Citroën Abu Dhabi World Rally Team have fielded two DS 3’s for the 2016 Tour de Corse – Rallye de France.
Kris Meeke/Paul Nagle and Craig Breen/Scott Martin, who replaces the injured French pairing of Stéphane Lefebvre/Gabin Moreau, who were originally supposed to compete at their ‘home’ rally.
Lefebvre and Moreau are still recovering from their near-100 miles per hour crash on the Baumholder military stages three weeks ago at Rallye Deutschland, in which Breen/Martin take the French crew’s place for the Tour de Corse.
Surprisingly, Breen has got more experience of competing at the Tour de Corse compared with Meeke as the Irishman has competed at this event for the last four consecutive years.
Whereas the Northern Irishman returns to the tarmac for the first time in almost a year after competing at the Tour de Corse in 2005, 2006 and 2015, where Meeke finished fourth.
The fifty-ninth edition of the Tour de Corse – Rallye de France takes place on the 30 September – 2 October 2016 as teams and crews navigate along 390.92 kilometres of tarmac stages along Ajaccio, Bastia and Porto-Vecchio.
