5th and 6th places for Timmy Hansen and Sebastien Loeb respectively in the final at Loheac wasn’t the result that Team PEUGEOT Total wanted on home territory in front of 80,000 enthusiastic fans, but nonetheless all 3 drivers showed considerable fighting spirit and pace through the weekend. Only a series of circumstances and racing incidents compromised their chance to do better – but this is all part of the frenetic and closely-matched sport of rallycross, where just the smallest misadventure can have big consequences. The team’s Junior, Kevin Hansen, also showed plenty of speed, going as far as the semi-final. Next up is Latvia in 2 weeks, where the whole team will be concentrated on ensuring a better result.

Team PEUGEOT Total scored 2nd and 3rd at the Canadian round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship (#7/12) with Timmy Hansen and Sebastien Loeb respectively. It’s a positive result that provides a useful boost of both driver and team points, especially considering that this is just the 2nd competitive outing for the latest PEUGEOT 208 WRX Evo, which only made its debut in Sweden last month. This result is also a fair reward to the entire PEUGEOT Sport team, which has been working hard to become competitive in a short period of time. The team’s junior Kevin Hansen, driving an earlier 2018-specification car, was less lucky, stopped in his tracks by a technical issue in the semi-final, after confirming his growing pace throughout the weekend up to that point.
