thanks, your welcome!
@ Dracaena sorry, didin't get the result. The site was rather confusing for a person who doesn't understand anything about trottering.
Another piece of Kimi-related information I found on the internet today:
The GM of Citroen seems to be very happy that Kimi chosed their car -> The global financial cris, which is said to affects everybody in motorsport (or atleast F1), doesn't have had souch an inpact on citroen's sales numbers this year. To increase with almost +20 %, WOW!!!http://www.rallybuzz.com/citroen-rally-portugal-pr/
Three questions to... Frédéric Banzet Citroën general manager
After the first five rallies of the season, how would you describe the performance of Citroën and its drivers?
“Thanks to their three victories, Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena are leading the Drivers’ World Championship while Citroën is first in the manufacturers’ one, so it’s all very positive. Even though we didn’t win, I found the battle in the New Zealand rally was very exciting to follow. This season is very indecisive and above all, we must never let up. We’ve only got a five-point lead in the manufacturers’ championship so that shows how close our battle is with our rival. I’d like to say bravo to Dani Sordo, Sébastien Ogier’s progress and Kimi Raïkkönen’s courage. Our four crews are really grandstanding the Citroën colours.”
Citroën’s involvement in the WRC seems to be pretty solid. Why?
"Throughout its history the make’s been involved in road-going sporting adventures. Today, rallying is part of Citroën’s DNA and the WRC is the pinnacle of this sport. It’s run on a worldwide basis in the best sense of the word, and it’s in phase with our image. For an innovative manufacturer like Citroën involved in on-going research for new technologies, rallying is an ideal showcase. Each of our victories all over the world demonstrates the values of creative technology.”
You will be present at the Portuguese Rally? What does this event represent for Citroën?
“First and foremost, it is an important commercial market as Citroën is among the leaders in terms of private vehicle sales and leads the utility vehicle section. Our volume of sales for private vehicles has gone up by more than 19% from the start of the year to the end of April.
The Portuguese Rally is one of the historic events in the world championship. Far from hanging on to the past, the organizers are doing a great job in terms of promotion. Everything’s being done for the spectators beginning with the super special in the Algarve stadium. Citroën, its branches and its partners are taking advantage of this event to put on public relations operations. We’ll have a lot of people supporting the team and its drivers next weekend!”
