NEWS - Citroën DS3 WRC gets new livery for 2015

The star of the 1955 Paris Motor Show, the Citroën DS, is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. As a nod to this landmark anniversary, the Citroën Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team DS3 WRCs will feature exclusive decals starting at this month’s Rallye Automobile Monte-Carlo next week. The white, red and gold livery has been simplified to provide greater legibility and includes an eye-catching “60” spread across the rear wings to mark the occasion.

The start of the 2015 FIA World Rally Championship season also sees the arrival of two new partners for the team. Official WRC timekeeper since 2013, Certina will feature on the bodywork of the DS3 WRCs and the overalls of the crews. Sheikh Khalid Al Qassimi, Kris Meeke and Mads Østberg will also wear watches made by the famous Swiss brand.

Already heavily involved in motorsport, the automotive equipment manufacturer Sparco becomes an official Citroën Racing supplier. This partnership covers all of the series in which the brand is competing, including WRC, WTCC and customer racing.

“We’re very pleased that prestigious partners like Certina and Sparco share our passion and have decided to pledge their support to us,” commented Yves Matton, Citroën Racing Team Principal. “We hope to defend their colours very successfully throughout the world, on some of the planet’s most beautiful and most difficult roads.”
