Today Alpine F1 announced that Esteban Ocon would be making a couple of runs at the Monte Carlo Rally. Here are the details:
Esteban Ocon is going to demo the Alpine A110S tomorrow (Thursday 21 January) with a series of special stage runs during this week’s 2021 Rally Monte Carlo.
Esteban will pass through two stages on the opening day of the 89th Rallye Monte-Carlo as the official VIP course car, starting with a private test run to fully understand the A110S in the unique conditions of the rally.
“This is a fantastic opportunity and I certainly cannot wait to experience Rallye Monte-Carlo for the first time. It’s a legendary event, a jewel in the calendar of motorsport and I know how special being part of it will be. I’m looking forward to driving the beautiful Alpine A110S. I had my first taste of the A110 in October with three laps of the Nordschleife. It was great that day; very comfortable and agile to drive. It’s born for this kind of challenge with the tight hairpins and mountain passes. Rallying has actually always been a dream for me, so driving the A110S in Monte-Carlo is a brilliant way to begin the year.”
