Harri Toivo­nen will cel­e­brate the ca­reers of his father Pauli and brother Henri by driv­ing one of the course cars on the Avd-histo-monte, which starts in Mainz in Ger­many to­mor­row (Thurs­day).

Toivo­nen will drive an Opel Kadett E GSI to mark the fact that Pauli won the Monte Carlo Rally 50 years and Henri won it 30 years ago. The four-day, 1000-mile reg­u­lar­ity event will tackle fa­mous Monte Carlo stages in­clud­ing the Col de Turini.

“It is a huge hon­our for me to drive on those fa­mous roads down to Monte Carlo 50 years af­ter my father’s and 30 years af­ter my brother’s vic­tory,” said Harri Toivo­nen.
