After the appearance of the 5 TX in 1974, Renault developed a racing career for this small car, beginning with the monomake series, where the 5 had replaced the 12 Gordini. By 1977 the R5 Alpine Cup had come and in 1982 the R5 Alpine Turbo ensured another technical step to the series. Before that, the 5 Alpine had also been developed in a Group 2 version, that made its debut in 1978, when it clinched a Group 2 win at the Monte Carlo and at the Bandama Rally. The Group 2 version was put aside in 1980, Renault having developed the Group 4 version of the central engined 5 Turbo.
