Rally cars going full pelt up Monza’s historic banking isn’t something you see every day. Which is why today we’re taking a moment to look back at the WRC’s recent visit to this epicentre of noise and speed. It is, in a word, fantastic.

The 2021 WRC season came to a close for the second year running at Monza, as did the championship fight between Elfyn Evans and Sébastien Ogier. Yes, for two years in a row the WRC title has been settled on the track, historic banking and roads around the historic Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, and on both occasions it was Ogier who emerged the victor. It’s a shame Monza won’t feature on the calendar again in 2022 but we’re hopeful that, one day, it might make a return.
Watching WRC cars dance on tiny roads is always a treat, and hearing them do so without commentary or any other interference is the best way to do it. And if you love the WRC, make sure you read our list of the 10 best WRC drivers of 2020.
