Col de Turini

Video taken on Rico Rally ‘Run to the Sun’ in June 2014.

On Rico Rally we regularly take on one of the world’s greatest driving roads, the Col de Turini – a high mountain pass in the Alps near Sospel, between Moulinet and La Bollène-Vésubie.

It is famous for a stage of the Monte Carlo Rally which is held on the tight road with its many hairpin turns. Until a few years ago, the Col De Turini was also driven at night, with thousands of fans watching the “Night of the Long Knives” as it was called, due to the strong high beam lights cutting through the night.
Here’s a short video of Fifth Gear presenter Vicki Butler-Henderson hustling the brand new 335bhp Audi RS3 along the iconic Col de Turini rally stage in Southern France.
