France’s Sebastien Loeb will return to the FIA World Rallycross Championship for a second season in 2017, starting this weekend at the opening round of the Championship in Barcelona.

Driving a new Peugeot 208 WRX for Team Peugeot-Hansen, Loeb says that although he enjoyed racing in rallycross last year – his inaugural full season in the sport – he hopes for better results in the early part of 2017 with the new car.


“I found last season very exciting. It’s very fun to make six starts in a weekend when you make it to the final, which for us last year was not always the case. The cars are amazing, the battles are really intense and I enjoy it a lot,
