The home event of the Citroen Total World Rally Team will also be the first rally stage to be contested on clean tarmac this year.
The home event of the Citroen Total World Rally Team, and round four of the 2019 World Rally Championship (WRC) season in Corsica, is the first rally to be contested on clean tarmac this year. Hopes are therefore high for the French team, with major changes made to the route, expected to suit the crews of Sebastien Ogier - Julien Ingrassia and Esapekka Lappi - Janne Ferm.
Having won last year's rally, leading from start to finish, Sebastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia spearhead the challenge of the Citroen Total World Rally Team on the Mediterranean island. It's their firm intention of claiming a third win in four races, following victories in Monte-Carlo and Mexico.
the C3 WRC has always been very competitive at this round, where its celebrated predecessors (Xsara Kit-Car, Xsara WRC and C4 WRC) have won the event a total of six times.
