Monte Carlo Classic Car Rally

West Dunbartonshire will host one of motorsport's most iconic and world-renowned events, the Monte Carlo Classic Rally when it departs from Clydebank on January 30th!

About Monte Carlo Classic Car Rally

The world-famous event will see dozens of classic vehicles flagged off from Aurora Avenue in the town and is expected to bring thousands of visitors to the area.

The cars will set off through the streets of Clydebank on Wednesday, 30 January, as they begin their 1,500 mile dash to Monaco, in the South of France.

It is the second time the town has hosted the prestigious race, with people coming from all over the country to watch it start in Clydebank in 2012.

West Dunbartonshire was offered the opportunity to host the official start line once again after establishing a drivers’ stopover in Dalmuir Park for last year’s event.

Douglas Anderson, the UK co-ordinator of the event and the man responsible for bringing the Monte start back to Scotland a few years ago, is delighted: “It is wonderful to have the Scottish start returning to Clydeside. The event grows in stature every year and we’re confident the 2019 event will attract another record number of entries and crowds to match to wave them off on their drive to the sunshine in the South of France. They’ll all be sharing the magic of the Monte.”

The event, which takes place on 30 January, will see classic cars available for viewing by the public from 3.30pm, with the rally beginning at 6.00pm.

Both the Historique and Classique events are staged by the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM) and take place entirely on open public roads.

The event runs over eight days finishing in Monte Carlo on February 7.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Monte Carlo Classic Car Rally are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
