Sebastien Loeb goes fastest in Q2 at home event

Written by  Sep 02, 2017

France’s Sebastien Loeb set the quickest Q2 time in the French round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship at Loheac and leads the Intermediate Classification overnight. 

Team Peugeot-Hansen driver Loeb won the last race of the Q2 session to be quickest from Q1 winner Johan Kristoffersson and America’s Ken Block.

With a first and second position each, Loeb and Kristoffersson are tied on 95 qualifying points ahead of Q3 and Q4 tomorrow morning.

Ken Block is third. All three Peugeot-Hansen cars are inside the top ten overnight, Sweden’s Timmy Hansen is seventh and Kevin Hansen is eighth. 

“I’m very happy. This was a very good start of the race for us, second in Q1 and first in Q2,” said Loeb. “This is a track where I feel well and it suits our car well also – there’s a lot of grip everywhere and our car is performant when there is grip, we struggle a bit more when it’s slippery."

"The feeling and the setup feels very good; I was confident in the driving, I had very good starts, I could just push and do my job which was great." Added Loeab

"To drive here in front of so many spectators was just incredible. The atmosphere is like nowhere else.” 

Norway’s Andreas Bakkerud and Block had a close race in Q2. Bakkerud was fourth, Latvia’s Janis Baumanis was fifth and Sweden’s Mattias Ekstrom sixth. Sweden’s Kevin Hansen, Norway’s Petter Solberg, Switzerland’s Nico Muller and Sweden’s Timmy Hansen completed the top ten. 

In the FIA European Rallycross Championship for Supercar, it was a repeat of the Q1 top three in Q2, Sweden’s Anton Marklund ahead of Norway’s Tommy Rustad and Thomas Bryntesson.

France’s Cyril Raymond was fastest in Q1, Q2 and Q3 in the RX2 International Series.
