Citroen ‘temporary' conclude Abu Dhabi Racing partnership in 2019

Written by  Dec 20, 2018

Driven by Sébastien Ogier – Julien Ingrassia and Esapekka Lappi – Janne Ferm, both C3 WRCs entered in next year’s WRC – a fourteen-round season beginning on the stages of the world famous Rallye Monte-Carlo (22-27 January) and concluding in Australia (14-17 November) will feature brand-new livery.

The new look will also celebrate the brand’s 100thanniversary. The end of 2018 marks a temporary conclusion for the working relationship between Citroën Racing and Abu Dhabi Racing. A relationship that began in 2013 and produced nine rally wins (three in 2013, one in 2015, two in 2016, two in 2017 and one in 2018) in the world rally championship.

The team thanked Khalid Al Qassimi for these last five years. The end of this season equally provides Citroën with an opportunity to offer its heartfelt thanks to Chris Patterson, Khalid Al Qassimi’s co-driver on his selected annual appearances in the WRC, as well as to Craig Breen, Scott Martin, Mads Østberg, Torstein Eriksen, and the inseparable duo Sébastien Loeb – Daniel Elena, who all did us proud in competing on behalf of the team in 2018.

A new chapter therefore begins for Citroën Total WRT in 2019, as two new crews particularly determined to aim high join the team.

The first instalment of which will be the unveiling of the 2019 livery of the C3 WRC at the WRC season presentation, which will be held on 12 January 2019 at Birmingham’s Autosport International Show.
