Sébastien Loeb to Compete at 2015 Rallye Monte-Carlo in a DS3 WRC!
Nine-time World Rally Champions and seven-time winners of the Rallye Monte-Carlo, Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena are to return to competive action in a DS3 WRC at the Rallye Monte-Carlo, the opening round of the 2015 World Rally Championship.
This one-off appearance, at the most prestigious rally on the WRC calendar, will support the launch of the DS Brand.
From Sweden to Australia, and passing through the likes of Argentina, the WRC is undoubtedly the greatest challenge in contemporary motorsport due to the variety of road surfaces and weather conditions encountered. With two world titles and 23 wins under its belt, DS3 WRC has one of the best competitive records of the cars currently racing in the WRC. The legendary Rallye Monte-Carlo (19-25 January) will once again kick off the season in the south-east of France.
The two DS3 WRCs nominated to score points in the Manufacturers’ championship will be driven by Kris Meeke/Paul Nagle – already confirmed as a works crew for the full season – and a couple of familiar faces! Leading specialists at a rally that they have won no fewer than seven times, Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena will take on the challenge once again as they return to road racing more than a year after the end of their shared career.
