    Rauno Altonen and Paddy Hopkirk are paying a visit to the twisting streets of Monte Carlo, where they celebrated their greatest victories at the Rallye Monte Carlo in 1963/64.

    Different to the Sixties this time the duo drives a brand new MINI John Cooper Works Cabrio. The car and the tricky corners bring back lots of memories, go-kart feeling and driving excitement. You can see the rallye legends driving through Monte Carlo passing famous places such as Col de Braus, Col de Torini.

    That was FUN! I love the clip at around 2:40 where they're cutting through a town and there's a girl peeking around the corner of a building watching for the next car to come past within inches. That's a great place to watch the race!
