Rally: Sébastien Ogier and his co-driver involved in an accident in Poland

A little scare for Sébastien Ogier. The French driver, eight-time WRC world champion, was the victim of an accident while reconnaissance of the Polish Rally, in the company of his co-driver Vincent Landais.

“Seb and Vincent were involved in a road accident during reconnaissance for the Polish Rally and were taken for medical checks,” the Toyota Gazoo Racing team said on the X social network.

Two others injured in the accident

According to a source close to the organizers who requested anonymity, the two pilots “have nothing, were not injured”. “The collision took place during a reconnaissance on a national road, while they were driving at low speed,” this source told AFP.

According to the private 24-hour news television Polsat News, the car of the recent Knight of the Legion of Honor “collided with a passenger car”. “The incident occurred while he was familiarizing himself with one of the routes of the Polish Rally,” Polsat News reported, adding that “Sébastien Ogier and his co-driver were taken to hospital.” “Two other people were injured in the accident,” according to television.

The Poland Rally is scheduled to take place from June 27 to 30 in the northeast of the country. Ogier, 40, and Landais, 32, are only competing in a few WRC Championship events this season. The French driver is 4th in the general classification and won two rallies in a row in Croatia at the end of April and in Portugal in mid-May.
