E-Rallye Monte-Carlo
Valence > Monaco
93 km chronométrés / Timed

Over sixteen hours on the road, nearly 500 kilometers to cover between Valence and Monaco, four Regularity Stages. In other words, this 3rd Leg of the 6th E-Rallye Monte-Carlo will probably go down in history!

The Baronnies Provençales, the ascent of the giant of Provence, the iconic Mont-Ventoux, then the Verdon National Park and finally the confines of the lake of Saint-Cassien to finish the day, the competitors had to surpass themselves sportingly to face the many difficulties on the menu for this 3rd day.

The faces could certainly seem tired this evening, entering the Terrasses du Soleil parc fermé in Monte-Carlo, but the radiant faces of the competitors said a lot about the endless day that they had just completed! On the eve of the last Leg, Jacques Pastor / Fulvio Gazzola (Kia EV6) still top of the overall standings.

RS8: Peugeot, VW and Hyundai, three early birds

The Peugeot e-208 of Jean-François Macario and Ludovic Emond, ahead of Damien Caputo and Jérôme Franceschin’s Volkswagen ID5, followed by a hydrogen-powered Hyundai Nexo driven by the  winner of Monte-Carlo Rally 1988 in the WRC, Bruno Saby (in a mythical Lancia Delta HF), with Pascal Serre as co-driver for this 2022 edition.

This trio of serious customers were the best in RS8, between Chastel-Arnaud and Crupies (20 km). Not enough to upset the overall ranking since Jacques Pastor and Fulvio Gazzola, in their Kia EV6, took 4th place and consolidated their leadership, pending further events…

RS9: BMW ahead of Renault and Kia

RS9 between Beaumont-du-Ventoux and Sault (29.9km) allowed BMW to open its counter of wins in the Reguarity Specials of this 6th E-Rallye Monte-Carlo. Philippe Segura Morote and Xavier Baux, in their BMW IX entered by Force Publique Monaco, finished ahead of Michelin-starred chef Michel Chabran, on board with Eric Mallen in a Renault Mégane sporting the colors of the eborn charging network.

The Renaults were in good shape in this RS9, the most expected stage and culminating point of this rally, at Col des Tempêtes, just a bit lower than Mont Ventoux (1,830m). The Zoé of Nicolas Pery and Marina Depresseux took 3rd place tied with the Kia Niro of Slovenian crew Franko Spacapan-Sebastjan Kobal. But no change happened in the overall standings since Jacques Pastor and Fulvio Gazzola (Kia EV6) retained control of the lead, one stage away from the end of this very intense Day 3, on the road to Monaco.

RS10: BMW again, tied with Skoda and VW

The third Regularity Stage (out of 4) on the menu of this very long 3rd day, between Aiguines and Trigance (29.2 km), was the first of the rally to be contested in the Var department and BMW did it again: Philippe Segura and Xavier Baux, in their BMW IX entered by Monaco Public Force (which brings together firefighters and carabinieri from the Principality), were the best again, as in RS9 on Mont-Ventoux at the end of the morning.

This time, they finished tied with two other crews who had not yet had the honors of a special podium during this 6th E-Rallye Monte-Carlo: Christian Grimaldi and Jean-Baptiste Loty (Skoda Enyaq) on one hand, Bernard Heine and Laurent Secretin (VW ID3) on the other, entered by the Belgium VW Club. Once past the Trigance checkpoint, the 53 crews still had a SR11 to take, between Montauroux and Tanneron, before heading to Monaco.

With the Kia EV6 of Jacques Pastor and Fulvio Gazzola still at the top of the overall standings, ahead of the BMW i4 of Olivier Campana and Nicolas Milanesio (2nd). And with the excellent female duo made up of Karel Colibert and Nathalie Zbinden (VW ID5) in 3rd place, thanks to their remarkable consistency at the front since the start on Wednesday.

RS11: Peugeot and Renault tied!

The last Regularity Special (RS11) of the 3rd day, between Montauroux and Tanneron, was only 13 km long, in the Var.

It ended in a perfect tie for first place, between the Peugeot e-208 of Audrey Melice and Yvan Bard, and the Renault Megane of Emilien Le Borgne and Romain Montembault. There was also a tie for 3rd place in this RS11, between another Peugeot e-208, that of Gilles Gard and Alain Gazal, and two VWs: the ID5 of Iwan Kneuts and Ken Divjak, another crew entered by Belgium VW Club, and the ID5 of Karel Colibert and Nathalie Zbinden, once again in the leading pack.

On Friday evening, before the four specials of the 4th and last day, the situation is unchanged compared to Thursday evening: the Kia EV6 of Jacques Pastor and Fulvio Gazzola still leading, ahead of the best female crew of this 6th E-Monte-Carlo Rally, by far, made up of Karel Colibert and Nathalie Zbinden, the two Monegasques.


KONI and its history

Koni: the shock absorber of the future is almost ready! In its beginnings, the Koni company did not yet manufacture shock absorbers, but leather accessories for horses. Then, at the dawn of Second World War, Koni started to work on shock absorbers, sensing that the auto industry was destined to greatness...

The approach is the same today, as clean vehicles are looking at a bright and promising future. To refine their products, Koni, represented on the 6th E-Rallye Monte-Carlo by Stéphane Ducreau (Director for France), relies on the experience of Bruno Saby. A "smart" damper is also in the pipes... which will be able to recover the energy generated by friction and the Joule effect! A beautiful project!

eborn, a charging network that keeps growing…

A partner for the past five years of E-Rallye Monte-Carlo, Laurent Chareyre, Director of Communication for the eborn network, is particularly involved in the installation of charging stations in rural areas of the Southern Alps.

With three crews sporting the colors of eborn in this 6th edition, , including a premium ambassador in the person of Michelin-starred Chef Michel Chabran, eborn wishes to demonstrate that travelling through the hinterland is no longer an obstacle for electric vehicles.

Leader in the South-East of France in terms of charging stations, eborn is not far from having won its bet. And eborn drivers shone on Friday, in the first two stages of Day 3: a win for Jean-François Macario and Ludovic Emond (Peugeot e-208) in RS8, then a 2nd place for Michel Chabran and  Eric Mallen (Renault Mégane) in RS9.

Monaco Yacht Club, the perfect setting for these two jewels!
BMW is proving one more time that performance, resilience and respect for our planet are not contradictory at all, and fully compatible, in fact. The results of the Bavarian brand in this 6th E-Rallye Monte-Carlo are a perfect demonstration of this.  

Arrival of the competitors from 10:30 pm in the Principality of Monaco after a long day on the roads. After a night that already looks short, they will leave tomorrow at 07:30 from the Terrasses du Soleil for a final stage.


The final stage of the 2022 the E-Rallye Monte-Carlo will be held tomorrow. Start at 07:30 from the Terrasses du Soleil in the Principality of
