Citroen stars – and boss – for Condroz
Citroen drivers Craig Breen, Stephane Lefebvre and boss Yves Matton will all contest this weekend’s Condroz Rally in Belgium.
Breen and Lefebvre will drive DS 3 R5s while their boss takes a C4 WRC version to the Huy-based event.
The changeable weather conditions – with ice frequently making the asphalt stages a significant challenge – offer Citroen’s two junior drivers more experience of slippery asphalt ahead of January’s Monte Carlo.
“I don’t say this will be a Monte Carlo test,” said Matton, “but it does offer some tricky conditions. It will be interesting for them.”
Matton, who will be co-driven by nine-time world champion Daniel Elena, admitted he was hoping for a repeat of his 2013 podium.
“That’s the target,” he said. “It’s good because they don’t allow the priority drivers to take the [two-litre] World Rally Cars, they’re only for the gentlemen drivers!”
