Because on the car the names can be found of Andruet and his navigator this makes this car a possible candidate for Monte Carlo (15 – 9817NR92) Sweden (10 – 9830NR92) or Acropolis (14 – 9809NR92).

??? 9820NR92 Scrap. F. Chauche used the car during Rallyes Provance as Nr “2”, Rallye de la Decoverte??? as Nr “8” (see photo), and finally Rallye de Charente as Nr “14”. This was 1 of the two cars which was lateron used by Patrick Pivert during the French Rallycross championship. During one of the races (Saint Junien circuit) it crashed and was fully destroyed. In a long right fast part upon a small hill, he lost control and the car rolled 3 to 5 times and was totalloss. Gladly Patrick Pivert was ok. He took the 2nd shell and drove this second car for the rest of the season. Parts of this crashed EVO were used to restore another EVO (nr 16). Photo right shows the car driven by Pivert.
