Citroën Xsara General Information

After Citroën got bored with their Raid (i.e. Paris-Dakar) project using what was basically a Peugeot 205/405 T16 with a Citroen ZX shell, Citroën looked at proper rallying again. The easiest and most promising way was to copy company sister Peugeot's F2 rally project. Indeed the Citroen Xsara Kit Car is a car very closely related to the Peugeot 306 Maxi, nearly all incredients are the same. And like the 306, the Xsara turned a big success story very soon. In F2 rallying the Xsara and the 306 seemed to be in a different league to all their opposition and the Xsara even managed to win two WRC events outright! It was the only car to do so. The 306 Maxi came very, very close to a Tour de Corse victory with Francois Delecour in 1998, while the Tour de Corse victory of Philippe Bugalski in the Renault Maxi Mégane in 1996 does not really count as this was an F2 only event. However it was Bugalski who won proper WRC events Catalunya and Tour de Corse 1999 in the Citroën Xsara F2.
