A Little History: Famed Monegasque Winners
Did you know that the Monte Carlo Rally has been won by one of the most famous Monegasque names in motor history. You will be able to guess when I tell you he also is a Monegasque winner of the most famous Grand Prix race in the world … the Monaco Grand Prix. Yes, you guessed it, Louis Chiron who set three records with one Monte Carlo Rally victory.
Louis Chiron who won in 1954 was not only the first Monegasque winner, but also the oldest winner aged 54, and the first former winner of the Monaco Grand Prix to win Rallye Monte Carlo. Three-in-one!
Monegasques have also distinguished themselves in the modern era of the Monte Carlo Rally breaking records as well as in the World Rally Championship. Remember this name, it is Daniel Elena. This is a name not so often sung from the rooftops as Louis Chiron or Charles Leclerc for that matter but he has excelled at the very apex of Rally Racing.
Monaco’s own Daniel Eléna was Sébastien Loeb’s faithful co-pilot for his seven wins in the “Monte”, between 2003 and 2013.
Daniel Elena (born 26 October 1972) was also known as “Danos” . Between Monegasque Danos and Sebastien Loeb, the pair have also won the World Rally Championship (WRC) nine times with Citroën, later competing with Hyundai. Their 79 wins together make Danos the co-driver with the most victories in the history of the World Rally Championship (WRC).
