Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique

A look back at an event full of emotion

Renault 5 Rallye Monte-Carlo 2022

A year of celebrations

Launched in 1972, Renault 5 is celebrating its 50th birthday this year. To mark the occasion, Renault entered two Renault 5 Alpine Group 2s and a Renault 5 Turbo. These two models stood out in their day in competitions and are enormously popular with the general public.



A fourth car was also part of the official Renault team: a Renault 17 Gordini. This car celebrated its 50th birthday in 2021 and should have taken part in last year’s Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique. The 2021 event was cancelled due to the pandemic. Renault 17 came back with a bang this year!
