Ogier to take on Loeb in Monaco

Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup
It’s going to be another battle of the Sebastiens at the next Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup round in Monaco (23 May), when Volkswagen’s Sebastien Ogier takes on nine-time World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb in the 338 kW (460 hp) 911 GT3 Cup machines.

Following his first outing in Barcelona where he finished a lowly 11th, 39-year old Loeb will once again be piloting the Porsche AG-run VIP car, while his 29-year-old compatriot will be a guest of the ‘Team Allyouneed by Project 1’ in what will be the first time the two rally stars have gone head-to-head on a tarmacked circuit.

“I am really looking forward to Monaco. I sat in the Porsche for the first time last week at a test session in Hockenheim. I will obviously be keeping half an eye on Sebastien Loeb. The desire to be better is always there – but Seb has much more experience on racetracks. With that in mind, I will be trying to enjoy the weekend and, as always, do my very best,” said the Polo R WRC driver.
