almost four years Have passed since the 30 of June 2013, the date on which the French Sébastien Loeb won the all-time record of Pikes Peak. At the controls of the radical Peugeot 208 T16 PPIHC, the French stopped the clock in a time of 8:13.878. Since then, there have been few who have dreamed of a new dance to the clouds of the nine times champion of the WRC and the radical vehicle prepared by Peugeot Sport with 875 horsepower. And though for the moment seems not to be able to return to Pikes Peak, Loeb will be driving the Peugeot 208 T16 PPIHC.
beyond the exhibits that have been done with the Peugeot 208 T16 PPIHC from his record in the Pikes Peak ascent, the model of the French firm, decorated with the colors of Red Bull will return to the competition in a formal way. Specifically, Sébastien Loeb used the Peugeot 208 T16 PPIHC to compete in the Climb of Turckheim – 3 Épis, perhaps the proof of the Mountain’s most well-known Alsace, a land that saw the birth of the gaul. This test is scoring for the Championship of France of climbing a Mountain and played between days 9 and 10 of September.
The climb of Turckheim – 3 Épis little or nothing to do with Pikes Peak. Their distance, kind of route and morphology is very different, although this does not preclude the Peugeot 208 T16 PPIHC can roar once more. The record of this ascent of of 5950 meters is 2:23.745 with an average speed of 149,02 km/h, it records that as it is logical are threatened with the presence of Sébatien Loeb and the Peugeot 208 T16 PPIHC, a couple who will have the opportunity to back to star in a dance like the one that already took them to the record of Pikes Peak.
