The Road To Monte Carlo is a 1960 documentary film about the legendary Rallye Monte Carlo – a race only marginally less famous than its Formula 1 equivalent. In 1960 the race encompassed a huge assortment of motor cars from Europe and further afield, half a dozen Minis made their first major race outing at this event – only 6 months after the car had been officially revealed to the public for the first time.

The film runs 14 minutes and 51 seconds in total, making it a reasonably quick watch and a fascinating insight into motorsport in the mid-20th century. If you’d like to see more European rallies from the era you can click here to see the 1959 Alpine Rally.
