Citroën and Ford reveal their new WRC aero packages for 2017

In the last week, Citroën and Ford have started to test what it looks to be their definitive aero package for the coming season. Citroën revealed during the second part of their test 7 a new rear wing with two irregular blades, which are supported by two swan neck arms, very similar to Polo WRC’s new supports.

The angle of attack seems to be lower than in previous wing configuration, while the upper blade is not regular in shape.

Ends of upper blades are open, similarly to new Polo design.

Jaume Soler’s pictures show a new rear wing with two side small additional wings, very similar to Toyota Auris WRC, although smaller in size.

New wing consists of two blades supported by side panels, with significant separation between blades and high angle of attack, and no vertical fins.
