ontested in Sorbo-Ocagnono, the Tour de Corse shakedown provided the Citroën Total Abu Dhabi team’s crews with the chance to make a few final adjustments before the start. Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle set the third fastest time in their Citroën C3 #wrc.
Kris Meeke: “I’m pleased to have shown that we have good speed here. However, the shakedown is pretty different to what we’ll experience in the #rally. The stages are long and tyre management is going to be critical. I still can’t wait to get started. Everyone who was here last year knows the stages well and it’ll be close. It looks like the weather is going to be pretty mild, so that’s a good thing!”
Craig Breen: “It went well this morning, we had a good set-up and the C3 #wrc was very enjoyable to drive. I found the road got dirty fairly quickly, with the mud and stones dragged onto the road on the corners as more cars completed. I feel confident going into the race.”
Stéphane Lefebvre: “I needed to get my bearings on these narrow, twisty roads. On the first few passes, I was too near the middle of the road and I didn’t dare cut. I gradually grew in confidence with the car and my times improved as I completed more runs.”
