Thierry Neuville to race for Citroen in the 2012 WRC

Article by Christian A., on December 21, 2011

Thierry Neuville is no stranger to you if you’re a world rallying fan. Neuville is one of the fastest rising stars in this sport. At the 2012 World Championship, the 22-year-old will be driving a Citroën DS3 WRC. He will compete in at least nine events. Neuville will get the chance to prove his abilities as he participates in Citroën Racing, which has shown how committed it is to train and support young drivers.

Neuville, who is originally from Saint-Vith in Belgium, would be driving a Citroën DS3 WRC that Citroën Racing Technologies prepared. Neuville will be supported by fellow Belgian Nicolas Gilsoul as he joins in nine of the 13 rallies in the 2012 World Championship, including Monte-Carlo, Sweden, Mexico, Portugal, Greece, Argentina, Finland, Germany and Great Britain. It’s highly possible that Neuville will also be competing in the French and Spanish rallies.

Some of you may have heard Neuville’s name first when he won the Belgian Citroën Racing Trophy in 2009. At the Junior World Rally Championship (JWRC), Neuville was behind the wheel of a Citroën C2 S1600 in 2010.

He was also seen joining his first IRC rallies while driving a Peugeot 207 S2000. Earlier this year, he was declared the winner of the Tour of Corsica and San Remo rallies. And right up until the last event, he was in contention for the IRC title.
