Sebastien-LOEB

Sebastien Loeb

 

Sebastien Loeb's excellent weekend at Mettet, Belgium, concluded with the Frenchman earning Team Peugeot Hansen's first podium finish of the season at Round 3 of the 2016 FIA World Rallycross Championship.

 

"Globally, it was a good weekend for the team. Sébastien hit the ground running and it's a shame Timmy had a jump start in his semi-final, otherwise he would have reached the final as well. We showed that we're competitive, and Kevin's first race in the European Championship was superb. He drove intelligently and won his debut event. That's fantastic!" said Kenneth Hansen, Team Principal.

 

Sebastien Loeb provided further evidence of his all-round skills by claiming his first qualifying heat victory in the FIA World Rallycross Championship on Saturday. He was third after the heats phase before going on to secure second place both in his semi-final and in the final.

 

Team Peugeot Hansen leaves Belgium with the weekend's biggest points haul to climb to third spot in the Teams' standings, just six points short of second place. In the Drivers' standings, Sébastien Loeb is fourth, four points shy of the provisional podium, while Timmy Hansen secured fourth place in his semi-final to appear in 12th position in the championship.

 

"It was a pretty good weekend for me. It's nice to have scored my first podium finish in rallycross and the main thing is that I was competitive throughout the event. I felt comfortable in free practice in this car at this track. I'm beginning to find my marks and I was helped by a positive draw. My starts were good and I succeeded in making the most of them, although it will still need some work before I can start chasing Ekström. He's been fast everywhere so far. At least we were in the fight here in Belgium. We now need to produce a similar performance at Lydden Hill," expressed Sébastien Loeb.

Audi To Celebrate Ten Years Of TDI At Le Mans

Audi has made history at Le Mans. In 2006, the premium brand became the first manufacturer to win what is arguably the world’s toughest endurance race with diesel power. 2016 marks the tenth anniversary of this achievement. Today, the TDI engine is more efficient than ever before and part of a highly complex diesel-hybrid powertrain. Never before has an Audi LMP1 race car been as powerful and fuel-efficient as the current Audi R18.
