Rnd 1 Junior World Rally Champ

Monte Carlo-2002
1/Duval-Belgium-Ford Puma
2/Caldani-Italy-Peugeot
3/Feghali-Lebanon-Ford Puma
4/Carlson-Sweden-Ford puma
5/Doppelreiter-Austria-Peugeot

I have never seen this rally but Ford seems to be going pretty good and the Puma in rally trim looks not bad.The MG ZR EX258 rally car debut ended when the car left the road and rolled but it looks quite nice as well.
What is the Puma like?

BBF , take it you have seen the racing puma???? Its a special edition puma road car with wider arches ????

Same as this with some spoilers on the back , it runs a 1.7 zetec engine and seriously tuned by Special Vehicle Operations .

All the different variations

P.s. The racing Puma road car looks alot better in the metal and does look like a smart car !!!!

P.P.s Try the video , it rips away froma standing start and certainly pulls well!!!

Think it was a limited run not sure how many , the performance is "brisk" as the power is not hugh but it it is a small car . Normaly when you see a Puma , you yeah fair enough , cute !! But the racing Puma is the way the should have had it in the first place the flared wings make it look superb and with a bit more power it could have been a serious coupe . Problem people had with it was the cost it was about £3000 more than a normal Puma and so it was into the coupe price range , you could get an MX5 or a Celica for the same price .
