Sébastien Loeb is winding down his WRC career and beginning a new one in the FIA GT Championship for McLaren. However, as he shared in a recent blog post, “I had this race in a back corner of my mind for a long time now…” but now that thought has become reality, and this is what he’ll be driving to do it. Flying Finn Ari Vatanen, set the 1988 world record for the Unlimited Division in a 405 T16. His run was captured in a film called Climb Dance by Jean Louis Morey. Robby Unser took the 405 T16 won the race in 1989, but didn’t break Vatanen’s record.
