Video: Peugeot at Pikes Peak


In today’s lesson, we will learn about the lost art of “French Rallying”. French Rallying was the art of using mostly 4WD and AWD, turbocharged French vehicles to make one’s way around a gravel course in less time with more flair than the competitor. One famous place where French Rallying took place was Pikes Peak, which is in Colorado, USA. The Peugoet 405 T16 was a mid-engined, four-wheel-drive, rally banshee in the late 80′s and it was the king of French Rallying at the time. Enjoy this well-documented case of French Rallying because you just kind find this combination of driving at the limit with unreliable French cars anymore.
