Started in 1930, symbolic restoration in 2011

The first Electric Marathon in 2011 became the symbolic restoration of the traditions of Star Race rally Tallinn – Monte Carlo, which took place between 1930 and 1939. The idea of the modern marathon race for cars in public roads belongs to Prince Albert II of Monaco and Honorary Consul of Monaco in Estonia, Mr. Jüri Tamm. As a result, the rally was reborn in a new format and became the race for battery electric vehicles (BEV).
