WRC Drivers Who Have Done Endurance Races – DirtFish

This incredible all-rounder is by far the most successful rally to endurance conversion on the list. Such is the versatility of Stéphane Sarrazin, his CV seemingly stretches at will. Although he is primarily known as a circuit racer, don’t let Sarrazin’s love of circuit racing fool you into thinking he’s not good at rallying.

He never completed a full WRC season but his results in the third works Subaru Impreza between 2005 and 2006 proved he could adapt quickly to the discipline. A sixth-place finish on his second Tour de Corse outing and then narrowly missing out on the podium the next time in Spain in 2004 showed a sign of things to come.

Fourth was the best result he would achieve on the world stage, but he picked up an Intercontinental Rally Challenge podium at Rallye Monte-Carlo in 2009 and then a win in the final round of the European Rally Championship in 2014 in Corsica.

Twice Le Mans Series champion and three-time WEC winner, the only stain on Sarrazin’s endurance career is perhaps that he never won the 24 Hours of Le Mans, finishing second five times between 2007 and 2016. this disappointment, Sarrazin took an overall victory at the 2008 24 Hours of Spa with the dominant Vitaphone Maserati team.
