Group F2 Rallying - Maxi Cars

Back in the late 90s the group F2 Maxi rally cars were intended to be a cheaper entry into the World of rallying for car manucturers.

The cars used in the group 2 class ranged from the Renault Megane, Peugeot 306, Renault Clio, and Escort RS2000. Pretty much every car had wider arches, spoilers, splitters and looked how a proper rally car should.
