despite adding two podiums in the first three rallies of the season, the Citroën C3 WRC still has some weak points. This is recognized by the riders of the mark, despite the good work that the team had in the Rally of Mexico, with Sébastien Loeb, who lost the victory by a puncture. In this aspect, and with the goal of having a World Rally Car more consistent and competitive in all types of surfaces, technicians from Citroën Racing prepared a great evolution for the C3 that will come with occasion of the Tour de Corse, fourth event of the World.
apparently and according to reveals the average british ‘Autosport’, the C3 WRC debut at the Tour de Corse a new geometry. The objective is to find more grip on a World Rally Car that has had at this point one of his horses to battle. Have not been few the times that the pilots of the team, now directed by Pierre Budar have now become not only of the lack of grip, but also of the instability that offers the car in their responses in certain occasions, especially when the car is facing the second pass through the stages.
The arrival of this new geometry in Corsica does not seem casual, since it coincides with one of the rallies in the best behavior had the Citroen C3 WRC in 2017, in addition to being the second rally in a row for Sébastien Loeb. If the French already had a lot of the blame for the jump in the level that gave the C3 in the final stretch of last season, none better than the nine times champion of the WRC to assess if finally the Citroën C3 WRC wins in grip, in certain circumstances and submit a competitive level commensurate to that of their rivals.
