I'll just finish watching 2015 WRC just before 2016 starts LOL I'm waiting for Toyota to crash VW's party but I still live in the past for 2012 with the Mini.

I remember the old days when Toyota ruled. If you think VW's emissions cheat is something it is nothing compared to Toyota's WRC cheat.

And it's not just Toyota coming back in '17, Citroen's works effort will return the same season after a year off developing their new car for the same new technical regs.

Eurolamp just told me they will be running the S2000 Mini for 2016. So at least there will be a Mini in the action.

A MINI or a Mini? I thought the homologation of the Mini had run out.

That's the MINI. I assume the homologation is good until the tech regs change, no? If so, that means it's good until the end of the '16 season.

I'm not sure, but homologation goes on for some period of time after the car is no longer made. I think the Mini went out of homologation not too many years ago. Oh those cheeky FIA folks, you never know what they will do.

I believe the Homologation runs for around 7 years from date of issue which is found here .http://www.fia.com/sites/default/fil...24.07.2015.pdf the Homologation runs out in 2018......then they will be cheap enough for me to buy on Ebay LOL

The Monte is this week!

Info
Rallye Monte-Carlo
Start Date: 21.01.2016
End Date: 24.01.2016
Timezone: UTC 1
Category: WRC3
WRC2
WRC
Stages: 16 (374,89km)
Distance: 1474,34 km
Website: Automobile Club de Monaco

Route

After Thursday evening’s Monte-Carlo start outside the Casino, two stages in darkness near Digne-les-Bains punctuate the run north to Gap.
Three stages in the Hautes Alpes and Isère regions, north of Gap, form Friday’s action.
Competitors return to Monaco on Saturday via two passes of the marathon 51.55km Lardier et Valença – Faye and the classic Sisteron – Thoard.
Sunday’s final leg, as is traditional, runs in the Alpes Maritimes mountains above Monaco and features the legendary Col de Turini.

Challenge

Essentially an asphalt rally but unpredictable mountain weather brings varied conditions.
Competitors must expect snow, ice and dry asphalt - often encountering all in the same stage.
They must balance the need for grip in winter weather with that required for dry asphalt.
Shrewd tyre selection providing the best compromise for frequently changing conditions is key.
Experience and the ability to ‘read’ conditions is vital.

Car spec

Asphalt suspension.
Strange tyre selections which can include studded tyres on opposite corners of the car matched with dry weather slick rubber.
Two spare tyres is normal.
Additional headlight pods for thursday´s night stages.

History

Rallye Monte-Carlo is the WRC’s jewel in the crown and the oldest in the calendar.
First run in 1911, it was designed to promote Monte-Carlo as a tourist destination, with competitors starting from different European cities before gathering in Monaco.
The 1966 rally became famed for its controversial outcome when giant-killing Mini Coopers claimed the top three places before being disqualified for alleged infringements of headlight regulations.

What’s new for 2016

Each day includes a new stage compared to the 2015 rally.
Friday’s night’s 20.23km Barles – Seyne test has never been run in this direction.
Saturday’s Saint Leger les Mélèzes – La Batie Neuve stage crosses the Ancelle ski slopes.
Only the top 60 classified competitors will start Sunday’s final leg.

Don’t miss

Col de Turini. One of the sport’s iconic locations, where enormous crowds will gather to watch competitors cross the mountain summit in the La Bollene Vesubie – Peira Cava test in the final leg. An incredible atmosphere and a ‘must-do’ for visitors.
Sunday’s finish outside the Palace in Monaco, with monarch Prince Albert presenting the prizes.
