This means that for the first time since the forced COVID-19 break, the Frenchman will start in the WRC and hunt for points. Loeb plans to run three races this season. In his first guest appearance at the Monte Carlo Rally in January, the 46-year-old crossed the finish line in sixth place.
Loeb is one of three drivers who share the cockpit of the third Hyundai: Craig Breen started for the South Koreans in Sweden, while Dani Sordo contested his only WRC race of the 2020 season in Mexico. The next round of the WRC will take place in Estonia from September 4th to 6th.
