In 2017 season, Team Citroën Total Abu Dhabi WRT will run two to four C3 WRCs for their crews.
"We were coming to the end of a three-year WTCC cycle, as the Brand was about to launch a strategic product: New C3. At the same time, the FIA was in the process of introducing new regulations for the WRC. The C3 perfectly corresponds to this definition, the planets have aligned themselves. This conjunction will enable Citroën to fully exploit its commitment to motorsport.. "
Yves Matton, Citroën Racing Director
For the last 48 years, the partnership between Total and Citroën has been based on four solid and complementary foundations: R&D, manufacturing, sales & marketing and motorsport. From the brand's production plants to Citroën Racing's specialist workshops, the famous motto "Citroën prefers Total" sums up this indestructible link!
Meaning 'Land of the Gazelle' in Arabic, Abu Dhabi was founded when a young antelope led a wandering tribe to fresh water, on an island with no more than 300 palm ('barasti') huts, a few coral buildings and the Ruler's fort. This simple island settlement has since been transformed into the modern, cosmopolitan city of Abu Dhabi and the high-rise capital of the United Arab Emirates.
Citroën and Michelin share so much history together, on both the manufacturing and motorsport fronts. Together, the two companies have claimed five FIA World Rally Championship titles and five FIA Cross-Country Rally World Cups.
