    Meeke’s test in Mondim was stopped over one hour during afternoon for some tech repair. I’ve managed to see a few passes before that and the C3 looks amazing. It’s hard to notice the speed difference from the DS on the corners but overall the C3 looks much more flamboyant and it’s a rocket at the straights. Hope to see the i20 next Thursday. Definitely, ’17 WRC cars rocks!

    it looks as if whatever citreon have found for their tarmac test on the suspension, they also have found something similar here on gravel. it looks amazing on every single video.

    The C3 has looked fast on gravel for a long time in tests (and then in Mexico).

    They just need reliability in both the car (engine) and the driver (Meeke) for success.

    Still we don't know how much they are pushing. What if they just found a comfortable pace and gain mileage on it, like those tests before Monte? What if uploaders choose 20 good passes among 50 bad ones so that their videos look more attractive?

    yes its possible,or from the repeated runs the gravel is swept,and maybe it will be totally different at loose gravel at rally time,but when you watch several videos cant all the uploaders choose only the fast passes.
    Except that the estimation even before Monte was right,from what we had seen from several videos.

    nice Sordo clip
