Guerlain still has a relationship with MINI/JCooper Works via his GRAVI-T freestyle rally team, where he drives a MINI Cooper - most notably earlier in the year pulled off an reverse flip in one off a specially prepared freestyle jump at TIGNES in France.

Yep, after a few successful years with X-Raid in the X-3CCR's (including one FIA CCR Championship title), Chicherit was given the job in DAKAR 2011 of giving the MINI All4 racer it's competition debut.

Apparently, team priority #1 (other than the remaining team X-3's to compete with VW for the overall) was that the MINI finish...

During the rest day, the team took the Mini out for a "shakedown" after it had recieved a "rest day" refurbishing. With Chicherit at the wheel, it went into a hole and was totalled...

He parted company with the X-Raid team as a result and spent twelve months looking for a drive (missed DAKAR 2012). For 2013 he was back in a 2WD SMG Buggy - which he showed good speed with, but by his own comment was too fragile/not reliable enough.

Now for 2014, sees him in one of the new EVR cars, presumeably with long time sponsor ONSTER on the side?

Many of the various generations of the ZX's (there were several) were broken down/dismantled once their life as rally vehicles came to and end... Citröen had a policy of not selling these vehicles on to privateer teams.

A few of them were kept as museum pieces and I know of (at least one) that was sold to a private collector - this was one of the latest spec versions as driven by Pierre Lartigue and Ari Vatanen in the 1997 season... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0f_ZnggWfME the last year they were eligible in competition.

Those things would still compete with todays top level vehicles... heaven help us if Citröen (or Pugeot) come back, with the "freedom" of the FIA 2WD rules as they are now.

One thing is, if they do - Chicherit would make a good "fit" in such a (french) team along with Seb Loeb and the brainstrust...

Someone at the ASO graphics dept. obviously had not rtead the fineprint on their "pre-nuptual" agreement, the pic's leaked out and the sh1t hit the f5an... Maybe Etienne needs to get a hold of RG's leaks lawyer on the job to draw up some non-disclosure clauses?

I would think they put the Peugeot 205T16 group B rally body work back on them, since they would be worth more?
