Re enters Monza Rally Show.

Citroen Sport Technologies and the Italian company Vieffecorse has announced that Felice Re, the winner of the Italian Rally Championship's Tropheo Asphalto, will drive a C4 WRC in the Monza Rally Show next weekend.

PH Sport will be responsible for running the car in the event, which brings the Italian motor sport calendar to a close. It sees drivers do battle across three different stages at the Monza circuit, with penalties handed out to any driver who knocks over a bollard during their run through the test.

The three stages will be used a variety of times to make up an event of eight special stages and nearly 150km of competitive action.

"Following our outing with Urmo Aava in Estonia, this is the first time a Citroen C4 WRC will be seen on a non-WRC event where it is not driven by either Sebastien Loeb or Dani Sordo,” Citroen Sport Technologies manager Benoit Nogier said. “It is nice to be competing in this prestigious event, and at a venue which is steeped in history. The entry list features all the Italian rallying scene's big names and the weekend stands out as a first class opportunity for us to showcase the high standard of our products and the service we provide."

Re, who finished fifth in the event last year driving a Skoda, admitted he couldn't wait to get behind the wheel of the C4 for the event.

"It's fantastic to be taking part in this rally in the car with which Sebastien Loeb became World Champion for the fifth year running," he said. "The results notched up during year in the WRC by Urmo Aava and Conrad Rautenbach with the customer specification car show that it is one of the market's best privateer WRC cars. The Monza Rally Show is an event I enjoy and we will do all we can to win it this year."
