The filtration came and Citroën Racing has been forced to pull out the first official images of its C3 WRC. And is that the day yesterday had been reserved exclusively for some media, but at the time that she has broken the embargo of information, and specifically the images, around the world that had the ‘exclusive’ has had to pull their items from a test that the end has not been so secret.
In images taken by different means we have been able to see new items, as the rear, with the exhaust core and the optical hole to try to hide the most of the forms of the new C3 (in addition to the already horrible camouflage that is usually used for these tests). With Kris Meeke behind the wheel, and using the test track fetish of the PSA Group, Chateau Lastours, which is also also used by Peugeot Sport to test your buggy in the Dakar, the new World Rally Car from Citroen has made its first few kilometers (one hundred approximately) after the shakedown held at the end of last week near Satory.
despite the fact that the members of the team keep calling me with the code of internal model, B618, it is already clear that will be based on the new generation of the C3 in the version of five doors (will have to see if they are the coupe), in which is placed an engine in that will apply to all the learning accumulated during the last two seasons with the C-Elysee TC1 the World’s passenger Cars. It is a long way to go, but in the mark of the two chevrones have the hope that with a new car and a new technical regulation, it is easier to trim the advantage of the Volkswagen.
