Won’t look the usual red tones, grays and whites in his
Citroën DS3 WRC, but Stéphane Lefebvre will be the only official driver of Citroen
in the Rally of Germany. And is that as it happened in the Rally
Argentina, Citroën Racing does not compete with its pilots under the team ‘satellite’
Abu Dhabi Total WRT. In the test sudamericana PH Sport, trainer that puts
point the DS3 WRC, put in competition two units for local pilots, and in
the first asphalt season has not left in the lurch at the most
specialist about this area of the French brand.
In this way, Stéphane Lefebvre will be competing with a unit of the Citroën
DS3 WRC PH Sport in what will be his fourth appearance of the season
in the World after competing in Monte-carlo, Portugal and Poland. It was
it is precisely in the Monte carlo Rally, where the asphalt was great
the protagonist of the lack of snow, where he was his best result in the
WRC after his Citroën DS3 WRC to the fifth position. With this
history and after winning the Rally of Germany of 2014 in the JWRC,
French rider hopes to get a good result among the vineyards
In relation to your participation in the Rally of Germany, Stéphane Lefebvre wrote: “Is one of my rallies favorites. Since that was added to the calendar of the World I have been coming every year as a spectator. last year was my first rally with a World Rally Car and I wanted to have the opportunity to confirm, here is my progress. As soon as I knew that the program of the Abu Dhabi Total WRT did not include the Rally of Germany, I tried to put the budget needed to run. I could manage for the sponsors that supported me in the JWRC me support and the agreement with PH-Sport was easy“.
A private initiative which of course has the support of Citroën Racing, as he states Lefebvre: “Yves Matton told me that it was a good idea, which is always good to gain more experience. Also warned me that he was at the height of my last performances with the Citroen DS WRC and that is what I intend to do. The roads of this rally does not look anything like those found to the north of France and yet you offer me a certain familiarity. The most difficult is the military base in Baumholder. I would like to repeat the fifth achieved in Monte carlo“.
