DEDICATED TO PERFORMANCE AND DRIVING PLEASURE.
This movie was shot with Jean "Jeannot" Ragnotti,who is a French former rally driver for Renault in the World Rally Championship. He conquered the Monte Carlo Rally in 1981,[1] what was the first turbo victory in the history of the WRC, alongside compatriot Jean-Marc AndriƩ against the might of the ultimate four-wheel-drive upstart, the Audi Quattro. In the following season, he took his Renault 5 Turbo to victory at the Tour de Corse. The Maxi version of the same Renault 5 was to reign again on the asphalt stages of European rallying, when in 1985, Ragnotti claimed the Tour de Corse again with Group B rallying at its zenith; a win that came on debut of Renault 5 Maxi Turbo. The 1985 Rothmans Tour de Corse would also prove to be a tragic affair after the fatal crash of Attilio Bettega on SS4 (Zerubia) of the event.In the 1990s, Ragnotti continued to drive for Renault, this time in their front-wheel drive Clio Maxi.
