WTCC Testing

I’m liking these new Citroen WTCC cars more and more. Big wheels, big wing, big flares.  Our kind of recipe.  It really is looking like supertourers 2.0.   I’m not sure they’ll be as fast, as they are no where near sophisticated.  But it’s a definate step up from S2000 or NGTC spec.  Also what’s […]

Citroen C-Elysée WTCC 2014

The 2014 season if the World Trouing Car Championship is shaping up.    Citroen has announced a full 3 car factory team lead by NINE time WRC champ Sebastian Loeb.  He will pilot the new C-Elysee saloon car. Honda is currently the only other confirmed factory squad.  Lada are assumed to have a 2 car […]

New Era of WRC

Decade of Decadence or Decay?
