The 2017 FIA World Rally Championship season continues next weekend with the only winter rally event of the year taking place in Sweden.

Earlier this week, Paddock Eye caught up with Citroen Racing’s Craig Breen who will drive he new C3 WRC for the first time next weekend. The Waterford native told us he was heading to Sweden on Saturday to test the car in snow conditions which is what he and his rivals will expect next weekend.

I can’t see why not, the whole thing was a bit of a disaster in Monte but as like I said there were so many different factors that were out of our control so I think in Sweden the weather is taking a bit of a turn in a good way so hopefully we’ll have conditions that we can work on and I think we will start to get a real reflection on everybody’s packages especially by the test and with all the effort the guys back at the factory have put in, I can’t see why our package won’t be one of the best so I am really looking forward to it.
