About the real-life car the Mini 4WD is based on Edit

For the 2000 WRC season, François Delecour drove number 9 and 18 with his co-driver Daniel Grataloup, while Gilles Panizzi drove car numbers 10 and 19 with his co-driver Hervé Panizzi. Marcus Grönholm also entered in numbers 10 and 16 to conquer both the driver's and manufacturer's championship; Peugeot had also won the 1999 manufacturer's title.
