VIDEO: Rally legend Seb Loeb harks back to his roots in WTCC at Macau

0 Comments

Nine-time world rally champion Sebastien Loeb may have made the switch to the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) for 2014, but quite clearly, his roots still remain.

Loeb ruled over the rally world with an iron fist before stepping back at the end of 2012, having won every championship since 2004 and broken every record going.

In the WTCC this year, he has enjoyed a solid debut season, winning two races to rank third in the standings heading to the final race of the year at the legendary Macau Grand Prix this weekend.

However, as shown in the above video, he still has some of his rally roots in his driving style, kicking out the back end of the car when negotiating the notorious Melco hairpin.

You can take Seb Loeb out of rallying, but you cannot take rallying out of Seb Loeb, it seems.
