Supercars - Dreux Rallycross 2017

Winner at Dreux was Philippe Maloigne.
The premier category of Rallycross in France is Supercars.   They are 500hp plus four wheel drive cars similar to those that take part in the World Rally Championship and can reach 1000kph innless tan 2.5 seconds.  A variety of cars such as Citroen DS3, Peugeot 208, Renault Clio and Ford Fiesta take part.  Definitely spectacular, competitive and fun to watch.  These photos are from the last round of the Chamionnat de France de Rallycross ar the Circuit Philippe-Chanoine in Dreux whicvh is about an hour south west of Paris.
