Citroën UK has treated three blind date couples to the ultimate version of ‘speed dating’, by hosting their first dates while being driven at speed around a rally stage. The special ‘speed dating’ session involved the couples getting to know each other whilst being driven around the Brands Hatch rally stage in a Citroën C3 by World Rally Championship driver, Craig Breen. The activity took place to celebrate the return of Channel 4’s First Dates Hotel on 28 August 2018 and Citroën’s broadcast sponsorship of the series. The hit TV show’s star waitress, CiCi Coleman, was on hand throughout the day to host each of the three couples and serve crêpes from a classic Citroën H Van – after they had been taken around the gravel rally stage.
The C3 supermini has soared in popularity since its launch in January 2017 to become Citroën UK’s best-seller. C3 delivers outstanding design and comfort, inspired by the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, and features the world’s first built-in dashcam –ConnectedCAM Citroën® – that was used to video some of the footage for the special First Dates films.
