    Background: THIRTY-ONE ENTRANTS FOR THE MONTE CARLO RALLY THIS YEAR STARTED FROM DOVER. FOR THEM, THE FIRST STINT ON THE RALLY WAS A ONE HUNDRED YARD DRIVE FROM THE DOCKSIDE CHECKPOINT TO THE CROSS-CHANNEL FERRY.

    THIS YEAR, FOR THE FIRST TIME, DRIVERS STARTING THE RALLY FROM BRITAIN WERE STARTED FROM THE DOVER DOCKSIDE INSTEAD OF DRIVING THROUGH THE COUNTRY. OF THE 31 DOVER CARS 25 WERE BRITISH, FOUR FRENCH AND TWO ITALIAN.

    OVER TWO HUNDRED DRIVERS BE COMPETING IN THIS YEAR'S RALLY -- THE WORLD'S TOUGHEST DRIVING TEST. FIRST COMPETITORS AWAY WERE THOSE LEAVING OSLO, NORWAY, LAST NIGHT. THE LAST, LEAVING MONTE CARLO ON A ROUND TRIP, WILL START TODAY AT NOON. THE OTHER STARTING POINTS ARE ATHENS, FRANKFURT, LISBON, WARSAW AND RHEIMS.

    THE DOVER STARTERS LEFT AT THREE O'CLOCK THIS MORNING IN GOOD WEATHER CONDITIONS.
