Just back from Monte Carlo, the DG Sport Competition team worked hard to prepare the Citroën C3 R5 for the Hadeland Rally in Norway, a 100% snow event that Mads Ostberg had planned in order to prepare for the Rally of Sweden.
Despite a disabling starting position - 2nd - due to the fresh snow that covered the stages, the Norwegian driver quickly took the measure of his Citroën C3 R5 and finished at an challenging 2nd place overall, behind the VW Polo GTI R5 of the local Veiby, who started from the 8th position ...
There is still a lot of work to improve the efficiency of the car to adapt it to the driving style of Mads Ostberg.
We remind you that the Norwegian driver will compete with the Citroën C3 R5 prepared by the Belgian team in a minimum of eight events in WRC2-Pro. This program, supported by Citroën Racing and its Racing Shop, Michelin and Total, will start in a few days with the Rally of Sweden. Argentina, Chile, Portugal, Sardinia, Finland, Wales GB and Catalonia will follow.
