Who is he? Loubet will follow in the wheel tracks of father Yves when he chases ERC success in 2018 – almost 30 years since Loubet Sr claimed the prestigious title.
Hyundai’s hero: Yves Loubet took European gold in 1989 driving a Lancia Delta Integrale. Loubet Jr, meanwhile, will have a BRC Racing Team Hyundai i20 R5 at his disposal for his European championship campaign.
Team player: Competing under the Team OSCARO banner with support from the world’s leading online retailer of original automotive spare parts, Loubet is part of the L’Equipe de France FFSA Rallye training initiative, which is playing a key role in honing his skills. Previous beneficiaries of the scheme’s support include Sébastiens Loeb and Ogier, Stéphane Lefebvre and Stéphane Sarrazin.
