1995 World Champion, Colin McRae, will replace Sebastien Loeb in the upcoming Rally of Turkey. The Scotsman will drive the #1 Citroen Xsara for the Kronos Total team.


Further to his mountain bike accident last week, Sébastien Loeb had an operation on his right arm (humerus bone) which went well. The 2006 world championship leader now starts an intensive re-education in the aim to be back behind the wheel as soon as possible.

For the forthcoming Rally of Turkey (October 12th-15th), Marc Van Dalen – Kronos’ team principal - together with Guy Fréquelin – Citroën Sport’s director – have searched for the best solution for the Kronos Total Citroën WRT to defend its leadership in both ‘Drivers’ and ‘Manufacturers’ championships.

The experienced Colin McRae has been chosen to help the team. With 25 world victories, Colin has also driven the Xsara in 2003, when he was Sébastien Loeb’s team-mate in the Citroën Sport team.

The Scottish driver has accepted the difficult challenge which represents this temporary mission. Highly motivated, Colin is decided to do his maximum to serve Seb and Kronos Total Citroën’s interests in the fight with the competition.

Colin will be co-driven by Nicky Grist, who has sat next to him on 83 starts out of his 145 participations in the World Rally Championship.
