KTR- CitroŽn: Hydro-pneumatic series

Affordable, comfortable, modern... That's a CitroŽn with hydro-pneumatic suspension. The first model CitroŽn built with HPN suspension was the DS. When the car was first presented CitroŽn got 12000 orders -749 in the first 45 minutes. That exceded CitroŽn's production capability.

The car remained in production since 1955 to 1973 and equiped the following engines:
DS 1.9 (75 and 83 hp)
DS 2.1 (109 hp)
DS 2.3 (115 hp)
DS 2.3 efi (130 hp)

The DS was the oficial car of the President of the French Republic.

CitroŽn SM

Even though 'enron fever' didn't like it , the SM CitroŽn is one of the most desired models by CitroŽn lovers. It was conceived as an sports car wearing Hydro-pneumatic suspension. Fast and comfortable, it was designed with a very low aerodynamical resistance.

If you want to learn more about the SM, just visit www.citroensm.net

Here go some pictures:

Are there oval race tracks in the UK or Europe for that matter...and if there are, which way are they racing around. Clockwise or Counter-clockwise?

I can tell you from experience that the stock car tracks in the UK travel clockwise and the ones in western Europe travel anti-clockwise, otherwise known as counter-clockwise to us Yanks.

Thanks vwhobo...going anti-clockwise in a right-hand drive car would be quite the "blinding" experience...this is speculation on my part.

Okey dokey. Just in case it ever comes up in the future, drag racers in both the UK and the continent go straight ahead just like in the states.

I'm sorry to contradict you, but that's not a... 'scientifical law'.
In Europe there are not competitiosn such as nascar. Our stock car races are quite different and also the circuits do. Grand Tourism Championship, Hyundai Cup, ETCC, Supertourism Championship, Alfa Romeo Cup... All of them run at the same circuits as the F1, F3, F3000 and MotoGP, and being clockwise or anti-clockwise doesn't depend on the country te circuit is placed.

The circuit where I work cars travel anti-clockwise, but at Barcelona's circuit cars travel clockwise.

"My" circuit: Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana 'Ricardo Tormo' www.circuitvalencia.com
The one at Bcn: Circuit de Catalunya www.circuitcat.com

Some pictures at Valencia's circuit (Hyundai Cup and Spain's GT Championship)

Now read the question again. It says ovals not road courses.

You are 100% right and I stand corrected. Rockingham was built after I left the UK and I completely forgot about it, however as you know it is the exception in England.
