Renault Mégane Maxi Kit car - Jean Ragnotti maximum attack!
Jean "Jeannot" Ragnotti (born 29 August 1945 in Pernes-les-Fontaines,
Vaucluse), is a French former rally driver for Renault in the World Rally
Ranking among his achievements are his conquering of the Monte Carlo Rally
in 1981, what was the first turbo
victory in the history of the WRC, alongside compatriot Jean-Marc Andrié
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.
