Citroen unveils its C3 WRC assault

One month before the 2017 FIA World Rally Championship gets underway at Rally Monte Carlo, Citroen Racing officially unveils its C3 WRC in Abu Dhabi.

Complying with the new FIA regulations which sees the introduction of a new generation of World Rally Cars, the C3 WRC heralds the return of Citroen with eight manufacturers’ titles and no fewer than 96 wins to the brand’s name.

For the 2017 season, the Citroen Total Abu Dhabi WRT will enter between two and four C3 WRCs for its crews; Kris Meeke/Paul Nagle, Craig Breen/Scott Martin, Stephane Lefebre/Gabin Moreau, and Sheikh Khalid Al Qassimi/Chris Patterson. Citroen’s ambitions for the next few seasons are to win races in normal conditions by beating their competitors, and then go for world titles in 2018.
