After many wins on tarmac WRC events, Gilles Panizzi is back in action on 47.Tour Auto Opel – Rallye National de la Réunion – Région Réunion 2016 on 29. 7. – 31. 7. 2016.
He will drive new car Peugeot 208 T16 and had new codriver Jacques-Julien Renucci, who has also some experience from highest level events with Sarrazin Stéphane and some other drivers.
Gilles Panizzi has never been world champion, because he was (is) tarmac specialist. He won Rally Sanremo and Tour de Corse many times, also Rally Catalunya, where he also were third with Peugeot 306 Maxi.
Some memories from his awesome driving on tarmac surface:
