Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Citroen’s 2017 World Rally Car con­tender – the C3 WRC – has run for the first time.

The car is un­der­stood to have un­der­taken shake­down test­ing at Citroen’s Sa­tory track on the out­skirts of Paris last week­end. Team prin­ci­pal Yves Mat­ton has con­firmed to MN that gravel test­ing will now be­gin with the car else­where in France.

Alex Bengue was sched­uled to be the first man in the car, it is not known whether Kris Meeke has driven it – the Dun­gan­non driver was out of con­tact when MN closed for press on Mon­day.

The team has con­firmed line-ups in Por­tu­gal (Meeke, Stephane Le­feb­vre and Khalid Al Qas­simi) and Poland (Craig Breen, News p12, and Le­feb­vre).
