Clint Weston, multiple SA champion on both track and rally, will drive the class S1600 Citroen C2R2 Max and help continue with its history of class championships locally and internationally since its FIA competition debut in 2008.

Benchmark in its class

The Citroen C2R2 Max has constantly been making headlines in every competition entered and remains a benchmark in the classes it competes in.

The Neo Africa Citroen C2 R2 Max was one of the first cars built to new FIA Group “R” rules, underlining Citroen’s philosophy of offering groundbreaking products to all its customers.

The C2 R2 Max has shown its potential on both gravel and asphalt in Europe, claiming class wins and competing closely with cars from superior categories. Even more interesting, Multiple World Rally Champion, Sebastian Loeb entered the Junior World Rally Championship driving a Citroen C2 R2 Max.

Sebastian Loeb will be one of the main competitors in the World Rally Cross here in Cape Town and will surely be interested to see our Citroen C2 R2 max competing.

Weston, driver and team owner of Motorsport Marketing, says: “I am extremely confident and believe we will be in a good position to do very well in the World Rally Cross Event. I have a fantastic team support mechanism managed by Freddie Pretorius who heads up the technical side of things. His knowledge and experience will help achieve our goals.
