Demoustier joined Sebastien Loeb Racing
Sebastien Loeb Racing team confirmed Gregoire Demoustier as their second driver for WTCC 2016 campaign.
The 24-year-old driver spent his debut season in the series with Craft Bamboo team driving Chevrolet RML Cruze TC1, finishing 20th in the Drivers’ championship, scoring five points.
Now he will get a chance to drive Citroen C-Elysee which was absolutely dominant in 2015 and together with his teammate Mehdi Bennani could be involved in battle for Yokohama Teams’ championship trophy.
“I could not hope to get better chance as this team is perfect. I am happy to join French team that has shown ability to fully utilise the Citroen C-Elysee. This car proved its capacity on track, but I am curious to see its behaviour when driving. After all, my ambitions are higher now. I learned a lot in my first season and I hope to achieve something more,” told Demoustier.
Sebastien Loeb Racing still has to name third driver for the next season, while Craft Bamboo is expected to leave WTCC, concentrating to TCR International series and GT races.
