Renault Clio Maxi Kit Car avec Jean Ragnotti - with pure engine sounds
This is a official video of Jean Ragnotti with his Renault Clio Maxi Kit car.
The rally cars that produced the most memorable sounds of the late 1990s were definitely the notorius little hornets called the kit cars. Fast, nimble and light - no wonder the WRC class took a beating when these FWD bad boys were hammered to the limit on dry tarmac with top asphalt aces behind the wheel.
This compilation features the best bits of the Kit Car's Rally Championship.
Audi Quattro - Group B, the Days of Madness

Group B was introduced by the FIA in 1982 as replacement for both Group 4 (modified grand touring) and Group 5 (touring prototypes) cars.
Group A referred to production-derived vehicles limited in terms of power, weight, allowed technology and overall cost. The base model had to be mass produced (5000 units/year) and had to have 4 seats. Group A was aimed at ensuring a large number of privately-owned entries in races.
By contrast, Group B had few restrictions on technology, design and the number of cars required for homologation to compete—200, less than other series. Weight was kept as low as possible, high-tech materials were permitted, and there were no restrictions on Boost, which turned out to mean almost unlimited power. The category was aimed at car manufacturers by promising outright competition victories and the subsequent publicity opportunities without the need for an existing production model. There was also a Group C, which had a similarly lax approach to chassis and engine development, but with strict rules on overall weight and maximum fuel load.
Group B was initially a very successful concept, with many manufacturers joining the premier World Rally Championship, and increased spectator numbers. But the cost of competing quickly rose, and the performance of the cars proved too much, resulting in a series of fatal crashes. As a consequence Group B was cancelled at the end of 1986 and Group A regulations became the standard for all cars until the advent of World Rally Cars in 1997.
In the following years Group B found a niche in the European Rallycross Championship, with cars such as the MG Metro 6R4 and the Ford RS200 competing as late as 1992. For 1993, the FIA replaced the Group B models with prototypes that had to be based on existing Group A cars, but still followed the spirit of Group B, with low weight, 4WD, high turboBoost pressure and staggering amounts of power.
Peugeot 306 Maxi Kit Car - Pure Sounds with Panizzi & Delecour
Pure Peugeot 306 Maxi Kit Car with Gilles Panizzi and Francois Delecour - pure engine sounds.
Kit Car Rally cars were two-wheel drive divided into 3 groups (K9, K10 and K11) derived from models of Group A and protagonists in the second half of the nineties. This regulation applied mainly to classes A6 and A7 and the development of the engine was much more lenient than those given in Group A, but the main feature of these cars was the body with much widened wheel arches, air vents on the bonnet , front spoiler and rear wing that gave them a much more aggressive and more grip due to the increase in roadways.
