Despite having honed his skills on the racetrack, former F1 racer Michel Leclère has proved that he's a dab hand on road circuits as well, in a video recently shared by Goodwood Road & Racing.
The Frenchman, who competed in eight Formula One Grands Prix during 1975 and 1976, took to the wheel of his Renault 5 Alpine Groupe II during the recent Monte Carlo Rallye Historique, supported by co-driver François-Paul Forgeoux.
Expertly guiding the turbocharged, bright yellow vehicle through the winding French alpine roads, Leclère shows off his fearless skill, even catching up with and overtaking a number of competitors.
Currently in its 19th edition, the Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique annually sees hundreds of cars which participated in the editions of Rallyes Automobiles Monte-Carlo between 1955 and 1980 meet once again to compete.
Also competing for Renault Classic were Jean Ragnotti and Michel Duvernay; Alain Serpaggi with Jean-Pierre Prevost, and Christian Chambord, co-driven by Patrick Fourestie.
