Citroen shifts into racing gear for 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Citroën is showcasing the very best of its racing pedigree at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed with the DS3 WRC in action; the UK premiere of DS4 Racing concept and a display of the brand’s line-up including the recently launched New DS5.

Making its UK premiere, Citroën is exhibiting the DS4 Racing concept on the show stand. First unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March, DS4 Racing is a concept car with a Citroën Racing pedigree.

The model’s 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine, developed by Citroën Racing, provides up to 256bhp (160bhp per litre) - a record for a Citroën series production car. This spectacular performance is accompanied by CO2 emissions of just 155g/km.

Citroën Racing, the championship winning team behind seven WRC Manufacturers’ titles and eight Driver’s titles for Sébastien Loeb/Daniel Elena, is back to wow the crowds at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed with the mighty 300bhp DS3 WRC. Piloted by Citroën Junior Team driver Thierry Neuville, Citroën Racing will be running the championship winning rally car on the famous hill climb as well as the Forest Rally Stage on Saturday 30 June and Sunday 1 July.
