Loïc Duval (Pronounced: Listeni/lˈk dˈvæl/ LOH-eek DOO-val) is a French race car driver born 12 June 1982. He is noted for being on the winning team of the 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Career[edit]

Duval during free practice at the first Motegi round of the 2010 Formula Nippon season.

He began his career in karting and in 2002 was the French Formula Campus champion. In 2003 he was the French Formula Renault champion. In 2004 he placed eleventh with two podiums in the Formula Three Euroseries and tested for Renault F1. The next year he finished sixth in F3 Euroseries and won a pole at the Macau Grand Prix. He then moved to Japan where he began racing in Formula Nippon and Super GT. In 2007 he continued in Formula Nippon and made two starts for A1 Team France in the A1 Grand Prix series in Australia and New Zealand. He won the 2009 Formula Nippon Championship with four wins driving for Nakajima Racing after finishing second in 2008.[1]


On 11 June 2014, the Le Mans Audi #1 driven by Duval was severely damaged, causting doubt whether it could be repaired for the race, or if Audi could build a new car in time, which would start from the back of the field. Duval was in reasonable condition, considering the magnitude of the accident.[2]
