The last of the new generation of WRC cars has been unveiled with Citroen pulling the covers the new C3 WRC. The car has been testing for a long time now, at the hands of Kris Meeke, who will be leading the Citroen charge next month on the Monte. No specs for the car have been released but it would be expected the engine will be producing the same power as the Toyota, Hyundai and M-Sport Ford, while having just as much downforce. Now it’s just waiting to see what happens in the 2017 season.
One month before the 2017 FIA World Rally Championship gets underway at the Rallye Monte-Carlo, Citroën Racing officially unveils its C3 WRC in Abu Dhabi.
Complying with the new FIA regulations, which see the introduction of a new generation of very spectacular World Rally Cars, the C3 WRC heralds the return of Citroën as a works team in a discipline in which the Brand holds a record 96 race wins and eight world titles.
In the 2017 season, the Citroën Total Abu Dhabi WRT will enter two to four C3 WRCs for its crews: Kris Meeke/Paul Nagle, Craig Breen/Scott Martin, Stéphane Lefebvre/Gabin Moreau and Sheikh Khalid Al Qassimi/Chris Patterson.
