Official: Loubet leaves 2C Competition for 2022

Pierre-Louis Loubet confirms that he will not anymore drive for 2C Competition and he is working on staying in WRC next year.

The French driver joined 2C Competition back in 2019 driving a Skoda Fabia R5 in ERC and in WRC2 events while he did three outings with the Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC of this private team (Rally Estonia, Rally Turkey, Rally Italia Sardegna) in the next year.

This year, he signed a full-season program with the 2C Competition, but he skipped Safari Rally Kenya as Hyundai Motorsport decided to give to Oliver Solberg the opportunity to drive the Rally1 car of the team there.

However, he was forced to skip the rest of this season and specifically he did not participate in the two last events of this year's World Rally Championship as he was injured in his hip after an accident he had in France, therefore he has to recover from the surgery he underwent.

"We had a two-year contract and at the end of the contract we decided to not continue", Loubet said.

"We did a lot of good things and I think for me and for them it’s great that we’ve been able to be in WRC. 

"We had some very, very good moments.

"It was so difficult this year for many, many different reasons; I will not speak about that because now it’s finished. 

"But yes, we won this WRC2 title with such a high level so I will always be thankful for that".

Finally, he answered when he was asked if he would return to WRC next season: "For the moment I can say nothing, we are working on it. 

"I hope so.

"It has been a super tough season but now I’m much stronger, so I really, really hope next season will be a good one".
