Success At Home for Team Peugeot Hansen

Posted on:

Team Peugeot Hansen brought home a dominating victory in France’s stage of the 2015 FIA World Rallycross Championship at Lohéac.

Team Peugeot Hansen brought home a dominating victory in France’s stage of the 2015 FIA World Rallycross Championship at Lohéac. Timmy Hansen managed to secure the 208 WRX’s fourth victory and eight podium finish of the season.

Before the race Team Principle, Kenneth Hansen stated that a victory at Lohéac was “mandatory” as there was enormous pressure for Peugeot to perform in front of their home crowd. A total of 65,000 people came to spectate at one of the most celebrated venues on the Rallycross calendar. Peugeot certainly made their presence prominent at the venue by showcasing their collection of racing cars on display which included the incredible 208 T16 Pikes Peak.

The two Peugeot 208 WRX Supercars already showed promise racing to victory at previous venues including Norway, Canada and Germany. The cars host 550bhp four-cylinder two-litre turbocharged engines combined with Sadev 6-speed transmission which can achieve 0-100 km/h in approximately 2 seconds!

In the hands of the 23 year old Swedish driver, Timmy Hansen, the 208 WRX’s qualifying heats were sensational. In the semi-final Timmy made a perfect run to secure the all-important 1st place on the grid for the final. This allowed for him to pull away in the final while the rest of the field were scrambling for position, putting in six faultless laps ending the tremendous weekend with his second win of the season.

“I can’t find words to describe how good it feels to have won in France with Peugeot! The French love French cars and I was thrilled with the support they gave me.” Timmy Hansen, #21 208 WRX

The weekend did not go so well for French team-mate, Davy Jeanney, with a variety of setbacks and an unfortunate incident led to the car being forced off-track by a competitor during the semi-finals.

“I hit a guard-rail head-on and there was no way I could have continued after that. The team now faces a big job to get the car ready in time for Barcelona.” Davy Jeanney, #17 208 WRX

Timmy’s win at the home race has consolidated Team Peugeot Hansen’s lead at the top of the Team Standings with 328 points with Ford Olsbergs MSE behind at 275 points. The excitement will carry on to the next race, which will be held at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for the opening World Rallycross of Spain.
