Citroen Racing boss suspended from competition
- 26th March 2017, 6:58am
Citroen Racing’s competition director, team principal for Citroen’s WRC activities and proprietor of the MY Rally Team, Yves Matton, has been suspended from active competition.
The suspension came from the Belgian authorities after Matton failed a drugs test conducted at the 2016 Condroz Rally, on which he finished fifth.
A Belgian national, he had entered this international event as an amateur driver, at the wheel of an old Citroen C4 WRC.
The judgment ordered that “all licences” shall be suspended for a two year period.
The offending substance was Preterax, used for containing blood pressure conditions. The information was issued by the Tribunal Sportive of the Belgium federation RACB on February 20.
It is not known whether this suspension will affect his primary manager work, and no comment has been made by Citroen Racing.
