Conrad to use C4 in Mexico

Zimbabwean rallying ace Conrad Rautenbach will make the step up to a Citroen C4 WRC as the 2008 World Rally Championship heads to Mexico for round 3.

Conrad, the 2006 British Junior Champion and the reigning African Rally Champion has been campaigning a Citroen Xsara so far this year, with mixed results. But following a successful test in the south of France last week the 23 year old is looking forward to his first gravel event of 2008 and his debut appearance in the new C4.

I tested the C4 recently and immediately found a good feeling with the car, as it suits my driving style more. It is quite a different animal to the Xsara but I am confident that a combination of a good setup and going to gravel, a surface I am more familiar with, will help me adjust to the new car.

The world rally cars really are a step up from what I'm used to. There has been quite a lot to learn but I'm loving the experience.

Conrad, who is co-driven by Englishman David Senior, is planning to contest the full World Rally Championship with Citroen Sport Technology and is relishing the challenge of contesting a host of new events and gaining experience.
