    Default Citroen DS entry in the 1995 Mobil 1 Round Australia Trial

    I was a competitor in this event and noted a beautifully presented DS (I think, as I am no Citroen expert). It disappeared somewhere between Brisbane and Sydney and I heard it had had terminal engine failure when a floor mat stuck under the accelerator pedal. I think Mal Crockenberg may have been the entrant. Can anyone clarify this and advise the final fate of this car? To the best of my knowledge it has not re-emerged in later long distance road events.

    The Reddiex/Crockenberg DS23 is the one I was curious about. Does anyone know the facts of its demise in 1995 and what happened to it since?
