The World Rally Championship (WRC) comes to Great Britain for round 10 in September 2012. Eight-time champion, Sébastien Loeb, driving Citroën’s Facom-sponsored DS3 WRC rally car, will undoubtedly be looking to extend his lead at this famous stage, which has been held in Wales since the WRC was established in 1973.

As an official sponsor and tool supplier of the Citroën team, Facom celebrated this successful partnership by launching a limited-edition range of WRC-themed products earlier in the season, which the company is keen to publicise in advance of Wales Rally GB.
