Airfix Catalogue description:

Making its debut in the 1999 WRC the Peugeot 206 saw the French firm returning to the WRC full time for the first time since the end of the group B era in the 1980s. The 206 WRC was a far more conformist beast then the mid-engine lunacy of the group B era though, featuring a front mounted inline 4 turbo engine powering all four wheels. For 2003 the previous years liveries of Silver and blue were gone, replaced by a striking red scheme for drivers Marcus Gronholm and Richard Burns. The British driver scored highly, though just missed out on any overall victories, Marcus Gronholm however blasted to victory in three events, Sweden, New Zealand and Argentina. But was beaten in the overall standings by the Brit, who tragically had to miss the final round due to an illness that claimed the 2001 world champions life far too soon.
