Peugeot And Citroen To Cease Participation In World Rally Championship After 2005

In five consecutive years of competition in the World Rally Championship, Peugeot and Citroen have between them won five manufacturer’s titles and three driver’s titles. These results reflect the diligent and passionate determination of each marque, backed by a substantial financial commitment to motor sports competition.

This sustained success, coupled with tougher prevailing conditions in the automotive industry, has led to a review of PSA Peugeot Citroen’s motor sports activities. Peugeot and Citroen will remain strongly committed to the World Rally Championship in 2005 but the Group has decided that the marques will not take part beyond that date.

This will enable the Group to significantly cut its sports budget and create new opportunities in motor sports. In due course, Citroen Sport and Peugeot Sport will announce the disciplines in which they plan to participate after 2005.
