162-15 9812NR92 ACR “17” Active-Spain This car has been owned by Phillipe Wambergue (former BX 4TC EVO Citroen Factory driver) since many years and went under restoration which was finished early 2009. It once participated in the WRC Acropolis rally 1986 (2-4 June) as “17” with driver P. Wambergue and navigator J.B.Vieu. For that reason they brought back the number “17” and stickers of the Acropolis rallye on the car. The car is put on an auction at the EuroCitro event mid August 2009 in Le Mans, France. It was confirmed that a stamped “162-15” chassisnumber is found inside the engine bay. It was not sold and Phillipe showed the car during various demonstrations, including rallyes. In Autumn 2013 it was stated that the car was sold to a Spanish Group B car collector which owns now all used Group B car models. Photos beneath show it in Greece 1986 and during the Eifel classic rallye 2012.

161-18 9???NR92 ??? Museum Preserved Citroën Conservatoire, Aulnay. Between 28/30 January 2005 it could be found inside the rallygallery during the 18th Belgium Motor Show 2005 in Luige/Luik. 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). Beneath the car shown at Aulnay (thanks to Martijn van Well).

??? 9820NR92 ??? Scrap. This last rally it participated must have been the Rallye National Terre de Charent as “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 shows the car driven by Pivert.
