Retro Alpine!

Perpetually on my "List of cars I'd like to drive some day",  five Renault Alpines A-110 from the Renault Classic collection will be taking part in this year's Rally Monte-Carlo Historique.  

Forty year ago, Alpine-Renault scored a 1-2-3 finish at the Monte and went on to win what was the first WRC manufacturers title.

The winning crew from 1973,  Jean Claude Andruet and Michele "Biche" Petit will be leading the group.  Madame "Biche" should be quite familiar with some of the roads, she just finished competing in the 2013  Rally Monte Carlo as a navigator in a Mitsubishi Evo IX!

  2. Gee... I wonder where they got the idea for the bit on the Twizy??? I'm surprised Jezza hasn't declared war.
