Wing Wednesday: Citroën reveal radical aero updates

Citroën’s rally team have been testing the C3 WRC in Spain ahead of the upcoming Rally Spain, and the car featured an extreme update.

It appears the car has undergone a near complete aerodynamic re-profiling, with a new splitter and numerous winglets that wouldn’t look out of place on an F1 car.

What makes the Salou-based event more demanding on downforce, is that two of the four days are on asphalt, meaning the cars require near track levels of grip.

The efforts come as the chances of Sebastian Ogier claiming a seventh straight WRC title narrow.

The Frenchman recently complained the car was “undriveable,” and as Toyota’s Ott Tanak now leads the standings by 28 points, Citroën are throwing everything the title assault.

Rally Spain kicks off tomorrow, 24/10-27/10!
