Loïc Duval is one of his country’s fastest drivers. When the Frenchman won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with Audi for the first time in 2013, many observers agreed: his victory was overdue. In 2017, the former endurance racer lined up for the first time in the DTM under the banner of the four rings. He is known as a driver of extreme pace. He has perfected his driving style over many years as a sports car driver and at the same time as a single-seater racing driver in Japan. His driving style may be extreme, but outside of the cockpit the family-man is entirely mild-mannered. The Frenchman knew that his rookie DTM season in 2017 would be a learning year and he scored points twice, highlighted by his debut DTM podium at Zandvoort, on his way to being ranked eighteenth by the end of the season. With his sons and wife Gaëlle, the Audi driver maintains a family lifestyle in Switzerland.
