Information About The Peugeot Motorsport Division:Peugeot was interested in car racing since their earliest days and introduced five cars for the Paris-Rouen Trials
in 1894, and one of the cars, with Lemaitre as the driver, taking the 2nd place. These trials were considered as
the first car racing events. Involvement in various racing events continued until WWI, but in 1912 Peugeot achieved
its most famous contribution to motorsport history when Georges Boillot driving a Peugeot took the French Grand
Prix title at Dieppe.
Peugeot followed by success in various global rallying events, most notably in the WRC with the 4WD traction
turbo-charged models of the Peugeot 205, and further with the Peugeot 206.
In the 1990s the company raced in the WSC as well as the 24 Hours of Le Mans race with the 905 model.
After some difficulties with reliability and aerodynamics, the 905 managed to be competitive in the WSC, winning
eight of the 14 events, and obtaining the team' and driver' titles. Peugeot also swept the 24 Hours of Le Mans in
1992 and 1993.
In 1999, Peugeot returned to the WRC with the 206 WRC prepared. The vehicle was a direct rival against
competitors as the Subaru Impreza WRC, the Ford Focus WRC and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. Marcus
Grönholm got its first title at the 2000 Swedish Rally, and Peugeot received the manufacturers' title.
For the 2004 season, Peugeot retired the 206 WRC in favour of the new 307 WRC car model. The 307 WRC
was not as successfull as its predecessor, but Grönholm managed to gather three titles with the car, in 2004
The company was also an important engine provider for F1 teams, such as McLaren, Jordan and Prost,
between 1990s-2000 F1 events.
