The Col de Turini
No Monte Carlo Rally would be complete without its sting in the tail. That sting is the shape of the road from Sospel to La Bollene.
That mountain pass is called the Col de Turini. The start and finish of that stage can and often do change location and direction, but it always includes the junction of the D2566 and M70. That’s the Col.
Being one of the Monte’s more southerly stages, the Turini’s found as often without snow as it is with these days. But, if anything, it makes it even harder. Why? ‘ Verglas.’ Black ice.
In the 1970s and 1980s Turini was done in the dead of night and it was in those days the legend, “the night of Turini” was created.
Pinpoint accuracy, bravery, lady luck and the fans on your side. That’s what the Col de Turini calls for. DE
