The 1971 British Rally Champion Chris Sclater and Monte historian Michael Frostick report on the motoring event of the year as it happens.
For the past nine days, 300 of the best rally crews in the world have been driving from all over Europe through winter snow and ice to the sunshine of Monte Carlo. Up against 38 German BMWs and 30 French Renault Alpines are a dozen British cars, among them a Ford Escort Mexico driven by the 26-year-old British National Rally Champion CHRIS SCLATER. Starting with him from Glasgow is Wheelbase reporter MICHAEL FROSTICK , a Monte competitor since 1954 and author of The History of the Monte Carlo Rally.
Tonight they tell the story of the 1972 Monte from the driving seat and examine some of the reasons for the event's popularity and prestige.
