After it's global unveiling at the 2010 Paris Motor Show followed by some rigorous testing, the DS3 WRC is ready for action. The car will make its racing debut in February at the Swedish Rally, part of the 2011 World Rally Championship (WRC), covering a variety of conditions, climates and terrains. Australia will finally get a glimpse of the car in September when it will visit to compete at Rally Australia in Coffs Harbour.
The DS3 WRC is the third rally car entered by Citroen in the 2011 World Rally Championship (WRC) after the Xsara and C4. Five DS3's in total will be seen over the course of the championship, with two crews entered by Citroen and three from privateers.
Citroen Racing is taking no chances when it comes to retaining their driver and manufacturer titles, recruiting a top-tier team including eight-time WRC champion drivers Sebastian Loeb and Daniel Elena. Two-time WRC champions Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia will drive the No.2 car.
See the Citroen DS3 WRC at Rally Australia at Coffs Harbour, NSW from 8 to 11 September 2011.
