Dakar – Sébastien Loeb aligned with Peugeot in 2016

AUTOhebdo had been talking about Sébastien's interest for more than a year Loeb for the Dakar. The nine-time world champion WRC confirmed his commitment for the next event where he will find his co-pilot Daniel Elena to evaluate in the stages of South America. “ The Dakar is very different from the type of races I'm dedicated to at the moment. It will be very long, more than two weeks! and I will need endurance to manage the car over such a distance. It's another approach to racing. I’m going to find out all about this in January”, commented the Alsatian.

As we announced to you at the beginning of the month, Sébastien Loeb will carry out tests in Morocco in company Carlos Sainz from October 3 to 9. The Frenchman will work on a 2008 from 2015 while the Spaniard will work on the new DKR16 version. “When I tried the Peugeot 2008 DKR in June, she immediately impressed me. And it has evolved a lot since then!… I used to run based on very detailed notes: in rally raid, sometimes you have to find the right track and improvise your trajectory. In addition, it is also the first time that I have driven a diesel engine car in competition. This gives me a lot to discover and I am eager to learn many more! »
