Stéphane Lefebvre et Gabin Moreau

 

Stéphane Lefebvre cut his teeth in the promotional formulas of the French Rally Championship. Leading Junior in the 2012 “Volant 207”, he contested his first international rallies in the European Rally Championship the following year. In 2013, he finished fifth in the ERC’s “Two-wheel drive” category and topped the Junior standings of the 208 Rally Cup again.


Stéphane really came to the fore in the 2014 season, when he won the FIA Junior WRC, WRC3 and ERC Junior titles! The JWRC title was rewarded by a six-event programme in the following season’s WRC2, but Stéphane’s potential led to Citroën Racing adding other events to his programme.
Stéphane therefore contested thirteen rounds of the 2015 World Championship. After winning the WRC2 class at the Rallye Monte-Carlo, the rest of his season proved to be more difficult, but he continued to learn about rallying at world level in the DS 3 R5 and then the DS 3 RRC. He then competed in the final five rallies of the season in DS 3 WRC. His maiden outing ended with him finishing in the points in Germany, before ending the season with eighth place at Wales Rally GB.


For 2016, Stéphane joined the Abu Dhabi Total WRT. He began working alongside co-driver Gabin Moreau, who had just completed two seasons in the ERC with Chris Ingram. In Monte-Carlo, the season started with a fine fifth place.


Stéphane also showed he was improving in Portugal and Poland, but his season came to an abrupt halt in Germany. Competing outside of their Abu Dhabi Total WRT programme, Stéphane and Gabin were injured following a heavy crash.


Stéphane recovered in time to end the season at Wales GB, where he finished ninth. He was joined by Gabin at the Rallye du Var, for a test outing before attacking the 2017 season with the Citroën Total Abu Dhabi WRT.
