  • Description

    THE 1965 MONTE CARLO RALLY -- TOUGHEST MOTORING EVENT OF ITS TYPE IN THE WORLD -- GOT WELL UNDERWAY TODAY (SATURDAY), AS DRIVERS FROM EIGHT WIDELY SEPARATE POINTS, AS FAR APART AS LISBON AND MINSK, BEGAN TO MAKE THEIR VARIOUS WAYS TO MONTE CARLO. DRIVERS FROM STOCKHOLM BEGAN THEIR JOURNEY YESTERDAY (FRIDAY).

    IN ALL, MORE THAN 250 CARS ARE TAKING PART IN THIS 34TH 'MONTE'. APART FROM STOCKHOLM, THEY STARTED FROM LISBON, PARIS, MONTE CARLO, LONDON, FRANKFURT, ATHENS, MINSK AND WARSAW. SOME 46 MAKES ARE REPRESENTED, WITH THE MANUFACTURERS' WORKS TEAM, PUTTING UP A TREMENDOUS BATTLE FOR THE COMMERCIAL LAURELS WHICH INEVITABLY FOLLOW A WIN IN THE MOST FAMOUS OF ALL RALLIES.

    THE EVENT IS DUE TO FINISH NEXT SATURDAY -- JANUARY 23RD. THIS YEAR, THE EVENT HAS BEEN MADE EVEN MORE ARDUOUS THAN USUAL. THE ROUND-THE-HOUSES-RACE' IN MONACO, NORMALLY HELD ON THE LAST DAY, HAS BEEN DROPPED AND REPLACED BY ANOTHER 'MIN' RALLY' IN ITSELF. THE FIRST 120 CARS WILL NOW COMPETE OVER 380-MILES (548-KMS) OF MOUNTAIN ROADS AROUND MONTE CARLO, INCLUDING NINE SPECIAL STAGES AGAINST THE CLOCK DURING ONE NIGHT.
