Blythswood Square was the home of the Royal Scottish Automobile Club, now the Blythswood Square five-star hotel.

More than 50 period cars will leave from the square to travel over 2,000 km to Monte Carlo. The previous day, on Wednesday 26 January, a Grand Gala Dinner will be addressed by Stuart Turner, who was competition manager at BMC when Minis were regularly winning the Monte Carlo Rally.
