14th Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique - Duct Tape


The 14th Monte Carlo Rally Historic arrived at Port Hercule last weekend. The cars had started from Glasgow, Marrakech or Warsaw and for the really old cars with lesser engine capacity, there were intermediate starts in Barcelona and Rheims. All the cars were built between 1955 and 1979.

This year Monaco celebrated the 100th year of the Monte Carlo Rally and this 'historic' rally (the 14th) was very much part of the celebration.

As you can see the one thing no driver could do without was a roll of duct tape - or is it duck tape?

More cars tomorrow...

Hahaha, it's duct tape. That is awesome! BTW, professional photographers are also often sporting duct tape according to an article I just read. ;)
