Indian Motorcycle today confirmed the lucky winner of the custom ‘FTR Loeb’ as Martin W from Toulouse. After a three-month campaign, Martin was randomly selected from over 9000 people across 20 countries who registered and took a test ride on an Indian FTR to be entered into the draw.
Martin said, “The day I got the call that I had won the FTR Loeb, I couldn’t believe it. I thought it couldn’t possibly be me, but it was. I told myself that I’d done the right thing by booking my FTR test ride on that famous Saturday morning. Being a great motorsport enthusiast and having also worked in the field, I couldn’t believe that Sébastien Loeb and I would now both be riding the same bike. He’s a renowned driver whom I admire and have enjoyed following throughout his career. I really enjoyed riding the bike during the test and can’t wait to discover the FTR Loeb at Wheels and Waves 2023 in Biarritz.”
Sébastien Loeb and Tank Machine envisioned the ‘FTR Loeb’ as a unique interpretation of the American V-twin that celebrates his nine World Rally championships and his passion for motorcycles. From World Rally to World Touring Cars, Pikes Peak to the Dakar Rally, Rallycross to Xtreme E and more, Sébastien Loeb’s exceptional career has seen him display his legendary skills across a multitude of disciplines while setting records along the way. What is less known is that Sébastien Loeb discovered his passion for motorsports in regional moped events before trying his hand at motorcycle racing on circuits and in enduro.
With just two being made, and with the first already delivered to the legend that is Sébastien Loeb, and on display in his trophy room, Martin will now be whisked away on a VIP trip to Wheels & Waves in June to meet the Tank Machine team and be presented with his half of the matching pair of truly special and unique ‘FTR Loeb’ customs.
