017 Rallye Monte Carlo Historique.
For the 2017 Rallye Monte Carlo Historique, Dan has selected Bad Homburg, Germany as the starting city. This is the same city that we started at last year in this event. We enjoyed the hospitality that Bad Homburg laid out for the rally competitors and it appears that 2017 will be very similar. The poster for Bad Homburg relating to the Rallye Monte Carlo Historique is shown below.
An advantage for me with respect to selecting Bad Homburg as the starting city is that it is just a short distance from Frankfurt to Bad Homburg so getting to Bad Homburg is not particularly difficult.
In addition to the 80 cars that will be starting from Bad Homburg, we would be joined by 10 cars that will be starting from Stockholm and 10 cars that will be starting from Copenhagen. All of these 100 cars would continue in the rally from Bad Homburg at the same time. The Stockholm and Copenhagen cars will start on the road just before the Bad Homburg entered cars.
Dan’s rally car, a 1961 Volvo PV544, is in Sweden at this time having some refurbishing done to it. Things seem to be moving along quite well.
