Loeb And Citroen Make It 3 In A Row At Monte Carlo

Mon Jan 24, 2005 5:11 pm


For the third year in a row, Sébastien Loeb, his Monaco-born co-driver Daniel Elena and the Citroën Xsara have triumphed in rallying's oldest and most prestigious fixture. In addition to leading from start to finish and claiming the highest number of stage wins, they put in a faultless run to add panache to their incontestable success, the eleventh of their career together.

Sébastien's exploit sees him join the ranks of those drivers who have forged the legend of the Monte Carlo Rally, including such celebrated names as Sandro Munari and Walter Röhrl (four wins each, including three-in-a-row), Tommi Mäkinen (four consecutive wins), Didier Auriol and Carlos Sainz (three non consecutive wins each).

Way to go  Big thumbs up

Some wicked spectators have thrown snow on the road, otherwise a clean rally where Seb won yet again. I wonder though about next year, what car
will he drive?
