Sebastien Loeb went to the dogs in the mountains around Emyvale on Monday! He was to be out again yesterday (Tuesday) for a pre-Rally Ireland test with Citroën Sport and put in the time between runs kicking a stone around for a local mutt, which seemed to enjoy amusing the Frenchman.
Photographer Roy Dempster was there to see the action and reported that Loeb was 'on the doorhandles' of the C4 WRC. The roads were greasy and damp and the temperature was mild for mid-January but the Citroën engineers will gather plenty of data as they prepare to open their defence of world championships for drivers and manufacturers.
Loeb"s team mate Dani Sordo was to take over testing duties in the C4 today (Wednesday) and tomorrow (Thursday), probably on Braggen Mountain.
