Dani Sordo and the Citroen C4 WRC kick off the X-Fighters

At a display in Madrid that formed part of the 2008 Red Bull X-Fighters tour, Dani Sordo and the Citroen C4 WRC captivated huge crowds with a stunning demonstration that opened the show.

Following on from Fort Worth in the United States, then Mexico City and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, the Spanish capital hosted the fourth round of the International Freestyle Motocross competition organised by Red Bull.

As part of the partnership that has linked Citroen with the Austrian energy drinks firm since the Argentina Rally in March this year, Dani Sordo, Marc Marti and their Citroen C4 WRC were invited to take part. For both the Spanish crew and for Citroen, the event marked a historic first.

In front of an enthusiastic crowd of 25,000 motorsport fans, Dani had the privilege of kicking off the show to spectacular effect. In the spiritual home of bullfighting, the Citroen driver mastered his C4 like a skilful torero, making it dance with grace and artistry. As the opening act he performed several doughnuts thrilling the capacity crowds with the roar of the Citroen's engine.

Sordo, who is currently fifth in the FIA World Rally Championship, thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the welcome afforded to both himself and his co-driver Marc Marti, as well as to their Citroen C4 WRC that was resplendent in its Red Bull livery. Afterwards, the rally stars stayed on to watch the Motocross riders demonstrate their skills: another truly impressive spectacle.
