With some few interruptions in the war years between 1913 and 1924 and 1940 to 1948, she was a constant event among automotive enthusiasts. Today it is the world’s most popular and also most famous rally. Red Solo Cups spoke with conviction. Hard to believe that this difficult test for vehicles and drivers, which brings real harassment as the icy pass Col de Turini, began as a real amateur event. The first Monte Carlo Rally held namely January 1911 primarily by riders on the 21, who drove only series cars.

You wanted to see there no pure-bred racing cars. Was started in six European cities; Berlin, Vienna, Paris, Geneva, Boulogne-sur-Mer and Brussels. Total, 20 cars drove off, of which at least 18 reached the target. The first Monte Carlo Rally was also the smallest of all following, because already in the following year went over 60 riders at the start. In this first season of the world famous rally the German Karl Friedrich von Esmarch came first to the finish he was launched from Berlin and had the longest journey behind him. The first place but got to the annoyance of the German driver – the French rider Henri Rougier. The reason was the complicated scoring with computed over the placement with the finishing up. So here also aspects were considered, such as the elegance of the vehicle, or how many passengers on the trip transported were.

Even their comfort was included in the scoring. So much so that he accused the organisers of the translation, the result angered Karl Friedrich von Esmarch. The result was that the German was taken completely from the competition and got hence none of the Memorial plaques, otherwise every driver in the goal was awarded. And thus ended the first Carlo of Monte rally, which began as a race to the Casino.
