Eight-time World Rally champion Sébastien Ogier was primed to defend his title at the 2022 World Rallycross season opener at Monte Carlo. As the four-day event progressed, the man who’d dominated Rallycross for the last decade was in the lead… until he found himself competing with an unexpected aggressor: a 47-year-old dude who hadn’t participated in a WRC event in over a year, driving a car he’d never raced. It was Sébastien Loeb. How did Sébastien Loeb become a racing icon, despite not getting behind the wheel of a professional car until he was 21? How has he been able to dominate the highest levels of Rallycross, but take on Le Mans, The X-games, and The World Touring Car Championship? And what do other pillars of the racing world think of our boy Seb? We have answers to those questions and a whole lot more. Today on Past Gas, a closer look at modern racing legend - Sébastien Loeb.
