WHEN: April 27, 2012
WHERE: Cordoba, Argentina
WHAT: WRC Rally Argentina
MOTIVATION: Sebastien Loeb, eight-time world champion, won his seventh edition of the argentinian Rally, fifteen seconds ahead of Citroen teammate, the Finnish Mikko Hirvonen. In the picture Loeb is tackling a muddy stretch of the Cordoba stage, race he dominated since the very beginning . “The Cannibal” confirms his reputation by knocking down yet another record: 70 wins out of 150 races throughout his career. Winning the argentinian leg, the fourth in the world championship rally, Loeb leads at 91 points, plainly in command. The ninth title gets closer, to endure the eight years uninterrupted series: it is since 2004 that the French leaves their opponents only crumbs, dust, and mud.
