1997 Peugeot 406 Supertourisme
- Showcase car for technical expertise
- Champion of France and Germany
- Completely overhauled car
- Ex Laurent Aïello, Juan Manuel Fangio junior, William David
With the new 406, which appeared in 1995, Peugeot sought to demonstrate
that the saloon could not only perform well as a road car, but also on the
track. The firm from Sochaux decided to try its hand in the rigorous German
Championship. This is where the car we are offering first entered the
scene. It was prepared to compete in the German Supertouring Championship
for the 1997 season.
The chassis was built by Peugeot Sport: major work was carried out on the
body with the installation of a multi-tubular roll cage, front and rear
competition suspension and Brembo 8 piston disc brakes. Work on the engine
was carried out by renowned preparer PIPO: the 2-litre block with aluminium
head produced 310 bhp and was mated with a 6-speed sequential gearbox. The
owner has told us that this 406 Supertourisme then made its debut in 1997,
driven by Laurent Aïello, up against the official BMW and Audi entries.
With jaw-dropping results: in its first season, the car won the coveted
competition. The following year, it finished second in the SUDAM
championship in Latin America, driven by Juan Manuel Fangio Junior (the
nephew...). The car finished off an amazing career in the French
Championnat Supertourisme, again performing with brio. This time, William
David won the Championship title in 1999 and 2000.
Here is a genuine factory car, with an outstanding racing provenance that
has shown it is capable of terrific performances. It deserves its place on
Dramatic STW Final 1999 - Title Decider
The classic STW final race of 1999 at the Nurburgring. This decided the
championship that year. During the last lap of the race at Nurburgring, Uwe
Alzen, Christian Abt's main rival for the championship was leading, with
Abt 2nd. As they reached the chicane Alzen was coming up to lap Abt's
teammate Kris Nissen and they both crashed. Abt was now in the lead but at
the last corner, Alzen's teammate Roland Asch, who was right behind the
trio and had already been black flagged in the race, crashed into Abt,
taking him out. Alzen limped to the checkered flag in 2nd place and handing
him the championship. But not for long as several weeks later, an amateur
video proved that Asch crashed into Abt deliberately, and as a result, the
DMSB, the German governing body sanctioning the STW annulled the last lap
of the race, handing the championship back to Abt.
Amazing Super Touring Car race @ Silverstone Classic 2014
You're onboard with the class winning #29 1991 BMW E30 M3 Group A of Jan
Bot during the sunday race of the JET Super Touring Car race on the
Silverstone Classic event. Spectacular touring car action, trying to mix it
up with the faster stuff and
pushing it to the limit.
In the first corner, John Cleland in his Vauxhall Vectra get's sideways and
causes chaos in the field. Later on, Patrick Watts in his Peugeot super
tourer is coming up from behind. Never a dull moment!
We ended up 14th in this incredibly competitive field of supertourers.
