Follow the jump to watch Sebastien Loeb demonstrate his talents

Sebastien Loeb went to Argentina and did some dancing that wasn't the tango. The WRC champion performed a demonstration with his Citroen rally car that was reminiscent of gymkhana. Although it's a little repetitive and nowhere near as mind-blowing as this other guy's gymkhana session, it is clear that Seb knows his way around the barriers and over the jumps. Follow the jump to check out the vid.

      I love rally. I really wish we had WRC here in the states as well. Best drivers ever, and the car are among the toughest made to take the abuse that they do.

      rallying rules.

      Seb Loeb did some F1 testing and he was rather competitive, in other words, he's ready for F1 out of the box.

        Don't forget about Loeb's drives in the 908 HDi FAP. He is more interested in sports car s than he is in F1. He says he likes the diversity of a rally course when compared to a circuit. He is French so Le Mans is obviously part of his future. lol
      • 5 Years Ago
      He's the best driver in the world. This is rather tame.

      The giant different between Loeb and Ken Block...

      Loeb performed in front of a huge crowed watching... no tricks, no video cutting, no second try, no damag repair after hitting obstacles allowed...

      The Ken Block video is cut together and he hit several times some obstacles... pretty sure if Loeb would do a similar cut together video like Ken Block with a similar special prepared car with 230hp more than his WRC Rally car he would blow the door out of Ken Block...there is a reason why he won so many WRC Rally title... Loeb is the King of car controll

        @nagmashot

        Not really sure why you're bashing Ken Block. I haven't seen any video or read any interview where Ken Block claims to be better than Sebastien Loeb. Do you have something personal against the guy?

        Yes, Block made a video that was edited. I don't recall anyone trying to argue that. They're both very talented drivers, so why don't you just give them their due respect and leave it at that?
        • 5 Years Ago
        again, just because it was cut together, doesn't mean it wasn't precise driving.
        • 5 Years Ago
        It should also be noted that Seb is a straight-line driver. Throwing the back-end out isn't really his thing...that's for the Scandinavians. I'd say he did a pretty solid job here, considering his preferred driving style.
        • 5 Years Ago
        To add....Loeb has the best car control on the planet. You can't compare this type of driving to F1 because it asks for different inputs so his precision is unmatchable.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I might add that while Block had a huge empty lot to do all his tricks, Loeb only had a small space in front of a crowd, therefore limiting the trics he can do, rendering his show a little repetitive. None the less, we can see his awesome car control.

        Btw, no need to take away from Block, even if his video was cut and editited..he is still a great driver, better than me that is for damn sure.

        @nagmashot

        um so just because it was edited in a way that you didn't see his failures during the "practice" of which the video was taped during, it means its a fake? as stated, the video was of him PRACTICING, it wasn't an actual gymkhana run. most of what you saw was actual gymkhana maneuvers and in no way did i see him actually wreck the car. he might of hit that barrier, but that's still precise driving. did you not see the times where he came within INCHES of the obstacles he was going around?

        god, you are as much of a biased, anti-American asshole as when i was on Streetfire. that was some of the most moronic stuff i have ever read on here.

        @xpolarx

        so WRC is straight line driving? they don't flick cars around hairpins or actually go around turns? hmmmm, i must of not been watching WRC then, because they sure weren't going in a straight line.
        • 5 Years Ago
        @tankd0g:

        I dunno, I met Ken Block once and he kinda came off as a douche. But maybe he was having a bad day and/or realized I was only there for Pastrana and Sarasin :P
        • 5 Years Ago
        @Elmo & hoosker

        the author was so nice to edit his threat deleting the part where he claimed that Loeb´s driving wasn´t so impressive like the one from Ken Block (with video link to the cut together Ken Block video) ... now it looks like that I try to blame Ken Block for no reason... the author of that threat simple deleted the part were he blamed Leob... now I look like the stipid fool...
        • 5 Years Ago
        He'd definitely lose in a personality shootout against Block though :)
      • 5 Years Ago
      I'm about to say something provocative. The only reason everyone is mentioning Ken Block is because he's American. If he was any good he'd be racing for a factory team in the WRC.
      It's the same thing as all the media coverage about Mark Webber here in Australia, realistically, he's alright but not great, but according to the media he's ready to battle Jenson Button for the championship.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Ken Block DOES drive for a factory team, but not in the WRC. he drives for Subaru Rally Team USA in the SCCA Rally America series. which is a fairly big deal.

        another thing is that he WOULD of been racing for Subaru WRC before the whole thing about them pulling out of the 2009 WRC season. him AND Travis were supposed to run a limited schedule in the Impreza WRCs just as they've been doing the past 2 years, only with more rounds than in the past.

        @ Alex Barry

        Isn't it ironic that Jenson Button is now the man to chase? Three years ago he was Britain's Mark Webber.

      pues hombre que estubo orgasmico eso.. este pibe esta de puta madre...

      sorry i had to say it
      • 5 Years Ago
      I Love WRC, too bad we cant get it here in America the land of Nascar.

      Loeb Rocks...
        • 5 Years Ago
        Well said Duke, surely an hour or two per month of WRC on speed wouldnt hurt, even in the early morning hours, I havent watched Speed Channel since they dropped WRC, There are far more Rally fans then Speed realise, they need to open their eyes, Im sure even some of the Nascar fans miss it too.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yes, I've missed WRC since SPEED decided to drop it, to devote more time time to NA$CAR minutae.

        I consider Seb and Tony Stewart to be alike, in that no matter what kind of car you put them in, they would shine.
