World Rally Championships
TOTAL is proud to supply high-performance lubricants to Citroën, powering its cars to regular victories at the World Rally Championships (WRC). In 2011, the Citroën Total team won its seventh World Manufacturers' title, while Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena clinched their eight consecutive drivers' world title. We provide the engine oil, transmission oil, and liquid for the hydraulic system, as well as a skilled support crew.
Our engineers are meeting the challenge to develop a lubricant that can produce an oil film just a few microns thick, while still reducing friction for perfect engine performance. Our team frequently analyzes oil samples to ensure that Citroën's WRC DS3 cars are getting the best from our lubricants, whether in the searing heat of Cyprus or the plunging temperatures of Sweden. With only one engine allowed at every other rally, TOTAL's delivery of world-class products - whatever the conditions - is key to the Citroën-Total Team's success.
