Early Sunday, the Peugeot 104 ZS driven by Carlos Tavares, the CEO of the Stellantis group and an authentic petrolhead, broke down in the first stage, Le Moulinon/Antraigues (SR4). The front right transmission seemed out of order and it looked like game over, before the ritual stop planned at “La Remise”, the famous restaurant of the Jouanny family. However, a man living next to the stage had the same model in his garage, in very good condition. He provided the spare parts needed for an urgent fix and the white 104 started again, in SR5. The next goal on the agenda was to get safely back to Valence on Sunday night.
