Jacques Villeneuve will race a Peugeot 208 in Rallycross
Yes, this is former Formula One world champion, Indianapolis 500 winner and Le Mans driver Jacques Villeneuve, standing next to a Peugeot 208 in race livery. He will contest this year’s World Rallycross (not to be confused with ‘Global’, Rallycross, or indeed ‘Interplanetary’ Rallycross) in the baby Pug for the entire season. It’s also not actually a baby, either, because it has 600bhp. And Villeneuve is very excited about driving sideways in a 600bhp, four-wheel-drive Peugeot 208 over loose tarmac. “I am very excited about driving sideways in a 600bhp, four-wheel-drive Peugeot 208 over loose tarmac,” he clarifies.
