Rally legend Didier Auriol joins Reis Race Retro

French rally driver Didier Auriol, who won the World Rally Championship (WRC) in 1994, will make his debut at this year’s Reis Race Retro.

Born in Montpellier and initially an ambulance driver, Auriol started rallying in an old Simca 1000. After winning his first French Rallye Championship in 1986 behind the wheel of a Metro 6R4, he repeated his success in 1987 and ’88 but this time in a works Ford Sierra RS Cosworth.

Auriol made his name in the WRC throughout the 1990s. He was the first Frenchman to win the Championship. He also drove for manufacturers including Lancia, Toyota, and Peugeot amongst others during his career.

As well as driving in a replica of the Cosworth on the Reis Live Rally Stage on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 February, Auriol will be interviewed and taking fans’ questions on the interview stage. He will also be signing autographs and posing for selfies with fans.
