Citroën Racing aces Sébastien Loeb and José María López will be taking a break from their FIA World Touring Car Championship preparations in the Argentine capital Buenos Aires on Sunday.
Loeb, López and Turismo Nacional champion Matias Rossi will be the star attractions at a promotional event organised by Citroën Argentina at the intersection between Avenida Diagonal Norte and Calle Suipacha from 14h00 on 1 March.
On Tuesday afternoon, Loeb, López and team-mate Yvan Muller will travel to Córdoba to provide support and comfort to victims of recent flooding in the city. Then on Wednesday evening the Citroën-driving trio will be on the streets of Santiago del Estero to meet fans ahead of WTCC Race of Argentina from 6-8 March.
Eurosport’s coverage of the 2015 FIA World Touring Car Championship will incorporate social media integration for the first time with driver Twitter and Instagram activity featuring on a split-screen view before each race and during the repair time.
Thanks to software from specialist company Spreadfast, fans will get to read the latest thoughts from drivers and view rare images from inside the cockpit before the racing gets underway.
While Eurosport has used social media integration in its coverage of the Australian Open tennis tournament and various winter sports events, it has never been used in motorsport programming before, meaning the WTCC Race of Argentina will mark a notable first.
Fans of the FIA World Touring Car Championship will get to hear the real story behind the key moments of each round of the series thanks to WTCC Over the Line, an all-new programme exclusive to Fiawtcc.com.
Aired on the evening of each race, WTCC Over the Line is presented by Ben Constanduros live from the paddock with reaction interviews by Alexandra Legouix. It will feature footage of on-track scrapes, skirmishes and other notable incidents and then hear directly from the protagonists.
The first showing of WTCC Over the Line will be available at Fiawtcc.com from 23h00 CET on Sunday 8 March. There will be an opportunity for fans to interact with the host and guests.
