The Citroën C4 WRC has scooped the Rally Car of the Year crown at the prestigious Autosport Awards - for the second year in a row. This follows a fifth Manufacturers’ title for the Citroën Total World Rally Team and an unprecedented sixth consecutive World Rally Championship for Sébastien Loeb - secured in dramatic fashion by a single point on the final day of the 2009 season.


The 2010 World Rally Championship will see the Citroën Total World Rally Team enter C4 WRCs for Sébastien Loeb and Dani Sordo. A second team will also now run two C4 WRCs for Kimi Räikkönen and Sébastien Ogier in the colours of Red Bull and Citroën.

Citroën UK Managing Director, Gary Savage, who accepted the award from 1981 WRC Champion Ari Vatanen, commented, “It has been a terrific season for everyone at Citroën to win the championship for a fifth time. Next year, I think having Kimi Räikkönen will be great for the WRC - a contemporary F1 driver, and former world champion, racing against Sébastien Loeb, in such a good car, will be really exciting.”
