Folb hoping for Loeb help in Junior WRC
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.
