But that's not all! On Wednesday 31 January, from 3.30pm, Sébastien Loeb will take part in a question and answer session with Jean-Luc Moreau, the Rétromobile's official speaker. A true moment of communion with the public, this ceremony will also be an opportunity to evoke a number of anecdotes and to look back on the highlights of the career of the driver from Haguenau who was first noticed in 1996 during the Rallye Jeunes operation, the FFSA's detection programme.

Nearly three decades later, Sébastien Loeb is now considered to be one of the greatest drivers of all time. At the age of 50, more than ever, his thirst for challenges and victories remains intact. That's why the second part of the presentation, before giving way to a signing session, will allow visitors to find out all about his current and future projects.

"With just a few days to go before the opening of the 48th edition of the Dakar, we are delighted to unveil this exhibition, which has been designed and organised in partnership with the FFSA, and above all the presence of Sébastien Loeb. We are honoured that he has chosen the Rétromobile show to blow out his 50 candles with his public. Mark your calendars for January 31 in Hall 1 of the Porte de Versailles exhibition centre for a great moment of motor sport and passion!"
Romain Grabowski
Director of Rétromobile
"Thanks to the FFSA for not forgetting that I was about to turn 50 ;) The organisation of this celebration and this moment of sharing about my career is really nice. I'll be back from the Dakar and very happy to come and share this moment with my friends, motorsport fans and the public!"
