Citroen-Racing-2017-World-Rally-Car

 

Three weeks after its first outing, Citroen Racing has continued development of its 2017 World Rally Car in the south of Portugal. Faced with varied weather conditions, Kris Meeke and Stephane Lefebvre racked up the miles during four days of testing.

 

Fresh from the first test in the south of France, Citroen Racing headed to the Algarve in Portugal for the second session of development testing for its 2017 World Rally Car. The teams were treated to rain, hail, fog and even the occasional burst of sunshine as they worked on the new car. Teammates Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle and Stephane Lefebvre and Gabin Moreau were busy behind the wheel of the prototype produced by the Versailles Technical Centre, as they prepare for Rally de Portugal with the Abu Dhabi Total World Rally Team.

 

“We were actually quite pleased to have these variable conditions because they meant we could test different set-ups and assess how the bodywork stood up to being loaded with mud,” explained Laurent Fregosi, Citroen Racing’s Technical Director. “During the tests, we have several objectives. Obviously, we want to check the reliability of the various components. The mileage done by each part is noted down to make sure it tallies with the specifications. But our work is also focussed on looking for performance and driver comfort.”
