Loubet aims to return in WRC by Rally Sweden

Pierre-Louis Loubet wants to return in World Rally Championship by the start of Rally Sweden after his contract with 2C Competition expired at the end of 2021.

The young driver competed almost in all events of the 2021 World Rally Championship and he was driving the Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC of the private team, 2C Competition.

However, he was forced to miss Safari Rally Kenya as his team decided to give an opportunity to Oliver Solberg to drive this car while he did not participate in the last three rounds of last year's Championship as he went a hip surgery after the accident he had.

"Competing in Andros Trophy is six laps, it’s not the same physically as doing a WRC round", Loubet said.

"It’s not possible for me to do Monte Carlo, but I’m hoping to maybe be there in the WRC in February. 

"It was hard in October and November, I’m happy to be doing some sport again.

"We had a two-year contract with 2C and that ended. 

"We’re working on it a WRC return and I’m hopeful. 

"Last year was a tough season, but we have shown what we can do at a high level when we won WRC2 in 2019".
