Delivery of the 60th Citroën C3 Rally2
Citroën Racing and Racing Shop have just delivered to Sports&You the 60th Citroën C3 Rally2, barely two years after the opening of sales to teams and drivers. The Citroën C3 Rally2 has very quickly become one of the top car in the Rally2 category, one of the most competitive in motorsport with six manufacturers represented.
The latest creation from the Citroën Racing workshops:
The C3 Rally2 project began with a sketch at the end of 2016, in the design department of Citroën Racing, the most successful brand in the WRC era in rallying. Development continued in 2017, with thousands of kilometers of tests in the most demanding conditions, alongside experienced drivers renowned for their fine-tuning skills. C3 Rally2 is designed around fundamental concepts:
- Control of operating costs
Worldwide success :
Since mid-2018, privateers write history with their Citroën C3 Rally2 accomplishment.
The C3 R5 family has grown and has extended beyond the French and European borders: 139 drivers, nearly fourty teams, representing three continents (South America, Asia and Europe). On asphalt, snow and dirt, they have pushed back their limits, relying on the qualities and reliability of C3 Rally2.
The figures speak for themselves: 443 starts - 58 victories - 136 podiums - 564 scratch
From regional rallies to WRC, C3 Rally2 has been just as successful, proving its versatility, accessibility and ease of handling. From the very first meters onboard, drivers feel confident and can express themselves more freely.
Success isn't just measured by performance.
It is also measured by pleasure.
