Amazing start of season for TAG Heuer watch & eyewear Ambassador Sébastien Ogier, to celebrate Carrera 50 years anniversary !
Last week-end, Sébastien Ogier demonstrating his skills by winning the Swedish Rally and taking the lead of the World Rally Championship with his brand new Volkswagen Polo WRC. After one year to develop his new car, Sébastien Ogier celebrates in style the 50 years anniversary of the Carrera: he's realizing almost a perfect start of the season!
After his second place in the inaugural Monte-Carlo rally, the French Rally driver won an 8th WRC rally last week-end, with almost 1'30'' in advance from the Nordic drivers, said more used to the snowing and icing conditions than other drivers. On the podium, Sébastien Ogier proudly worn his Carrera chronograph caliber 1887.
By winning also the Power stage, Sébastien scored additional 28 points. He's now leading the WRC ranking with 3 points more than his runner-up, the nine times World Rally Champion Sébastien Loeb (who will only run few more rallies this year) and already 22 points more than the 3rd driver (and then first competitor for the title) in WRC ranking, Mads Ostberg.
We wish Sébastien that the next rally in Mexico will mark another milestones in this particular season : another good celebration of the Carrera anniversary to come, in the homeland of the Panamericana race!
Kindly note all rallies of the 2013 FIA World Rally Championship are exclusively timed by TAG Heuer Timing devices.
Congratulations to Sebastien Ogier
