Ten excellent photos of the Citroën C4 WRC flying through the air of Italy, New Zealand, Finland, Norway and Sweden have been released by the automaker to build excitement for the upcoming Rally Finland.  Trying to catch the "big air" moments, the ten pix feature driver Sébastien Loeb and others pushing their cars to incredible limits.

"It was an incredible sensation as we were up in the air for several seconds," Loeb said of a massive 85-meter jump in Turkey.  "Not for a moment did we imagine that we would jump so far."

Loeb's jump took place during the Ballica stage in April.  Not all of the pictures are from this season, and come from various stages since 2001.


Thrills, spills, and ‘big air' are synonymous with World Rallying.

During April's Rally of Turkey, Citroën's Sébastien Loeb literally took off on the fast Ballica stage propelling his C4 WRC car an incredible 85 metres into the air.

To celebrate over six years at the top of the sport, Citroën has picked ten of its most spectacular gravity defying jumps ahead of next weekend's Rally Finland.

These stunning photos were captured on events including New Zealand, Sweden, Italy, Norway and arguably the spiritual home of ‘big air' moments - Finland.

Commenting on his incredible Turkish jump, Loeb said: "It was an incredible sensation as we were up in the air for several seconds. Not for a moment did we imagine that we would jump so far."

The Citroën Total World Rally Team have been competing in the FIA World Rally Championship since 2001 during which they have won five manufacturers titles and powered Sébastien Loeb to all six of his World Drivers' Championship crowns to make him the most successful rally driver in history.

The Frenchman heads into round eight of the 2010 championship in Finland with a 51 point lead over his closest rival and firmly in the hunt for a record seventh drivers' crown. The Citroën Total World Rally Team also holds a 47 point lead in the Manufacturers' standings.

The DS3 Racing is supposed to be that car. It's a little way off though, probably due out next year, to coincide with the DS3's entrance into WRC.
