The WTCC Trophy leader and past Shanghai International Circuit winner replaces fellow Sébastien Loeb Racing privateer Tom Chilton in partnering factory aces José María López and Yvan Muller. It will be Bennani’s first WTCC MAC3 appearance since WTCC Race of Germany in late May.
But while the Citroën line-up is tweaked, Team Honda’s works stars Rob Huff, Norbert Michelisz and Tiago Monteiro will continue to represent the Japanese make. Team LADA Sport’s trio of Nicky Catsburg, Gabriele Tarquini and Hugo Valente remains unchanged.
WTCC MAC3 is scheduled to take place at 15h30 local time on Saturday.
