Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

French­man Terry Folb will look to turn his as­so­ci­a­tion with nine-time World Rally Cham­pion Se­bastien Loeb to his ad­van­tage in this year’s Ju­nior WRC, which starts with this week’s Rally of Por­tu­gal.

Folb, 25, drives for Loeb’s team this sea­son and was the JWRC pace­man in the sec­ond half of last sea­son, end­ing the year with three suc­ces­sive podi­ums. This year’s Citroen one-make series is the first full sea­son of ral­ly­ing Se­bastien Loeb Rac­ing has un­der­taken.

Folb will face stiff com­pe­ti­tion this sea­son, with Ole Chris­tian Veiby rated among the favourites. The 19-year-old won the fi­nal Ju­nior round in Wales last sea­son and took the WRC3 class on Jan­uary’s Monte Carlo for a sea­son warm-up.
