World Rally Championship should always has this rally on its calendar because it is special in every way. Surface of it is gravel that looks like a marbles and it is really tough to find a grip for the first rally cars which are also known as a cleaners.
Francois Delecour had two terrible accidents as a road opener or cleaner and when drove for Mitsubishi, he crashed out into the forest with around 160km/h. Engine was on the middle of the road and the car on the side. That's how big this impact was.
His co-driver Daniel Grataloup was lifted to the hospital with injuries and I don0t remember that he started any rally after that accident.
Season 2006 was nothing special to be honest. Only two works teams stayed in the sport - Subaru and Ford while Citroen took sabatical for that season but gave Kronos Racing from Belgium to run their cars.
Te rest you can see from the video. Enjoy...
