Star-studded entry list marks Monte Carlo Rally centenary

Leading drivers from F1, rallying and sportscars will descend on Monte Carlo in a few days in a bid to win world rallying's greatest event.

The Monte Carlo Rally is the sport's jewel in the crown. If you want comparisons, think football World Cup, the Ashes and Wimbledon and you'll get an idea of how big the Monte is. Which makes this year's event even bigger as the rally celebrates its centenary with an entry list that was heavily over-subscribed.
