The curious case of the Citroën DS3 WRC


When Citroën Racing announced that it would not have official team
in the WRC in 2016, all the alarm went off. Many gave for the fact that not
would be in competition with any Citroën DS3 WRC, and what is certain is that in a month view
the start of the championship, we can be before a season with so many World
Rally Car of French origin, as in the years most notable of Citroën Racing. PH
Sport and Khalid Al-Qassimi have the key to put in liza four Citroën DS3
with very different projects and interesting. At a private level, but Citroën
not cleared, the World.

Kris Meeke has been renewed by Citroën Racing and Yves Matton has confirmed that it will have a competitive program in the WRC 2016, that collated with of its work on the development of the new World Rally Car to 2017. Although you have not specified any concrete data, it is estimated that Kris Meeke played ten tests with a DS3 WRC for PH Sport. It is also not confirmed but it is assumed that the training will have another World Rally Car. Stéphane Lefebvre you need to shoot and will be added to the Citroën DS3 WRC alongside Gabin Moureau, as Stéphane Prévot has ceased to be his co-pilot.


Stéphane Prévot can’t afford to compete a year without
and without the support of Red Bull and Even, the track of the PH-Sport was
closed for the veteran co-pilot. With 173 units in the World
Rally, Prévot has the experience to know how it works WRC and
also to further possible agreements. In a recent interview
for ‘Autonews Magazine’, the co-pilot has slipped that there will be two other
Citroën WRC DS3 private under the team Abu Dhabi World Rally
. The first unit as it can not be of another way will be to
Khalid Al-Qassimi.

With Khalid Al-Qassimi of patrons and making appearances
, the weight of the equipment would go to a pilot who has worked with
the PSA Group during the last four years, but with Peugeot Sport. Craig
Breen would have a private program with the second DS3 WRC of the team
, giving the
jump definitively to the premier class of the World Rally. Though
the irish pilot has played two tests with a Ford Fiesta RS WRC private
his work in the last year has focused on the Peugeot 208 T16 R5, vehicle
that has been competing in WRC2 and the ERC.
