WTCC: Citroën completes five-day test in Abu Dhabi

By ,

Citroën Racing was hard at work this past week, testing the C-Elysée ahead of its World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) debut this year.

All three drivers of the French team attended the venue at Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina Circuit.

José-María López started the test on Friday, with Sébastien Loeb taking over on Sunday. The nine time WRC champion drove until his countryman Yvan Muller replaced him for the last day on Tuesday.

Citroën also invited Abu Dhabi Racing chairman Sheikh Khalid Al Qassimi to participate. The WRC regular drove the C-Elysée on Monday evening.

Loeb is now headed to another test venue in Argentina. He will drive a car from a local touring car series around the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit.
