The World Rally Championship - WRC
In 1968, CITROËN and TOTAL signed an engineering and commercial partnership agreement which immediately overlapped into racing. The destinies of our two brands in motorsports have never parted since.
From improving engine performance by reducing friction with the development of new lubricants, to analyzing them after each event, and optimizing fuel consumption, CITROËN and TOTAL engineers and scientists have been facing and overcoming challenges together for over 43 years.
That teamwork has resulted in some of motorsports' finest legends. The successes in the WRC World Rally Championship recorded since 2003 are a great example. The partnership has faced the technical challenges with the Xsara, followed by the C4 and now the DS3, and the human side of the adventure with the emergence of an extraordinary driver, Sébastien Loeb.
The Alsace-born rally racer now has an unparalleled track record: seven world titles in a row, 63 victories in the WRC (ending with the Rally Mexico 2011), allowing Citroen to win Manufacturer's World Champion titles.
