Ragnotti

Ragnotti
It is absolutely unnecessary to introduce Jean Ragnotti, but in case someone was not paying attention we will make a brief presentation: he is a French driver who has raced in rallies, Le Mans, rallycross, tourism, the Dakar... which has always been really fast (counting among his many achievement the conquest of the Monte Carlo Rally in 1981 or the Tour de Corse in 1982 and 1985), that is a cult figure for the Renault brand, and that is one of the most famous and charismatic drivers because, above everything, he is nice, sociable... a great guy, in plain words. We have met him on several occasions and always, every single time he has greeted us, we have talked for a while, and every single time he was planning a new joke. Hats off!

Well, this boy, who is already 74 years old, has announced that he's hanging the steering wheel, that he will not race anymore, although he will occasionally show at some exhibitions from time to time. With a bit of luck you can still watch him spinning chained loops with the Renault Maxi Turbo. We wish!! :D

Mmmmmm and, now that he's retired, is he going to start ordering scale models at SpotModel? Who knows! XD
