Sebastien Loeb did the double in the penultimate round of the FIA GT Series at the Circuito de Navarra in Spain last weekend.

Loeb and team-mate Alvaro Parente had a near-perfect weekend in their McLaren MP4-12C and after taking a convincing win in a wet qualifying race on the Sunday morning, followed that up with another dominant display in the main race leading from lights-to-flags.

It was the duo's first 'main' race victory - although they had already taken three qualifying race wins earlier this year.

They were closely followed home by the sister Sebastien Loeb Racing McLaren MP4-12C which was driven by Andreas Zuber and Mike Parisy.

"I started in pole position, just like in Slovakia but this time we had no trouble and the car was fantastic," said Loeb, who will compete in his final WRC event this week in France. "I was happy to see Andreas behind me after the first corner - we made a great race together, we were both pushing a lot and he was very close.

"This morning, it was the third time that we won the qualifying race but now it is the first time we have finally won the main race.

"It was a great weekend for the whole team so I am really happy for them," concluded the record-breaking nine-time World Rally Champion.
