After taking a clean sweep of the top five places in the RC2 category at last month’s Rallye Monte-Carlo, the C3 R5 again demonstrated its competitiveness as Mads Østberg and Torstein Eriksen claimed victory in the WRC2 class in Sweden.

This year's particularly punishing Rallye Monte-Carlo saw Citroën crews showcase the C3R5's competitive potential by monopolising the top five places in the RC2 class. Two of them even concluded the event inside the top 10 overall, a result that couldn't have got Citroën Racing's reinforced 2020 Customer Competition programme off to a more resounding start. Frenchmen Eric Camilli / François-Xavier Buresi (Saintéloc Racing) overcame the rally's traditional mix of challenges to top the RC2 and WRC3 orders from start to finish, completing the distance 39.6 seconds clear of Norway’s Mads Østberg / Torstein Eriksen (PH Sport) who secured an assertive win in the WRC2 category.

Citroën Racing is to continue competing in the FIA World Rally Championship in association with its leading C3 R5 customers, beginning with this month’s Rallye Monte-Carlo and concluding in November in Japan after taking in many of the WRC’s classic fixtures. This stepped up programme with the C3 R5 will see development of the car – which has been ongoing since 2018 – continue in order to provide customers with an increasingly competitive car. PH Sport’s Mads Østberg and Yohan Rossel will benefit from official backing from Citroën Racing and its partners Total and Michelin on respectively eight and six rounds of this year’s FIA World Rally Championship, with the French youngster enjoying additional support from the FFSA (Fédération Française de Sport Automobile). Nicolas Ciamin and Eric Camilli will also have assistance for the Rallye Monte-Carlo. Including private entries, a total of six C3 R5s are poised to start the 88th running of the WRC’s winter classic.
