Nine-time World Rally champion Sébastien Loeb is set to make a special comeback to Extreme E, joining Abt Cupra for the Island X-Prix in Sardinia next weekend. This marks Loeb’s return to the electric off-road series after his previous stints with Lewis Hamilton’s Team X44, where he clinched the championship title last year alongside Cristina Gutiérrez.

Loeb will step in for Nasser Al-Attiyah, who will be competing in the clashing Baja World Cup event. Teaming up with Klara Andersson, Loeb is excited about the opportunity, expressing his readiness to compete and reconnect with the Extreme E atmosphere.

The addition of Loeb to the Abt Cupra lineup brings an exciting dynamic to the team, especially considering his vast experience and success in motorsport. Thomas Biermaier, team principal of Abt Cupra, expressed his delight in securing Loeb as a stand-in, emphasizing the team’s eagerness to perform well in Sardinia.

With Loeb’s extensive rally and rallycross background, coupled with Andersson’s skills, Abt Cupra aims to make a significant impact on the competition. The team’s ultimate goal is to achieve victory while enjoying the experience together in Sardinia.
