Father and Son Week: The Loubets

Born in Corsica with a name like Loubet and a father who once wore Lancia’s famous Martini stripes, Pierre-Louis was bound to follow Yves to the stages. In just his second season, he set about WRC 2 in a DS 3 R5. That progression in the global series is what sets his career apart from his father Yves’. Despite a lack of four-wheel drive experience, Loubet led his home WRC round for four stages and ultimately finished second. Pierre-Louis lifted last year’s WRC 2 crown and has now stepped up to drive an i20 Coupe WRC with the Hyundai Customer Racing squad. Pierre-Louis’s famous father is always at the end of a telephone, but he’s not one for sharing his son’s limelight.
