Sometimes team bosses get bored of all the bossing and telling everyone what to do. Sometimes they want to step out of the office and have some good old fashion fun. Because why not. As former competitors they remember the thrill and the excitement of competing. Many bosses and other “senior” officials often compete in national or other rallies – once you’ve tasted the sweet nectar of rallying you can only come back to it (as often as possible).
Recently Citroën Racing boss Yves Matton joined Daniel Elena, nine times world rally champion co-driver, for a one off event in Belgium. Daniel’s regular driver (or should we say ex driver) Sebastien Loeb also competed, co-driven by his wife Severine. Loebs won, because hey, it’s double the Loeb.
Sit back and enjoy the ride on one of the stages of Rallye Condroz, your hosts are Yves Matton and Daniel Elena and you’re cruising around in the Citroën Xsara WRC.
