Citroën Confirm WRC for 2010/2011

Citroën have just confirmed that they’re willing to continue competing in the FIA World Rally Championship for the next two years.

The fact that they’ve had huge success and tons of publicity will no doubt have played some part in that decision. Citroën have a total of four manufacturers’ titles, five drivers’ world championships and 58 victories to their name, and they’re currently leading the 2009 manufacturers’ championship.

“In the current tricky financial climate, it is important to keep on expressing ourselves through motorsport and through the victories of our teams and cars. The FIA World Rally Championship, where the costs remain contained, is an excellent promotional vehicle. Citroën Racing is delighted by the trust that has been placed in us by Citroën’s board of directors and the PSA Group.

“We are currently working with our existing driver line-up to renew their contracts. I am confident that Sebastien Loeb and Dani Sordo will be continuing their adventure with Citroën Racing into the future.” – Olivier Quesnel, Director of Citroën Racing

So Citroën are set to continue rallying, but will we ever see a proper rally-inspired C4 in the showrooms? The VTS doesn’t cut it as a hot hatch, what we need is for Citroën to give us something with 250bhp+ and a wide body kit, a bit like the Focus RS. Come on, you can do it!

With a penchant for hot hatches and an allergy to public transport, he would much prefer to drive a bad car than never drive at all. Fortunately his family has learned to put up with this obsession and the internet has provided a channel for his ramblings.
