28 January Laurent Bouliou, the winner of the only rallycross event to be held in France last year, launches his 2021 season by announcing that he has bought a Peugeot 208 from Team Hansen. The Frenchman has acquired the 2017 ex-works car with chassis 004, thus upgrading from his preset car which is chassis 003. “This car won the Nitro World Games with Timmy Hansen in 2018, it is in the lineage of the cars that Team Hansen operates today in the world championship. We can’t wait to do the first tests with it, several test sessions are already scheduled. There is a real change from our old 208 from a point of view: chassis, engine, ground connection,” said Bouliou who plans to contest the French championship but, depending on how many events Rallycross France manages to complete, may also or instead, take part in the FIA European Rallycross Championship. Bouliou has sold his old car to French Division Three star David Vincent.
30 January Rallycross driver JB Dubourg completes a successful season in the Trophee Andros by taking two wins and a second place in the three-race season-closer at Val-Thorens. In so doing, Dubourg clinches his fifth title in the French-based snow and ice series. Racing a Renualt Zoe, Dubourg also led DA Racing-Renault-Motul to the teams’ title in the championship. Nathanael Berthon (Peugeot) won the third race of the weekend, joined on the podium by Dubourg and Julien Febreau (Audi). Sylvain Pussier (Peugeot) pips Gerald Fontanel (Renault) to the Elite title in which Clementine Lhoste (Peugeot) is the Ladies Champion.
