The Rally of Sardinia proved a huge success for Kronos Total Citro?n WRT this weekend with an impressive fifth victory in a row for World Rally Champion S?bastien Loeb and a record breaking 25th victory for co-driver Daniel Elena.

The Italian victory saw co-driver Daniel Elena become the first co-driver in WRC history to reach 25 wins and extended Loebs championship lead to a massive 31 points. Loeb is now a single win away from equalling the 26 WRC victories achieved by the great Carlos Sainz.

S?bastien Loeb commented: “Victory always tastes sweet. But this one is special. For Daniel, its a historic moment. Knowing just how much I want to beat Carlos Sainzs record myself, I can easily imagine exactly how Daniel is feeling now, after becoming the first co-driver to chalk up 25 wins.”

Commenting on his record-breaking achievement Daniel Elena said: “The feeling is indescribable. Its an intense happiness that is hard to put into words. Id like to dedicate this record to my family, my daughter Dorine and my friend Beef Park.”
