Sebastien Loeb To Drive Ferrari

1 Mins read

World Rally Championship dominator Sebastien Loeb will make another of his forays into sports car racing this weekend, driving a Ferrari F430 in the French GT3 Championship.

The six-time champion is no stranger to sports cars, having contested the 24 Hours of Le Mans twice and have previously raced a GT Porsche in France.

However, the entry, run by the Pro GT team, at the Val de Vienne track will be his first outing in a Ferrari, though he will be united once more with co-driver and friend Jean-Pierre Champeau who has previously driven with Loeb in the French GT Championship.

Loeb has insisted that his weekend is “purely for pressure” according to a story on wrc.com rather than the first step in the move to track racing that he is repeatedly connected to. In fact, Loeb hopes the race will help him prepare for the first tarmac rally of the WRC season in Bulgaria, a fortnight after Loeb's Ferrari experience.
