Mehdi Bennani starts this season as the 2016 WTCC Trophy winner, having scored outright victories in Hungary and Qatar to finish fifth overall in the points in a Sébastien Loeb Racing-run Citroën C-Elysée. Bennani sampled European karting and the World Series by Renault before winning back-to-back Moroccan circuit titles between 2008-09. After making his WTCC debut in ’09, he established himself as an ever-present and became the first Arabic driver to win an FIA world championship race in Shanghai in 2014. He joined newcomer Sébastien Loeb Racing for the 2015 season, just missing out on that year’s Yokohama Drivers’ Trophy.
