I saw this on the TV today or yesterday. One question for you Rallyman........I know this is the Tarmac prepared version..ie bigger wheels....lower suspension etc. But This car just looks lower in the roof line than previous ones I've seen.
Also on the Citreon (which I understand won the Rally but is subject to a time penalty or something)....Is this car finally going to compete in the whole championship or is it still not going overseas???
And did you catch the Paris-Dakar rally on SBS yesterday?....Got to love those Rally trucks.....KAMAZ's, TATRA's and DAF's....
Mitsubishi had a really bad time:s3 taking out the top 8 places. There was a real nice SEAT car which was a deisel.
There's have been no panel changes to the Focus as far as I know. Maybe there has been suspension changes which makes the car sit differently (the Focus has never been fast on tarmac as other cars so they could have made improvements there).
Citroen are only going to compete in a limited season. Basically, from memory, they're going to compete in tarmac rallies and two gravel rallies, one of them being the Acropolis in Greece (which is the most demanding of the gravel rallies). This is basically their line-up last season. Would be a shame because Sebastian Loeb (who won the Monte Carlo rally) is only in his second rally ever in a WRC car
. I'd like to see how fast he is on gravel!
As for Paris Dakar rally, no I didn't catch it on SBS. To be perfectly honest, I'm not that interested in P-D rally. WRC is a totally different story as you can tell :s1
