Citroens to still appear in WRC during 2020
Notwithstanding the premature end of Citroen Racing’s active participation in the full World Rally Championship, Mads Ostberg is to remain as the team’s last remaining driver in the FIA World Rally Championship in 2020.
In two seasons (2013 and 2014) when he was full time WRC driver for the team, Ostberg was Citroen’s highest scoring WRC driver.
He is to compete on the required eight rounds of the WRC2 series in a C3 R5 run by PH Sport, while Citroen Racing will support entries in six rounds of the privateer WRC3 series in a similar car driven by reigning national French champion Yohan Rossel.
Sebastien Loeb’s long time WRC rally engineer, Didier Clement, will act as Citroen Racing Customer Competition Manager.
Rossel, Pierre-Louis Loubet and Adrien Fourmaux form the French federation’s FFSA Rallye Team for the season at the FFSA Academy. Fourmaux will drive a Fiesta R5, with plans not yet finalised for Loubet.
